  1. The premise is out of '70s porn, and so is the overbroad satire and almost total lack of conviction.
  2. Reviewed by: Ed Gonzalez

    Ultimately, the film's view of female self-loathing and girl-on-girl exploitation is woefully reductive and painful.
  3. Shirley’s instant metamorphosis from insecure high school student to ruthless madam is ludicrous in spite of the best efforts of the talented Ms. Waterston to convince you otherwise. The Babysitters has the increasingly jerky momentum of a film that was butchered in the cutting room, sacrificing continuity and character development to whip the plot forward.
  4. 25
    I'd call it a depressing soft-core porn flick, but that overstates its titillation factor. Mainly it's just icky.
  5. 0
    A special place in purgatory must be reserved for John Leguizamo, who produced and stars in The Babysitters, a loathsome slice of exploitation at its most cynical and crass.

    This was the greatest movie i have ever seen, it needs a squeal though as it ended suddenly and left me wishing there was more. Does she go back to the work. Doesn't she. I have lost sleep over this. Full Review »
