If you like American films, you will probably give this more than two stars. But liking European 'arthouse' films, as I do, it doesn't really compare with the 'anxty', ponderous or more analytical type of films coming out of, for example, France or Spain. Thinking of European films which cover relatationship/emotional/youth/sex matters, from Last Tango in Paris, The Dreamers, Jamon Jamon, or Ozon's 'Swimming Pool', all of these cover some of the issues which The Babysitters touches upon so much better. The dialogue is often quite fast, and the culture quite idiomatic, so again for viewers who like Amercan indie films this might score higher than I have given it. But then I think of 'American Beauty', which scores so highly for me (5 star plus) on story line, acting, characterisation, everything. This film is interesting, perhaps, but rather thin. The '18' rating is simply for the mature male/young girl issue, and fair enough there is only one scene of any nudity; it is certainly not a gratuitous film.
