Comedy
Jonah Hill, riding high on his excellent Moneyball performance, goes back to Superbad mode for this one as Noah, a slacker stuck baby-sitting some scary kids for the evening. The film has drawn comparisons to Adventures in Babysitting, the ’80s cult classic starring a super-hot Elisabeth Shue and Penelope Ann Miller. Director David Gordon Green also gave us medieval farce Your Highness, one of the year’s biggest disappointments, if not the biggest. Now comes this, Green’s third comedy feature in a row after starting his career with evocative, effective dramas like All the Real Girls and George Washington. While The Sitter represents an improvement over Your Highness, it’s still not worth your time. Hill’s shtick gets tired quickly.
