Episode 6 - Who Blows Off Elisabeth Shue?

The summer of 1987 rolls along on Out of Touchstone, as Mike and Chad focus on two fun comedies from one of the best years of cinema.  First up is ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING, a classic in the teen comedy genre with a winning performance by the wonderful Elisabeth Shue.  But does the film spend too much time highlighting the negative aspects of a big city?  The episode wraps up with STAKEOUT, as the hosts discuss the film's ability to blend comedy with suspense while showcasing (or mocking) the trivial aspects of police work.

  • Elisabeth Shue's early career

  • The big city and racial tensions in ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING
