TOP 50 REVIEWERon 15 August 2015
The box boasts the byline "totally irresponsible edition" and there is a lot to enjoy in this crazy film about a babysitter, Noah, reluctantly looking after three charges and finding himself driving around trying to find money to pay off a psychotic drug dealer. It is always lively, often crude, but likeable thanks to the contributions of Jonah Hill and Sam Rockwell - and all the cast, including the children, but it is the combination of these two that makes the film really quite sparky. The latter plays the dealer to perfection and is surrounded by beefy bodybuilders in skimpy gear, mad bad and dangerous to know, but with a likeable streak and an unreliable dress sense ... Both he and Hill reveal facets other actors don't reach in this kind of material. If the film seems to indulge in certain stereotyping both in racial and sexual terms, these are neatly subverted so that its vulgar, raucous heart emerges as being in the right place, without being too politically correct. The children themselves all have issues, but their wild adventure with Noah helps all three, and it really is well judged for a light 80 minutes of mayhem. It isn't remotely convincing, but as the implausibilities are piled on you don't really care - it can't be too outlandish, really.

I know the majority of the film is predictable, dare I say cliché, but the ride was very enjoyable. That is, after-all, the nature of the comedy genre. How often do I go see a comedy for its intricate storyline, radical character development or enigmatic themes? Close to never, honestly, and so with that reasoning why not go balls-out? Jonah Hill is a very likable character in the film with an understandable ploy. It lacks the in-your-face violence of director previous film "Pineapple Express", but it is definitely hilarious, no doubt about that. The kids are very well played, and thankfully come out as pretty decent characters. Thankfully nowhere near as annoying as the duo of the "Are We There Yet?" films. It's definitely a coming-of-age film that may not be a classic, but it certainly is worth seeing.

This is quite an underrated film. Jonah Hill being the star man in it and the child actors and actresses are hilarious also. A very good film with a lot of laughs.

Enjoyable, easy going comedy. Struggles a little to keep the story going sometimes, but entertaining for a night in. It's not a comedy that I will be talking over to friends in weeks/months to come. I watched it a couple of weeks ago and can't remember the lead character's name. So as I say not that memorable, but I do remember that it made me laugh and that in a few months time I'll dig it out one night to laugh to again.
