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.

    None of it is inherently funny - as evidenced by how many scenes depend for a punchline on Hill swearing at one child or another. show more

    The Sitter's a lazy ramble of a movie that's amusing enough to hold your gaze for 81 minutes while leaving you feeling a little cheated when it's over. show more
