Plot Summary

Noah Griffith (Jonah Hill) is stuck in a rut; he's been kicked out of college, and his self-absorbed girlfriend, Marisa (Ari Graynor), treats him poorly. All Noah wants to do these days is watch TV, but as a favor to his mother, he agrees to baby-sit a neighbor's three freakish children: Slater (Max Records), Blithe (Landry Bender) and Rodrigo (Kevin Hernandez). Coerced to score some drugs for Marisa in exchange for sex, Noah must take the terrible trio along on a wild odyssey through New York.

    Hill shows less snark and agitation than usual here, and the restraint serves him well. show more
