Now is the time, surely, for David Gordon Green to return to the arthouse Terrence Malick persona that first won us over a decade ago.

David Gordon Green's latest beer-soakage comedy contains one, just one, reminder of what made him a hugely promising independent filmmaker a decade ago.

Nowhere near as funny as it ought to be and is badly let down by some dodgy racial stereotyping.

Hill's streetwise-nerd shtick ensures that The Sitter is not without chuckles. They just don't all belong in the same film.

Not Superbad, just quite bad.

A noisy, unfocused, frequently annoying and intermittently offensive slapstick misfire.

At 81 mins, The Sitter literally and figuratively falls short, flirting sporadically with real laughs but confining itself largely to bland fish-outof-water gags and romcom clichés.

Warning! Though The Sitter obliges with all the elements crowd-pleasing filmmakers think they need these days-oral sex, flatulence, drugs, car smash-ups, guns 'n violence, hints of S&M, twisted adolescents-it's a sweet-natured film in disguise.

R-rated rot
December 17, 2011
Profane and for grownups only, 'The Sitter' is a raunchy fish-out-of-water story that's hilarious at times. Don't let the title fool you: This is extremely R-rated, as well it should be, and certainly isn't appropriate for children.

...a distressingly tedious piece of work that all-too-often substitutes freneticism for laughs...

The Sitter is frightfully spare on full-bodied laughs.

An oddly frantic and mostly unfunny mess.

Despite its deficiencies -- and they are many -- The Sitter is a dumb comedy made by smart people who know how to make you have fun despite what might be in your best interests.

Moneyball may be the movie that finally nabs Hill a nomination, but it's The Sitter that lets him knock one out of the comedy park.

Jonah Hill's career takes a big step backward

It does not care for your soft comedy.

The Sitter wants to have its urinal cake and eat it too, pushing the envelope of taste one minute and then delivering maudlin little life lessons the next.
December 13, 2011
It ain't PC, but with Hill's timing and Bender's Kardashian act, it's a stoner's delight.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
December 11, 2011
A truly odious and repugnant comedy, the first I can remember in which I spent the entire running time rooting for the hero to get arrested.
