Sitter Movie Reviews
User reviews on Sitter
I really thought this film is going to be awesome and I was looking forward seeing it, however I was disappointed because it sucked big time. There are not enough laughs in this film and for every laugh you have to sit through long minutes pointless scenes that are really boring. The only good thing about this film was Noah Hill who played his character very well and I hope he will get better films in the future. The jokes in this film were racist and offensive to almost everyone. Do not take your kids to see this film because it is definitely only for adults and it did not feel right that they had kid actors in this film. Overall, do not see this film, it sucked.
This is a comedy about a college student who agrees to sit the kids next door and gets himself in trouble while doing so, the film is directed by David Gordon Green and stars Jonah Hill, Ari Graynor and Sam Rockwell. I kind of liked this comedy, it was pretty funny and I really like Jonah Hill, however I do not think this film is worth watching in the theaters and you will be better off renting it when it comes out on DVD. While I was watching the film it is fun and I enjoyed it, however I feel that the film could have been so much better and funnier, there was something missing but I am not exactly sure what. I thought Jonah Hill did a really good job in this film, the guy is talented and I can not wait until everybody else sees that. Overall, this film was mediocre but Hill definitely impressed me with his performance.
I absolutely hated this film and I do not recommend seeing it in the theaters because it is incredibly stupid and offensive. I am so tired of films like this one, I wish they just stop releasing this junk in the theaters. The film is so unoriginal and tiring, there are so many scenes that have been done million times before (like the one with a white guy entering a bar which is predominately black). The film has disgusting jokes that involve pee jokes, poo jokes and sex jokes as well as jokes that pretty much offend everybody. Overall, I would avoid this film at all costs because it is truly bad and disgusting.
If you've been dreaming of a modern day remake of Adventures In Babysitting with gross out humor and Jonah Hill, today is your lucky day. Me, I'm still waiting for Elizabeth Shue to make a comeback. The Sitter is just another in a long string of recent films that think throwing curse words and piss jokes out will make a tired premise more interesting.
Hill plays Noah, a suspended college student put in charge of three young neighbors by his mom. When his girlfriend asks him to go get cocaine from a drug dealer, he takes the three kids on a crazy drive around New York. The kids, as you have to have in most films of this kind, have their own issues. Kids used to be cute, now they're just as crazy as the adults. I just don't find that kind of thing funny. The supposed lessons all of these people learn also ring false.
Director David Gordon Green started making indie dramas, and has moved on to films like Pineapple Express and Your Highness. Green seems to combine broad comedy with realism, but only when it comes to the violence in this film. It's a really off putting combination. It would be helped if the film was funnier, but it's not.
