6/3/18 Episode104: Weekend with the Babysitter (1970)

Listen to the Let's Watch A Full-Length Movie on YouTube podcast and watch Weekend with the Babysitter (1970), embedded above, at the same time. Start with the podcast. Click here to launch the podcast in separate browser tab.

Co-host Carl is out this week, so I'm joined once again by the terrific comedian Susan Maletta, who really hates this movie. Thanks to his wife and child leaving him, a man with a mid-life crisis hangs out with the babysitter for the weekend. He meets hippies and smokes weed and goes to the races and, yes, bangs the babysitter!

Director Don Henderson had shot a similar movie one year prior, called The Babysitter (1969) with the same male lead and the babysitter character having the same name. But in The Babysitter, the father was an Assistant District Attorney, while in Weekend with the Babysitter, he's a film director. Say no more, Don!
