Before Jonah Hill slimmed down, he starred in The Sitter, out this December. The premise is Hill is a man child who takes a job babysitting at his mother’s insistence. Hijinks ensue, with Hill clashing with little kids and things blowing up.
Ari Graynor, previously of Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist and Date Night, stars alongside Hill. This film is like Pineapple Express meets The Pacifier with Hill juggling potty training gags along with the ire of two drug dealers who are hell bent on hurting him. If the trailer is any indication, this movie will be filled with poop jokes and Hill’s foul mouth.
This movie has the hallmark of a Judd Apatow comedy, an anti-hero stoner character who has to grow up and become a productive member of society. But The Sitter is actually directed by David Gordon Green and also stars Method Man. No doubt Hill’s character will be forced to grow up in the process of trying to care for and protect his three charges from gun shots and malnutrition.
This movie seems to be pretty ordinary as far as stoner comedies go. I’d honestly rather save my money and just re-watch Superbad.
