Since the early 90s, babysitter films have become a lost art. Films like Adventures in Babysitting, Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead, and several others with the occupation in the title have faded away into 80s obscurity. Until now.
The ever mass-changing Jonah Hill has got a brand new movie to promote, in which he’s finally the lead, and he’s the world’s worst babysitter. Here’s the premise:
A comedy about a college student on suspension who is coaxed into babysitting the kids next door, though he is fully unprepared for the wild night ahead of him.
The beauty is in its simplicity, really. Directed by Eastbound and Down creator David Gordon Green, the film will definitely raise a few flags in terms of “child endangerment”, but that may just work in its favor.
Check out the full red band trailer after the jump, and catch Hill in The Sitter on December 9th.
