Storyline

Noah is not your typical entertain-the-kids-no-matter-how-boring-it-is kind of sitter. He's reluctant to take a sitting gig; he'd rather, well, be doing anything else, especially if it involves slacking. When Noah is watching the neighbor's kid he gets a booty call from his girlfriend in the city. To hook up with her, Noah takes to the streets, but his urban adventure spins out of control as he finds himself on the run from a maniacal drug lord. Written by 20th Century publicity

Everything goes terribly wrong this time
19 March 2012 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

The Sitter - TRASH IT (D) The Sitter has to be one of the most dreadful movies of the year. A movie about a guy babysitting as his mom can go on date has gone terribly wrong, maybe it looks good on paper but on role its just bad. This one tries so hard to be R-rated that it's annoying. Jonah Hill looked stuck in a fat suit & didn't put any effort into the character. Max Records and Landry Bender were fine but Rodrigo was terribly annoying. Why a family would adopts a grown child when they already have trouble in their marriage. Sam Rockwell and all his steroids team were not funny at all. Overall, just trash this garbage not worth watching at all!
