Parent of a 9, 11, 14, and 14 year old Written bynew guy02 December 9, 2011

please read my warning

I for one want to see this movie so badly and think it looks hilariously funny but parents with children of any age need to keep in mind that this movie is rated R and though it may have a cute story and cute kids 'a little girl is just too adorable for words' that it will certanly not be a wise choice for a family outing to the movies unless you have an older family

Not for kids (or anyone for that matter)

This movie spends a lot of time promoting teen sex, drugs, homosexuality, violence, disrespect for others property, etc, etc.

The beginning of the movie isn't too bad, definitely not as bad as they make it seem. there is nothing shown. there is no nudity throughout the whole movie. it is ok if your child can handle some inappropriate language.

16 and up.

The Sitter is a average funny comedy movie that is better left for your older teens and parents you need to know that is inappropriate comedy movie the sitter has some intense violence shown and in the beginning of the movie there is one oral sex performed where the girl is moaning but she is fully dress while they doing the act and expect a lot of sex talk throughout the movie also you can expect a lot of constant strong language used and a lot of drinking and drugs used.

Hilarious Comedy That's Appropriate For Young Teens

Adult Written bya parent222 March 4, 2012

it's not that bad

when your 13 you commonly hear that from your friends and even your family members i know that other parents don't want to be bad parents and let them see this stuff but they hear swearing every day and if they don't watch it with you guys they will watch it with thee friends so then you guys wont be able to talk to them about the content in the film

One of Jonah hill's best movies

No sex except for the scene in the beginning language is the biggest issue here but not as bad as Superbad

A movie that gets to much hate!

This movie is a great comedy! It has very positive messages about Family and Homosexuality (one of the kids is gay and is too scared to admit it.) Jonah Hill does an awesome job acting as a babysitter. The movie does have some parts that might be a little too vulgar for anyone under 14. (At the beginning the main character Noah is giving a girl oral sex, but it’s censored and you see nothing.) And the story is about one of the boys stealing a egg with Cocaine in it and breaking it. The main characters have too get the money back, or the main character will be killed, the movie also touches on how you don’t have too be beautiful too have friends. If you’re kids are okay with swearing and some drugs, this movie is almost a must watch.
