Shue Regrets F-word Moment In Film Classic

Actress ELISABETH SHUE's foul-mouthed rant in cult movie ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING came back to haunt her when her three-year-old son adopted the line as his personal mantra. The LEAVING LAS VEGAS star's dad warned Shue about the impact the line "Don't f**k with the babysitter" would have on young kids, but she chose to ignore him. She recalls, "My father wrote me a three-page letter telling me why I could not say that word because then kids would think it was OK to say it. I said, 'Oh God dad, that's never going to happen.'" But his words proved to be wise when the actress showed the film to her young son. She adds, "He ran around the house screaming the word over and over again for the next few weeks."
