Would you trust foul-mouthed, girl-chasing Jonah Hill with your kids? That’s the focal point of “The Sitter,” the “Superbad” star’s newest R-rated comedy. In the film, Hill is pressed into babysitting duties with a trio of attitude-ridden kids, and is soon embroiled in one misadventure after another.
The man behind the madness is David Gordon Green, the “George Washington” auteur who delivered “Pineapple Express” and “Your Highness” to the stoner crowd and is now going for rauch-inspired laughs (before he heads to the horror genre). To get an insider’s take on “The Sitter,” we recruited Green for our “Call-In Commentary” series where filmmakers provide narration to their movie trailer. In the video below, hear Green describe the inspirations for the film, how the cast improvised and more. “The Sitter” hits theaters today.
