Trivia

Alicia Silverstone is rumoured to have turned down the part in this film on numerous occasions. She finally agreed after her nude scenes were removed. See more »

Goofs

When the babysitter is putting the baby in the crib, as she first stands there holding it, you can clearly see by the stiff limbs that it is a doll. The next cut, with the camera looking in past her shoulder, does show a real baby. See more »

Miss Silverstone is never better than the pictures she appears in...
19 March 2002 | by (Colorado Springs, CO) – See all my reviews

...so it's hard to believe anyone is checking out THE BABYSITTER for her lisping, nymphet presence. What you have here is low-grade, late-night, Cinemax fare trying to capitalize on Silverstone's ability to come off as Lolita to a reasonably capable cast of old pros like George Segal and J.T. Walsh (along with one of those London twins for youthful good measure). This kind of a film needs some sexual momentum to keep it entertaining; and, sadly, this movie is lacking in eroticism...Silverstone more so.
