    Synopsis


    The Sitter
    A college dropout becomes a babysitter to make some quick cash, and takes his three young charges on an epic urban adventure in this comedy from director David Gordon Green (George Washington, Pineapple Express). Noah (Jonah Hill) isn't a babysitter, but he'll do just about anything for a little extra cash in his wallet. Shortly after he's hired to look after three young children, though, Noah gets a call from his girlfriend promising sex in exchange for drugs. Desperate and horny, the irresponsible sitter packs his unsuspecting wards into the car and heads for the seedy part of town. Before Noah can think twice the whole night has gone to hell, and he's on the run from a pair of murderous drug dealers (Sam Rockwell and J.B. Smoove) with no qualms about shooting at small targets. Ari Graynor, Max Records, and Method Man co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      A touching, slightly raunchy remake

      It became pretty obvious, when this film was released, that it was a sort of reboot/remake of the 1987 "Adventures in Babysitting," starring Elizabeth Shue. The basic concept is the same, but the characters are all quite different. Furthermore, Jonah Hill is about as far removed from Shue as you can get. But it's funny, cute and has its touching moments. However, due to some of its somewhat racier content (it IS Jonah Hill, after all) I would not recommend it for family viewing.

      Dirty humor - Movie Info When the world's most irresponsible babysitter takes three of the world's worst kids on an unforgettable overnight adventure through the streets of New York City, it's anyone's guess who's going to make it home in one piece. The Sitter is a new level of twisted and debauched hilarity from the director of Pineapple Express, starring Jonah Hill.

      Adventures in Babysitting "remake"

      Adventures in Babysitting "remake" can best describe The Sitter. Although, this has more foul language and more sexuality, it's basically the same premise as the 1987 movie. The best scene of the movie was when Johan Hill's character stopped by the kids clothing store. The clerk thought he was a pedophile and hilarious misconceptions arose. YUUUUUP.

      I love this comedy! And Jonah Hill is excellent!! Jonah is so creative with his delivery of his lines...just Hillarious. And the 3 kids he watches one nite are in a funny class of there own. Great Kid Characters! If you like Hangover (or similar) then you will die laughing at this film. Enjoy!

      A hilarious look at what goes wrong for a babysitter who isn't a normal babysitter. Jonah Hill isn't your typical babysitter but ends up showing his inner love of babysitting. The raunchiness of the humor gives way to heart felt relationships between the babysitter and kids. Not safe for kids, but a very funny adult comedy!

      A long way from Jonah Hill's best or funniest work, but this movie works at times. They seemed to be caught between attempting to make a funny movie and a feel good movie, but actually didn't accomplish either. It is worth a watch and the price was right at bestbuy.com, maybe subsequent watches will present new laughs.

      Disappointing

      Honestly, if it wasn't for Jonah Hill I'd probably give this movie only one star. He's about the only good thing about it. The story is lame and predictable, there are maybe a handful of funny parts. I was really surprised that Sam Rockwell is in this movie, he shouldn't lower his standards to be in something like this.

      News flash,,,no hot teenage female babysitter in this movie. This movie contains just the opposite, One unhot male teenage babysitter with a horrible attitude. Guess I thought it was hilarious because of its lunacy. Bad attitude and bad language take on the world. Liked it,
