OK, so it was pretty bad. But if you’re a fan of Jonah Hill or enjoyed films like Superbad and Get Him To The Greek then you wont hate The Sitter.

It’s an unimaginative script; far-fetched, stupid, and pretty unbelievable unrealistic.

Jonah Hill plays Noah, an intelligent kid who puts his d*ck first, which obviously gets his in to trouble. Throw a couple of unruly but adorable children into the mix –who is forced to baby-sit by his mother-  and a girlfriend who wont ‘put-out’ unless he buys drugs from an insane drug dealer and we’ve got ourselves a film! Albeit a really dull and unexciting film.

The only good things about it were Sam Rockwell’s nut job drug dealer and Landry Bender (Blithe) -a scarily mature little girl who wants to hit up the clubs and get famous- providing 90% of the comedy. Though it felt wrong listening to a child sing along to rap music about getting f**ked up. Though it’s not to my personal taste, if you’re a fan of hip-hop and rap music then it’s got a pretty decent soundtrack too.


The Sitters feeble storyline didn’t really end anywhere. Nothing gets resolved or wrapped up; only Noah got the pretty girl at the end. Shocker! I didn’t see that one coming. And don’t act like I just ruined the ending for you. A monkey could predict that.


I’m not going to say don’t watch it but if this is the only review your going to read (doubtful) then you probably wont. It was a way to pass two hours and if you’ve seen everything else that’s out then give it a go. You may even laugh once. But you will forget about it once the credits roll.
