A waste. Watch the simular themed Adventures in Babysitting and you'll see a far better movie and get a lot more entertainment value and enjoyment.

Trailer/commercial showed all the best bits. Didn't think the movie was that funny. Punchlines were not that great either. Save your 1.5 hours for a different flick.

Did they have to show Jonah Hill naked? Was that important to the film? Gross.

This is a Jonah Hill movie. So, with that in mind. I liked the movie. It's not my kind of humor, but it's funny. I like Noah's message to the kids.

Watched about 10mins of it until I realised it was garbage!

Skip It – The Sitter (2011) 81 min. Here we have another foul-mouthed “comedy” that is supposed to be funny especially when we see kids behaving terribly. Hollywood is being manipulated by what they think we want to see and it’s not this. I would like to see a smart comedy; I would like real life experiences on film that derive humour. Not this. If you want to see a good babysitter-themed film, go for Adventures in Babysitting (1987) and drop this film.

Remake of Adventures in Babysitting. Very funny.

Terrible. A few cheap laughs, but definitely not worth sitting through. The plot line had potential (for a lovely cheesey Sunday afternoon movie) but it was garbage.
