NEW YORK — “Mary Poppins,” “Adventures in Baby Sitting” and even “The Hangover” all poked fun at babysitting, but Jonah Hill’s latest film “The Sitter” brings the sitter experience to a new low.
In the film, Jonah plays a college student who is suspended from school and coaxed into babysitting the kids next door, though he is fully unprepared for the wild night ahead of him.
When asked what freshness he brought to the “sitting” genre of films Hill told Blast: “We have the most hardcore, R-Rated, insane babysitting comedy ever made in the world eve.”
Likewise his girlfriend in the film, played by Ari Graynor, promises that the film is “The most unexpected form of babysitting” and “it is more of a great adventure in the city” than just a babysitting film.
Hill added that he loved “working with the kids” on set and prepared for the role by “watching ‘Adventures in Baby Sitting’ and ‘Uncle Buck.'”
Great job, Melissa! Jonah Hill looked totally disinterested, but you held up well. Great poise.
