WORST. BABYSITTER. EVER.
Slacker Noah Griffith (Jonah Hill) is talked into babysitting three kids for a friend of his mom’s, but the night turns into a wild adventure. The director of Pineapple Express (2008) delivers another mad romp, an Adventures in Babysitting (1987) for a new decade. It’s a very busy film, with drug deals, chases, a romance and three kids who are all annoying in different ways. Lively, with one or two funny scenes, but exhausting. A lack of likable characters leads to indifference.
2011-U.S. 81 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by David Gordon Green. Cast: Jonah Hill (Noah Griffith), Max Records (Slater Pedulla), Ari Graynor (Marisa Lewis), J.B. Smoove, Sam Rockwell, Landry Bender.
