Product Description

At 17, high-school junior Shirley Lyner is thinking about college but is also running a babysitting service with extras. She provides teen call girls to the dads of young children. It started when she looked after the kids of Michael. A cup of coffee on the way home from his house, a night visit to a train yard, and one thing leads to another. Shirley can be ruthless, and tension builds when some of the clients take the girls to a mountain cabin and brings drugs. Then, one of the girls tries to freelance.....

4.0 out of 5 stars The Babysitters [DVD 2007] 10 Dec 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not a film that will go down in the annals of history as a classic but rather an amusing way to waste a couple of hours in front of the fire. Not overtly sexy the film is a humourous depiction of the hidden secret desires that must surely burn in many fathers of teenagers when confronted with their daughter's extremely attractive friends.
Despite being an example of the ingenuity of youth to make money in order to go to college this is perhaps not a socially accepted way to achieve the aim - and certainly not what you would want your own daughter to do!

4.0 out of 5 stars Can I give you a lift home? 9 Jan 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Very enjoyable film with a big production feel about it. Surprisingly great performances by the 'babysitters' displaying how insecure, young women become very empowered and confident when they are desired and loved. And rewarded. Don't expect titillation or soft porn; it's more a comedy/love story. Very entertaining!

5.0 out of 5 stars not a comedy 2 Feb 2011
By cartoon
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
an excellent little film. I guess that the subject matter , teenage girl decides to become a madam and offer her friends meant that this film was never going to be a sucess . But this is no throw away teen comedy and no sex film either, despite the tacky cover. Excellent acting. Katherine Waterston is tip top . But why market this as a soft porn rather than an indy style film ???? Definately more of a Juno rather than a Tinto Brass .

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly intelligent 20 Oct 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was pleasantly surprised by this film. I was expecting soft-porn trash (I was disappointed there!), but it is actually quite a thought-provoking film. A 17 year-old girl is doing babysitting, then gets propositioned by the dad while he is taking her back home. She says yes, and he gives her an extra tip on top of her babysitting fee. Soon she is doing it regularly, and the guy tells his friends, and soon she finds herself as a madam, organising similar "baby-sitting" services provided by her school friends and taking a cut. It becomes quite a business. When one of the girls decides to go it alone in competition, things get very nasty indeed. It's a film about a journey from relative innocence to hard-nosed cynicism in a very short time, and has a lot to say about our society where sex and money rule, and are often linked. The clients are all by definition married with small kids (otherwise the babysitting cover doesn't work), so it's rather a bleak view of married life. A very dark film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Almost 28 May 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not the most original idea, but the trailer looked promising. I certainly would not describe it as "Wickedly funny". It gets its certificate rating of 18 mostly due to its risque theme, there is almost no worthwhile adult scenes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good...but not brilliant. 13 Mar 2013
By Gavin
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.
