Babysitter's Black Book full movie review - Good premise, ending seemed rushed
Not too bad for an 'awareness' film. It definitely depicts the good and bad that can happen in these particular circumstances, BUT...
So much time seemed to be spent on setting the scene (i.e. making sure the audience knows how stunning the cast is - which they totally are!) and I felt more time could have been spent on the film's pinnacle moments. It would've had a much more lasting impact.
Towards the end it felt rushed - like I had to put pieces together to figure out what was going on, and it didn't seem to be a realistic time line. I've seen a few other movies with the same type of themes - albeit much more raunchy and seductive in comparison to Babysitter's Black Book - and those others I was hooked into watching right to the end, where as this one only made me want to watch it to the end to know how it all miserably played out.
It was a really good idea for a film, especially with kids these days growing up way too fast - shows them how even the most glamorous lifestyles and mistakes do come with a price. It highlights the issues with America's Higher Education System and what it causes families and individuals to be pushed to do.
Worth the watch, something I would be able to recommend to someone, but it isn't something I'd choose to watch again.
