What Movies to See Over the Christmas Holiday?

Our Scenery Can Sometimes Surprise You

There were two movies in theaters this weekend that I want to talk about: The Sitter and Young Adult. The Sitter is an Adventures-in-Babysitting-style comedy, where the titular babysitter, played by Jonah Hill, starts off in suburban surroundings. He's charged with taking care of three overprivileged, overindulged children. He starts off watching them in their giant, perfectly decorated home, but, when he gets a call from a girl at a party in Brooklyn, he herds them into their parents’ minivan—complete with New York license plate and one of those little stickers that show you how big the family is—and takes them for R-rated adventures in the gritty city.
