If you want an easy watching film on prime this is it.
Enjoyable from beginning to end.
Light hearted. Jonah Hill is great in it.

Definitely not one of Jonah Hill's better movies! Mildly amusing but plot-line is weak and the laughs are way to obvious to be funny!

This is a puerile, largely unfunny comedy. One or two lines stand out as immediately quotable and laugh out loud, but overall it's laboured, messy and childish.

I think Jonah Hill is one of the best and funny actors around just now. However this movie is mediocre at best.

Rather lazy "comedy" full of stereotypes (gender and racial), nonsensical plot and rather recycled and rehashed jokes. If you're expecting a belly laugh, you probably won't get it.

On the plus side, it's only an hour and twenty minutes long.

Overall a very disappointing film. The characters are weak and character development is virtually non exsitant. Not really funny save for Jonah Hill's naturally funny personality, laughed twice throughout the whole movie. Did not enjoy and would not recommend.

It made us laugh! Some great lines & Jonah Hill plays that character well! The youngest child is very good too!

Format: DVD
The movie starts out as a bad sex comedy. Jonah Hill stars as Noah Griffith, a slightly nerdy, obese young adult who peddles a bicycle. In the opening scene he is performing oral services for a pretty blond girl (Ari Graynor) who believes fat guys do it best, however she won't return the favor as she claims she has a touch of food poisoning. She is a coke slut loved by Noah.

Mom (Jessica Hecht) coerces Noah into babysitting for the neighbor (Erin Daniels). The kids are a 13 year old boy with responsibility issues, an eight year old girl going on 16, and an adopted kid from El Salvador who acts like he is part of a cartel. Noah is irresponsible as this turns into an "Adventures in Babysitting" adult comedy as he attempts to score some cocaine for his "girlfriend" who has promised him real sex in return.

As I watched the movie for the first time, I had the feeling I have seen this before. Predictable, trite, and mostly unfunny. A "me-too" comedy. A lower tier rental at best. Go watch Harold and Kumar instead.

F-bomb, sex talk, no nudity
