Had I known before hand that David Gordon Green, the man behind my least favorite film of 2011, Your Highness was also responsible for The Sitter then I’d have saved myself 81 minutes.
There is very little in this film worth savouring and the highlight for me was hearing Slick Rick’s Children's Story playing over the titles. From there it was all down hill.
The film stars permo-slacker Jonah Hill as Noah, a College dropout who is forced to babysit three caricatures of children so that his long suffering mother can go on a date with a surgeon. It is unfortunate for Hill that the release of this film coincides with his Best Supporting Actor nomination at the Oscars for Moneyball as when we should be reminded of that time a few months ago where we began to believe there was more to him as an actor than wearing baggy T-Shirts while wise-cracking we are presented with him playing a baggy T-Shirt wearing, wise-cracker.
