Worst. Babysitter. Ever.
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.
What would you do if you were charged with babysitting three really weird and obnoxious kids? Well, you should probably refrain from going the Jonah Hill route - as in taking them on a nightly car trip to get some blow for your girlfriend.
I'm not gonna spoil too much here, but let's just say that all hell breaks loose, as the pandemonious circumstances take one bad turn after another. Very random and over-the-top, there's not much of a plot to speak of, but it didn't really bother me that much as I had a good time throughout. Kind of like a spin-off with Hill's character in Superbad and almost as funny.
It may be short of a McLovin to…
I enjoyed Jonah Hill and the young ones who played Blithe and Slater but the rest of the movie isnt very funny and usually convienant.

I hated every character.
Kinda scraping the bottom of the comedy barrel.
a modern "adventures in babysitting" with jonah hill
Noah (Jonah Hill) is a slacker layabout, who agrees to babysit the three kids to allow his divorced mother, Sandy (Jessica Hecht) to go out on a date. Arriving at the household, Noah finds three dysfunctional kids: Blithe (Landry Bender) whose gaol is to become a celebrity; Rodrigo (Kevin Hernandez) an adopted Panamanian kid, who likes to destroy things and Slater (Max Records) who can't function without medication and has no self-awareness. When Marisa (Ari Graynor), Noah’s sort of “girlfriend” calls to promise him sex, if he picks up some drugs for her and joins her at a party, Noah feels this is an offer too good to refuse. He sets off to the party via drug-dens, car crashes, run-ins…
