Jonah Hill's latest comedy offering appears far removed from the humour of his previous performances.

[Highly rated reviewer]Absolute stunner. Not since Adventures in Babysitting has this under exploited genre seen such a classic.
OK, its not subtle and its often downright rude but I defy you not to laugh at some of the plot tales experienced here. If you have ever rooted for the under dog, been overtaken by events or just had bad things occur when you are trying to do the right thing, this will appeal to you.
I wish every week had a film like this in it.

Simply DreadfulBy Scooby51 (2 reviews) from Nottingham , 14 Nov 2013I have watched a lot of films over the years, and I mean a lot...and this is probably the worst I have ever seen. One word...dreadful!
Not a good film at all... don't bother!By snash123 (71 reviews) , 19 Oct 2013I must say this film wasn't at all funny. Jonah Hill is a very talented actor but even he couldn't make this film funny as hard as he tried. The characters were very plastic and not at all convincing in their roles and the storyline really is a flashback to the 80's films involving babysitters and their exploits over the night - i. e. its already be done and best left alone and forgotten as just not funny!
Worst everBy Fangorn (4 reviews) , 28 Sep 2013Only watched 30 seconds. How this film rates a 15 certificate is beyond me. If the rest of the film follows the opening in any way it is not even worth watching.
Swearing and ViolenceBy a customer , 28 Jun 2013It wasn't very funny, but quite bold which I think is nice. Lots of swearing and violence - just what you need for a chilled-out night in.
Adventures in BabysittingBy manonfireuk (407 reviews) from Liverpool , 28 May 2013The basic storyline reminded me of a really naff family movie from the 80's I watched as a kid called Adventures in Babysitting only this one is some what funnier and ruder. In terms of comedy value, this sits midway between the director's worst and best. It's a lot funnier than Your Highness (which was not funny at all!) but nowhere near as funny as Pineapple Express which is one of my favourite comedies from recent years. It provides enough laughs to keep you entertained but not one that is worht going back to.
