Click to View Larger... Click to View Larger...Weekend With the Babysitter - "A middle-aged husband falls for his children's teen-aged babysitter." A simple plot synopsis to be sure. The movie also involves drug deals gone bad, a cheating wife, (she's neglected the husband, which is why the babysitter catches his eye,) and of course, murder.

George E. Carey wrote and produced this movie, which was a semi-sequel to an earlier film he also wrote and starred in called "The Babysitter (1969)". I guess old George figured an easy way to get to do love scenes with hot young chicks was to make 'em himself. He apparently got tired of the pseudo-jailbait, as this was the last movie of this type he was involved in the creation of, even though both "babysitter" movies made a profit.

 

I saw this movie when it was first released, and since I was 11 at the time, I was interested in only one thing, female nudity, and there is a decent (indecent?) amount of that. I recently viewed it on Netflix, and was surprised to find that it's actually a fairly watchable movie. It's a very good example of what it is. An exploitation movie done on a low budget, that manages to entertain, and rises its head slightly above the rest of the pack. There will be times when you'll roll your eyes, laugh when you're not supposed to, and groan at the heavy handedness of it's "message", but that was an actual genre of film back in the 60s and 70s, so just go with it.

You can enjoy it at YouTube: Here.

It's also available on streaming video at Netflix: Here.

The movie is rated "R", and is of course NSFW, and you probably don't want your kids to see it, unless you want them to grow up and create a website like this...

If you feel the need to own this little gem, it's available at Amazon.com by itself, and as part of a collection. The collection set also includes "The Babysitter". Links at the end of this article.

The movie is worth a watch, don't expect a lot, but I think you'll enjoy it. It's drive-in exploitation at it's best, just try not to laugh and groan too hard at the "messages" it tries to deliver.
