The big movies out this weekend in theaters are: The Sitter and New Year's Eve.
The Sitter is about a college student who has been suspended and is coaxed into babysitting the children that live next door. He is the world's worst babysitter looking after the world's worst kids and is completely unprepared for the crazy night ahead of him. It stars Jonah Hill, Ari Gaynor, Sam Rockwell, D.W. Moffett, Bruce Altman, Jessica Hecht and Method Man.
From the creator of Valentine's Day, New Year's Eve takes place in New York City on the biggest night of the year. We follow several couples as their lives intertwine of the course of the evening. It stars Josh Duhamel, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jessia Biel, Zac Efron, Halle Berry, Cary Elwes, Alyssa Milano, Common, Seth Meyers, Sarah Paulson, Katherine Heigl, Sofia Vergara, Jon Bon Jovi, Abigail Breslin, Penny Marshall, Hilary Swank, Ludacris, Hector Elizondo, Ryan Seacrest, Lea Michele, Ashton Kutcher and Robert DeNiro.
The Sitter looks like a complete rip-off of Adventures in Babysitting, so I will be skipping that for sure. I will stick with Elisabeth Shue, thank you very much. Both movies this week are getting pretty awful reviews, so my advice would be to go see something that is already in theaters. I am hoping to see My Week With Marilyn and The Descendants this weekend.
Also in limited release are: Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Young Adult, I Melt With You, Knuckle and Ladies vs. Ricky Bahl.
