Despite the majority of critics panning this film, I had to check this movie out -- especially after seeing that hilarious trailer ("Don't *@$# with me, Rodrigo."). And I was surprised by it. I thought it was fun and had more funny parts than most critics let on. Of course, this is a very perverse version of Adventures in Babysitting, and it's not as wholesome as that 1980s classic. But, despite its foul language and very adult situations, "The Sitter" has more heart than one would think -- with Jonah Hill dealing with the three kids he's been tasked to watch over. If you have a night where you're feeling like laughs, this one may surprise you.

Started off good. Ended good. It got a little tiresome with so many things going wrong for poor Noah, but they pulled everything together nicely, and left me feeling good. I enjoyed it overall. Too me, I would give 3 stars to a movie that was just ok, but I had a good time here, and so I gave it 4 stars.

This movie is ridiculously funny! Jonah Hill is one of my favorite up and coming comedians. Its like a modern day Adventures in Babysitting (a classic)and instead of playboys and thor look alikes its got drug dealers and a misunderstood trio of kids, one of which can't help but to blow things up! Definitely didn't regret watching this movie!

The kids in this movie are just hilariously funny, I just don't like the plot twist where it turns out the boy is gay. I'm tired that every single movie has a gay character. I'm getting sick of it.

The movie starts out as a bad sex comedy. Jonah Hill stars as Noah Griffith, a slightly nerdy, obese young adult who peddles a bicycle. In the opening scene he is performing oral services for a pretty blond girl (Ari Graynor) who believes fat guys do it best, however she won't return the favor as she claims she has a touch of food poisoning. She is a coke slut loved by Noah.

Mom (Jessica Hecht) coerces Noah into babysitting for the neighbor (Erin Daniels). The kids are a 13 year old boy with responsibility issues, an eight year old girl going on 16, and an adopted kid from El Salvador who acts like he is part of a cartel. Noah is irresponsible as this turns into an "Adventures in Babysitting" adult comedy as he attempts to score some cocaine for his "girlfriend" who has promised him real sex in return.

As I watched the movie for the first time, I had the feeling I have seen this before. Predictable, trite, and mostly unfunny. A "me-too" comedy. A lower tier rental at best. Go watch Harold and Kumar instead.

F-bomb, sex talk, no nudity

Jonah Hill plays a character (Noan) in this film. The first scene depicts him having oral sex with a woman. The movie degrades from there if you can believe it. It is 80 minutes of sexual situations, drunks, buying illegal drugs, stealing cars, car wrecks, foul language, stealing gifts from kids, shoplifting, guns, street fights and dragging the children that he is responsible for through all of this. Through all of this we also have to watch this loser (Noah) give life counseling to a young actor playing a 13 year old who is gay.

This movie is one tasteless scene after another. It ranges from peeing on the floor to police officers stealing drugs and jewelry from the suspected criminal. This movie has no redeeming value and is simply one predictable and disgusting scene from beginning to end.

This is just another Hollywood movie with clichés on gays and racial discrimination. They barely made more money at the box office than it cost to make the movie. There is a reason for that, it is very bad. Ugh! What a waste of time!

I purchased this after seeing 21 Jump Street in theaters. I thought 21 Jump Street was so funny, I saw it twice in two days. So, thinking I would stay on my Jonah high, I bought this. It's not very funny at all; despite a pretty decent cast; and it failed on almost every level. I only managed to chuckle two or three times, and the majority of the movie was really flat and lame. Other reviewers have compared it to Adventures in Babysitting, and the plot is quite similar but they tried to drive it in a more adult-direction. I had high hopes for this, I think Jonah Hill will eventually become one of our funniest and most celebrated actors ever and I've never seen Sam Rockwell in anything I didn't think was brilliant. Rent it on PPV or netflix if you really want to see it, but save your money and buy 21 Jump Street when it comes out.

I believed this to be a remake of Adventures in Babysitting...I was wrong though it stole some of the situations. I must have been stupid to watch all the way to the end, stupid, stupid movie. Lot's of cursing even out of the mouths of young children, maybe they thought that would be funny, it wasn't.
Guess Jonah Hill lives in these kind of movies silly & stupid. If you like mindless crap this is the movie for you, if not stay away.

Now look, I wasn't expecting anything amazing, but this was still particularly unimaginative. Too many predictable happy endings. The kids have over-the-top issues that somehow get resolved after one stupid night of rehashing Adventures in Babysitting.

If you want something on in the background while you gorge on junk food, then consider this film.
