The SitterOn DVD and Blu-ray, comedy movie The Sitter is a Totally Irresponsible Edition, befitting the film’s “Worst. Babysitter. Ever” tag line.

The Sitter stars Jonah Hall (Moneyball) as … you guessed it, the worst babysitter ever. Hill plays Noah, a suburban slacker who’s watching his neighbor’s kids when he gets a booty call from his girlfriend in the city. Of course he heads right over — and takes the kids with him. But Noah’s urban adventure gets out of control when he finds himself on the run from a drug lord.

Ari Graynor (What’s Your Number?) and Sam Rockwell (Cowboys & Aliens) also star in the movie, which was directed by David Gordon Greene (helmer of the pretty disastrous Your Highness) and executive produced by Hill.

Although it was liked better by audiences than critics (the movie was called “hughly dislikable” by the U.K. Observer critic Philip French), R-rated The Sitter didn’t get too much love at the box office, grossing $30 million in wide release in theaters.
