The Sitter is a comic film that revolves around a college student, and during his suspension while living together with his mom, agrees to get a part time job and babysit some kids around the block. After that, all the crazy things come up.
This movie stars Jonah Hill, so it can be predictable what kind of fun we are all in for. It will perhaps evolve into some flick like Get Him to the Greek, although the creators are selling it as a creative duo of Adventures in Babysitting and Superbad, so it might be a pretty different Jonah Hill movie altogether.
The director is David Gordon Green, who was also responsible for The Pineapple Express and Your Highness. With the two films to be shown not too far away from each other in terms of time, we have yet to see if he can be able to wow everyone.
But The Sitter will probably be great. Even if Jonah Hill has not been that great lately, The Sitter may turn things around for Green and Hill. The premise, even if it is a bit kinda weak and differential, can be amusing with Jonah Hill in it.
Being released in the summer, its distributors may have more than stored faith in their film The Sitter than any other company has in some of their movies. It may not be a hit like the summer blockbusters, but it will do fairly well in the theaters and will make people have the fun that they need.
