Audience Reviews for The Babysitter

A somewhat entertaining, but utterly predictable thriller. This movie could have been a lot better, but as is, it's okay.

Super Reviewer

This movie could have had potential if it wasn't a made for TV movie, and if the story wasn't so predictable. I kinda enjoyed it anyway, though.
