I learned something the other day. The famous building in Chicago with the diamond-shaped
roof is called the Smurfit-Stone Building. Who knew? I had just always called it the
Adventures in Babysitting building. Remember that scene where the little girl climbs
down the rope out of the window and is hanging there until her brother rescues her?
I personally think the scene was ruined when after he gets her, she says “Oh Brad”
in this breathy, creepy way no one should ever be saying their brother’s name.
Oh well, I love this movie anyway, and think its one of the classic movies of the
80’s (of course way down on the list from the Brat Pack movies).
I was out late one night and got a shot of an empty Van Buren train station.
The skyline with the Smurfit-Stone building in the background is a bonus,
in my opinion. What do you think of this movie?
