Here's another movie I bought off Ebay. I have never seen this but apparently Phoebe did it right around the time between Fast Times & Private School. It's super rare to find. Does anyone remember it? Is it good? God, don't let it be another Paradise. That was hideous!

I actually haven't even heard of this one at all. I'll have to check it out. I like to hear about some of our favorites in lessor seen films because some of them can wind up being a treasure!

Never heard of it.
Please tell us if it was good or not after you see it.

ALSO...you can look it up on www.imdb.com and see if anyone reviewed it yet!

I peeked on imdb. Two people reviewed it and said it was good. It's a TV movie...which is why many of us dont remember seeing it, I think.

Okay, I watched Baby Sister yesterday. It was actually pretty good, for a tv movie. Phoebe was great, as usual. Can she ever look bad? [Roll Eyes] The story focused around Annie (Phoebe) who drops out of college and ends up living with her sister Marsha. Marsha has a boyfriend who she's been with for awhile but as of lately, their relationship has been strained due to her busy work schedule. It doesn't take a genius to figure out what happens next. There's also a whole sub-plot surrounding the dynamics between Annie and her father. Overall, I liked Baby Sister. I just wonder why Phoebe did a tv movie in the midst of her movie career? Seems like regressing don't you think?

I agree with you Riptide. Maybe now that alot of tv shows are being released on DVD, made for tv movies will follow. This would be worth a purchase.

O heavens yes. But I woory about people fighting over the rights to release it. But seriously, some good made for tv movies box set would be awesome to have. I mean, just purchasing a legit copy of Quarterback Princess or something.

Well, it took 8 years but my wish for this to get a DVD release came to fruition! Weird! I bought a crappy bootleg back in 2005. Looks horrible...wonder what the new DVD quality looks like?? ...

So, last night i test-checked my brand new Baby Sister dvd. I only watched the first 5 minutes or so,
so i can't comment on the movie itself yet.

The disc is as bare-bones as they come. There's a static menu-screen with just a 'play movie' option to click.
There's no set-up menu, no scene selection, and no extra's. There's not even the usual cross-promotional trailers
from Scorpion Releasing.

Now for the good news : The picture-quality is actually surprisingly good. It's in fullscreen
(which is probably its original aspect ratio, because of its made-for-tv origins), but is mastered
in 24p (for those who care about the technical specs), which gives it a very theatrical movie-like appearance.
Colors never look muted or faded. It seems like they really put some care into (re-)mastering the movie for the dvd.

On a side note : The catalogue-number on the side of the sleeve is SCOTV001, which may indicate
this is Scorpion's first release in a line of tv-movies they are bringing to dvd.. who knows.

I agree Johnny Roarke!!! I started watching mine this weekend & I think it looks pretty darn good for a tv movie!

I fell asleep cause I was tired but I enjoyed what I saw thus far! This was done between Fast Times & Private School!! Phoebe looks absolutely incredible!!

Also, as a relatively new Dynasty obsessed fan, it's so cool to see Claudia Blaisdale (Pamela Bellwood) acting alongside Phoebs!

Scorpion did a nice job with this! Cover art is cool & the clear dvd case just makes it look fresh and clean! Worth every penny!

Watched Baby Sister last night and it was very good!

It was directed by Steven Hilliard Stern who did lots of tv-movies like
The Park is Mine, Getting Physical and Not Just Another Affair which i also own.

Phoebe Cates was fantastic and i liked Pamela Bellwood and Ted Wass too.
The score, composed by Fred Karlin, is very good.
Especially the theme tune "When It Gets Too Hot" is excellent.
Too bad the end credits don´t say who sang it.

Nice relationship drama, health club action and some Venice Beach scenery.
Perfect early 80s atmosphere!

And i just noticed that it was cindy who was the new Dynasty obsessed fan,
not Muffy like i said on another thread. My bad!
