The Babysitter is one hilarious adult themed short!
27 August 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this on Atomfilms.com. This was a pretty hilarious comedy short about an-18-year-old blond babysitter reluctantly being left in charge of a much older-than-her offspring whose girlfriend just left him. To entice her to stay the guardians (one of whom I recognized as Molly Hagan from "Herman's Head") offer her $100. Things are strained until this "offspring" offers some beer...Directed by one David H. Steinberg (is he related to the comedian with the similar name? I gotta check him out), things start slow until the events after the beer. And wait till you see the surprise ending! Like I said, it's on Atomfilms.com. I highly recommend this one!
