AUDIENCE SCORE
User Ratings: 3,707
Rating: 2.5/5 -- Until it crosses a shadowy line dividing serious comedy from distasteful exploitation, The Babysitters has the makings of an incisive satire of greed and lust in suburbia.
New York Times
May 9, 2008
Rating: B -- Their customers are awkward enough that we're able to believe the girls are in control, or at least aware that they're the highlight of the men's week. Full Review
I.E. Weekly
May 15, 2008
Rating: 2/5 -- Like the pilot for an awful, misguided joint venture between FX and the CW. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- You can see the potential in this off-kilter coming-of-age story, and it's a pity it never quite adds up.

Rating: 2.5/4 -- David Ross's stylishly tawdry black comedy fits neatly between Heathers and American Beauty. The Babysitters Club this ain't. Full Review
TV Guide
May 9, 2008
Rating: 2/4 -- Although the film is pitched as dark comedy, there's nothing very funny about the sexualization of teenagers.
Newark Star-Ledger

It's bad enough that writer-director David Ross indulges in the very perverse kind of Lolita-tinged titillation the film pretends to lament, but then he ties everything up with an oh-well shrug. Full Review

Product Description:

In this dark comedy, Shirley Lyner (Katherine Waterston) may be just 16 years old, but she's smart. However, instead of just using her intelligence to get into college, she's started her own business that may help pay her way through school. She discovers that babysitters can make more money entertaining horny fathers than just watching kids, and soon she has a group of seductive teens in her employ. But even though Shirley is mature for her age, she soon realizes that her business may be too much for her to handle. John Leguizamo stars as the first father to sample Shirley's wares, and SEX AND THE CITY's Cynthia Nixon plays Shirley's mother.
