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

Alternate Versions

The unrated version runs almost six minutes longer than the theatrical version. Some scenes are extended and there are numerous instances of profanity directed at and employed by the children in the sitter's charge which are missing from the theatrical version. Three additional cast, not present in the theatrical version, are noted on a screen that appears after the credit scroll: Dreama Walker as Stephanie, Ron Phippen as Guy Having Sex, and Jessica DiGiovanni as Girl Having Sex. A second screen credits two additional songs in the soundtrack. See more »

2 March 2012 | by placebotonicSee all my reviews

You know what this movie is about and I'm not going to go there. What I will tell you is that the movie is better than 5.5/10 it's got now, you just need to watch it relaxed, don't expect it to be a masterpiece, take it as a fun, comedy flick which exaggerates, but not the Rob Schneider kind of way, his movies are painful to watch, this one is simply entertaining. But what about the flaws you say? Oh, it's got many, probably too many to list, but now that I've watched it, I probably couldn't name you three but I could describe you three scenes I laughed most at.

Is it harsh to rate kids' performances? Anyway, they were not at all bad, in my opinion, they were better than that kid in high-praised Hugo.
