Noah, is not your typical entertain-the-kids-no-matter-how-boring-it-is kind of sitter. He's reluctant to take a sitting gig; he'd rather, well, be doing anything else, especially if it involves slacking. When Noah is watching the neighbor's kid he gets a booty call from his girlfriend in the city. To hook up with her, Noah takes to the streets, but his urban adventure spins out of control as he finds himself on the run from a maniacal drug lord.

The Sitter (2011)

Too frequently mistakes crass for clever to be as stealthily wholesome and likable as it wants to be. The problem is that the one or two genuinely humanizing moments do not counterweight the litany of sociopathy and misguided racism surrounding them. Mallrats you are not.
