It tries to be a fresh and edgy mix of fantasy and teen comedy, as well as kick-start a franchise, but for the most part it falls flat. Its plot is convoluted, derivative and unoriginal. Its performances are bland (except Tom Felton's villainous role). And its visuals, while creative and imaginative, look cheap. Children will be entertained, but everyone else probably won't.
Tom Felton is amazing as the villain, a wonderful balance of creepy and entertaining. The movie feels like the beginning of a franchise with how it immerses you into the underground world of monster hunters, the brilliant young kids who are saving the day, as well as the manual of monster history (reminiscent of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy). I was engaged the entire time and once it was finished I immediately wanted to watch a sequel to it to see what happens next.
I like A Babysitter's Guide to Monster Hunting because it has an interesting story line, is very funny and is perfect to watch for Halloween.
This hilarious movie is about how a girl is attacked by monsters when in her bed sleeping. The movie fast forwards to when she is older and wants to go to a party with her friend because her crush is at the party. Her mom tells her that she's babysitting which means she can't go to the party. She babysits and sees the same monsters taking the kid that she's babysitting. She calls for help until a white haired girl, named Liz (Oona Laurence), who is about her same age, helps her.
This is a good quality film with a very talented cast. Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy from Harry Potter) portrayal as The Grand Guignol is superb. My favorite part is when Liz (the white hair girl), tries trading with a monster and the monster takes the item instead of trading and runs into the ball pit. My favorite actor is Ian Ho who plays Jacob, because he is very funny.
The moral of this movie is to never give up. The babysitter never gives up in finding the little boy.
I give A Babysitter's Guide to Monster Hunting 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to ages 6 to18, plus adults can enjoy this fantastic movie with their children as well. A Babysitter's Guide to Monster Hunting is available now on Netflix.

quite fun kid/teen movie, easy to watch
Great family Halloween movie. Hope there will be more to come maybe a series.
this movie was amazing, before it i hadn't known about the books but i am definitely going to be reading them. super funny, got me right into the halloween spirit.
Super cute family movie with some great female heroines and an entertaining appearance by Tom Felton, an OG villain from the HP franchise.
Made for children story of a Boogeyman after gifted children to create his monster army and the babysitters who band together to save the little ones.
2 out of 5 stars. Babysitters Guide to Monster Hunting is a family fantasy film that kids will be entertained with this while the adults may find it a snoozefest. The plot is weird about a babysitters group who work underground to hunting monsters that try to give kids bad dreams or stalking kids at night. The direction and acting is cheesy. Cheesy dialogue. It feels like something you may catch on a saturday morning on a nickolodeon channel. The visual effects are cheap. The performances are eh. Adults may want to skip this one. While the humor is aiming for the younger audiences.
More substanceless junk from Netflix. Anything with Babysitters in the title on this channel is a waste of time.
