The Sitter

(R) ★★☆☆☆

This film takes us on mildly funny adventures in extreme baby-sitting. Noah’s (Jonah Hill) not-really-girlfriend’s (Ari Graynor) interest in cocaine sends him on a dangerous all-night mission with three kids in tow. The oldest is an anxious wet blanket; the adopted El Salvadoran is a pyromaniac; and the youngest is a female preteen, enough said. These kids and their overbearing insecurities need Noah’s tough love. Bit of a bumper-car approach to yet another of today’s crude comedies, but Hill can carry those.

To the right in an 800-square-foot studio, dancers will learn krumping, popping, hip-hop, breaking and DJing from world-renowned choreographers. During open session, dancers will practice at their leisure in a second studio.
