Her first big break came in 1984 when she landed the co-starring role in the hit film The Karate Kid. That gig served as a springboard to more work as Shue landed her first starring role in 1987's Adventures in Babysitting. Elisabeth also scored supporting roles in popular films such as Cocktail with Tom Cruise, and a pair of Back to the Future sequels.
