High school student Chris Parker (Elisabeth Shue) sets off to rescue a runaway friend from the bus station in downtown Chicago, taking along her baby-sitting charge for the evening, Sara (Maia Brewton). Sara's 15-year-old brother Brad (Keith Coogan) who is smitten with Chris, and his

friend Daryl (Anthony Rapp) tag along. The adventures begin with a blown tire and quickly escalate to a run-in with a car-theft ring. Elisabeth Shue does much better here than in her KARATE KID debut. Twenty-eight-year-old director Chris Columbus made his debut behind the camera with this film

after having written several successful movies, including GREMLINS, THE GOONIES, and YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMES. Not a bad start.
