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

Pure and Utter Garbage - Worst film since Jack and Jill
4 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

Remarkably bad. Good concept, horrible writing, profanity throughout, including from children, as if that's funny. Pure garbage. Jonas Hill, still chubby, picked an incredibly poor film to star in. Some of the lines are atrocious, "you have more issues than a magazine stand." Really? This line was delivered to a kid, by the way. A little girl in the film, for example, wants to a hooker and spends the films with make-up smeared all over her face. Yep, that's the type of sophomoric, asinine "humor" in this "film." Do you a favor, avoid this garbage at all costs. You'd be sorely disappointed spending time watching this awful film with the most predictable ending in film history. I cannot stress enough how poorly written this script is.
