Watch: Red Band Trailer For 'The Sitter' Is Basically 'Superbad'/'Pineapple Express' With Kids

It seemed earlier this spring everyone's funny bone was severely damaged when no one showed up for the awesomely retarded "Your Highness," David Gordon Green's R-rated fantasy adventure. Maybe it was the swords or perhaps James Franco, but for whatever reason, no one wanted to get with it. Your loss really, but Green is back for another stab at the R-rated apple with "The Sitter."

It seemed earlier this spring everyone's funny bone was severely damaged when no one showed up for the awesomely retarded "Your Highness," David Gordon Green's R-rated fantasy adventure. Maybe it was the swords or perhaps James Franco, but for whatever reason, no one wanted to get with it. Your loss really, but Green is back for another stab at the R-rated apple with "The Sitter."

After a rather way-too-long intro by Jonah Hill and the precocious, swearing youngsters from the movie, we get dropped into the trailer which introduces us to Noah, an unemployed slacker who is quite adept at cunnilingus. He's cajoled into babysitting to earn some cash and suddenly...finds himself on the run from drug dealers? Yeah, that's not really explained well at all, which may be why the laughs in this are surprisingly absent. At least until Sam Rockwell shows up and the last bit with Hill trading lines with the black dude is pretty fucking funny. But overall, "The Sitter" feels almost too similar to "Superbad" or "Pineapple Express," a road trip/journey movie only this time with little kids in tow. But maybe that's just because it's broad trailer #1. Who knows, time will tell and Green did describe the film to us as having an "After Hours" vibe, so there's that.

Max Records, Ari Graynor, J.B. Smoove and Method Man round out the cast and film will hit theaters on December 9th. Don't bring the kids.
