The Sitter runs under an hour and a half, but sitting in a dark theater, forced to watch it, you feel that hours of your life are slipping by.

It's offensive, yes; but it doesn't offend me as a humorist, it offends me as an individual with an I.Q. in the triple digits.

The Sitter is mediocrity at its finest; too boring to hate and too forgettable to get angry about. Save your money and rewatch Uncle Buck instead.

Anyone expecting The Sitter to be an especially memorable trip to the theater may just want to give their own babysitter the night off and stay home with the kids.

The Sitter is a mess because of a lot of things, but most of the blame should be focused on a lazy script that could have been written in a single afternoon.

An interesting example of the trailer being better than the film, not because it gave away all the good scenes, but because the scenes are only funny in a vacuum.

The Sitter is a pretty funny, absurdist 'worst babysitter ever' story that gives glimpses of serious commentary disguised by dick jokes and the David Gordon Green Pineapple Express & Your Highness ethos - without ever surpassing it's predecessors.

Hill has a natural talent for making any situation funny with his deadpan humor, but in The Sitter it only goes so far.

I'm a child of the 80s, as is Green. So his raunchy homage to Adventures in Babysitting did not go without notice. Unfortunately, it did not go with much laughter either.

A crass, but sweet nod to Uncle Buck, flavored with funny characters, a few sparks of drama, and a few too many cliches.

I don't think I'm too demanding. All I ask for in a comedy is that it be funny. And in "The Sitter," too often gross-outs and foul language substitute for humor.

I'm starting to wonder, truly and sincerely, if [director and former indie wunderkind] David Gordon Green is suffering from one of those brain tumors that radically alters one's personality...

The movie is funny right from the start, tells its story economically and never comes close to wearing out its welcome.

One of those films for brainless nerds which Hollywood insists on churning out.

81 joyless minutes.

Hugely dislikable...

This is yet another David Gordon Green comedy that fails to tap into its dark, noirish potential.

The Sitter is a lazy, write-by-numbers dramatic comedy that even has nauseating time for picking up a foxy lady.
