Noah, is not your typical entertain-the-kids-no-matter-how-boring-it-is kind of sitter. He's reluctant to take a sitting gig; he'd rather, well, be doing anything else, especially if it involves slacking. When Noah is watching the neighbor's kid he gets a booty call from his girlfriend in the city. To hook up with her, Noah takes to the streets, but his urban adventure spins out of control as he finds himself on the run from a maniacal drug lord.

I had a whole review going addressing how ridiculous/ludicrous/insane/bonkers/unbelievable it is that people will give comedies like Horrible Bosses and Bridesmaids pass/praise and then will dump all over a comedy like this. But, then firefox crashed and I lost all my eloquently written words. Thus, I will just write that The Sitter is much better than most comedies, and I like it.
It’s not big, it’s not clever and it most certainly isn’t funny.
I don’t want to call David Gordon Green a sellout *cough*he is a sellout*cough* but his recent journey into bland mainstream comedy is rather depressing. Where once he was compelled to make interesting independent character studies now we get comedies devoid of laughs. Jonah Hill proved he could actually be both funny and sort of endearing in 21 Jump Street but here he is back to familiar and unwelcome territory. The three kids, including Where the Wild Things Are’s Max Records, do their best in roles that elicit few laughs which means Green relies on Sam Rockwell as a drug dealer to bring any real colour or interest to the film. Sadly, even he struggles with a broad and obvious script that goes for lowest common denominator targets.
I wish I had just re-watched Adventures in Babysitting.
The Sitter sits in the same vein of movies as some other movies with Jonah Hill. Although some of his comedies are incredibly funny, some are just plain dumb. This is sadly one of them. It's barely funny, and the story is not that interesting, but it was a way to pass the time at least. Would never watch it again.
This comedy has Sam Rockwell playing a drug dealer who stores cocaine in dinosaur eggs, and has a gang of bodybuilders who carry sledge hammers, how is this not your favourite comedy? Sure, the moments with the kids are kind of lame, and the mugshots in the credits are brutal, but the film runs only 80 minutes and has some big time laughs. As well, the film gives props to Gymkata and I Come in Peace, so it has that going for it to.
I'm kind of polarised by this flick.
Whilst I didn't get any genuine laughs out of it, I was mostly entertained and engrossed for the whole run time (which thankfully was only a perfect 90 minutes).
However, it is a lackluster farce that feels incredibly redundant and simply a sub-par retread of greater comedies. The only thing that sets it apart is the ever-fantastic Sam Rockwell. Who is so great as a drug-dealer who just wants friends.... and his money.
I would have given this a slightly higher rating if it wasn't for those kids. They were just so goddamn annoying.
So this isn't the most entertaining film to watch, but it is funny and really cute. The soundtrack is pretty cool too. The directing, cinematography isn't anything to write home about. And the acting is very nice.
Re-watchable: Not really
Enjoyable: For the most part
Rating: 3 and a half stars
Remake non dichiarato di "Tutto quella notte" questo "The Sitter" non funziona.Jonah Hill ha dimostrato di saper fare molto meglio e se non fosse per il personaggio di Sam Rockwell questo film sarebbe da evitare come la peste.
Jonah Hill is hilarious in literally everything he does.
The Sitter is an uninspired comedy held together solely by the likability of lead actor Jonah Hill. The jokes are mostly hit or miss and for the most part they don't stay with you after the movie ends. However, there are still a few comedic gems in there.
Really stupid and over the top, as expected when reading the summary. Sometimes funny though...
Of the "baby sitter takes kids to city and wacky night ensues" movies I've watched recently this one wasn't the worst.
I'm probably the only person in America who loved this movie. Yes, its so stupid but so hilarious.
I was laughing at it, not with it. Yeah, that's what I'm going with.
Better than I expected but still a very shitty movie.
The intro is cool, some dialogues are cool (like the phone ringing one), the layer upon layer of loser life is cool, the drug dealer world is cool but very bothersome, the music usually sucks and there were serious storyline issues.
In other words, it pretty much sucked.
the never ending NYC movie list.
feel free to add more if i missed any.
