The Babysitters Trailer

The first red band trailer for David Ross' The Babysitters has debuted. Before you jump on us like with Water Lilies, I'm posting this because reviews I've heard (including from SlashFilm) all state things like "[The Babysitters is] a completely refreshing look at a story you've likely heard and seen before." The film is about a 16 year old babysitter in high school who realizes that she can make money by turning her "services" into a call-girl job for married men. This isn't as over-the-top as some may assume, and looks like a fairly good indie movie, so give it a shot. Be aware - this is a red band trailer!

Thanks to IGN for debuting this trailer. You can read a few more reviews over at Rotten Tomatoes or SlashFilm, not all of which are positive.

The Babysitters is both written and directed by newcomer David Ross. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year and is being released by Peace Arch Entertainment in the US. The Babysitters arrives in limited theaters starting on May 9th.

is it just me, or is hollywood's agenda now to desensitize people to underage sex....

that was a red band???

Mike on Apr 17, 2008


Alex I'd say you got it pretty much correct.

It's like a tamed "Debbie Does Dallas."

I'm surprised it's rated R. This is the type of movie they would want the pre-teens to go see. I wouldn't be shocked if it changed to a PG-13 rating especially with the bad reviews. Pre-teens don't read reviews. They just spend their parents money.

John Leguizamo went on conan last week, i think it was, talking about this film but i don't remember them showing a clip of the film. Nice to see the trailer, but why was this trailer red band? maybe am too desensitized, i dont see nothing wrong with it, maybe the "under age" thing, with the girls having sex.

Actually it looks pretty good. Little over the top though, just a fun Friday night rental. It looks like a thriller. Last line cracks me up though, "We all have secret lives. THIS IS MY BABYSITTING SERVICE." :), just made me smile for some reason. But why the hell was this redband? Underage references I guess.

Ryan on Apr 17, 2008


This looks like complete garbage, Not to mention leguizamos in it. The fact that they even tried making it serious makes it look foolish. Only film that i liked leguizamo in was Spawn and that was even corny. Sorry guys but this one just doesnt make the grade for me....

Another BRICK wannabe movie. I am really getting tired of these retarded warped out teen coming of age movies.

Vega Bro on Apr 17, 2008


Also, the whole thesis behind the movie looks really stupid: Wow, babysitting is metaphore for prostitution!? Good job subtle independant film director, I would have had no idea, I mean its not like the fucking trailer incorporated it into every single scene or anything. Give me some Uwe Boll and leave this shit sitting on the shelves.

Vega Bro on Apr 17, 2008


I thought at the end, I was going to hear, "On the All New CW, coming this summer".

Ross on Apr 17, 2008


Does anyone Know where I can see this movie? I really want to watch it but since its limited, I feel like I'll never get the chance. John Leguizamo is like my hero!

Saucy on Apr 29, 2008


Saucy, has release dates and theaters now.

Jonathan on May 7, 2008
