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

I just had to turn it off when the coke went everywhere...
27 April 2012 | by a_lavallSee all my reviews

If you're looking for a comprehensive review of this movie then this isn't it... I only watched half an hour of it. To be honest, up to the point of the cocaine going everywhere, I wasn't really hating it. I think I had just reached my life quota of watching films where coke is easily robbed and explodes all over the protagonist. It's not like I am some sort of fiend who can't stand the idea of coke going to waste, even fake movie coke; that's not the point. It's just nothing like in a comedy when someone gets puked on and you literally only have to see it for less than 5 seconds. The clean up process occurs off screen and the movie continues. Instead, the cocaine becomes the whole premise of the movie. So as I watched Jonah Hill wrestle with a kid in the car over some kind of Fabergé egg (that we all knew was full of coke) I thought 'If this goes everywhere I am turning this off' and it did... So I did...

Because like my Daddy always used to say "You spill $10,000 worth of coke all over yourself, and that sh*t is occupying your whole day..."

He didn't really say this...
