Jonah Hill's The Sitter Trailer: New Hollywood Myth: Profanity Magically Transforms Something Unfunny into Something Funny

Below is the trailer for Jonah Hill’s The Sitter, which is basically Adventures with Babysitting minus Thor, plus lots of profanity and jiggly bits. The current trend in Hollywood, it seems, is to take an 80’s movie premise and simply add swear words and nudity. You can thank The Hangover for that. Go ahead. I’ll wait.

There’s really not much else to add here, except what the fuck happened to you, David Gordon Green? How did you go from directing brilliant indie flicks like All the Real Girls, Undertow and Snow Angels to becoming Seth Rogen, Danny McBride, and Jonah Hill’s directing bitch? After Your Highness, I have absolutely no faith in your abilities as a director anymore, and I don’t care how many women Jonah Hill goes down on in the trailer. Also, ew.

Do note, however, that preceding the trailer, skinny Jonah Hill provides an introduction. The guy lost a lot of weight; unfortunately, neither his teeth nor his eyeballs shrank proportionately. It’s jarring, not to mention the weird juxtaposition between Skinny Hill in the Intro and Fat Hill in the trailer.
