The Babysitter ★★½

I don't hate McG. I liked the first Charlie's Angels, and this light comedy has many of the same assets: a likable-enough cast, swift-pacing, and fun-if-unadventurous comedy. There's an enthusiasm and brightness to the few McG movies I've seen that makes them unremarkably decent.

For a better recent night-with-babysitter-goes-terribly-wrong comedy/quasi-horror movie, I'd recommend Better Watch Out for your full attention. The Babysitter made for agreeable background noise while I went about some other business last night, which is I wanted from it, and it delivered.
