QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: A college dropout agrees to babysit three kids, but finds them more than a handful as the evening quickly gets out of control.
PLOT:
Noah Griffith (JONAH HILL) is a college dropout who agrees to babysit another family's three kids so that his divorced mom can go out on a date. The kids are 13-year-old Slater (MAX RECORDS), an overly sensitive and timid homebody teen; his younger sister Blithe (LANDRY BENDER) who fancies herself an adult and thus wears too much makeup, has a sassy attitude and listens to hard core rap music; and Rodrigo (KEVIN HERNANDEZ), their adopted sibling from El Salvador who has a weak bladder but a penchant for blowing up toilets with cherry bombs.

Once Noah meets them, he realizes babysitting won't be as easy as he thought, but things get more complicated when his girlfriend, Marisa (ARI GRAYNOR), calls and promises to have sex with him if he'll pick up some cocaine for her from drug dealer Karl (SAM ROCKWELL). He agrees, and what follows is a night of mishaps and increasing complications, as well as a run-in with his former college classmate, Roxanne (KYLIE BUNBURY), who has a thing for him.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Those who are fans of Hill and/or raunchy comedies might find it intriguing.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For crude and sexual content, pervasive language, drug material and some violence.
CAST AS ROLE MODELS:
Considering what occurs in the film, few if any parents would consider any of the main characters as good role models for kids.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
