Your Kids Just Home from College: The Sitter
R-Rated comedies like Bridesmaids or The Hangover Part II were a big trend in the summer, having been released practically on top of each other. So it was smart for The Sitter to wait it out until the end of the year, where there are so many “worthy” flicks coming out that fans of cursing, casual drug use, and all-around mayhem are dying for a movie of their own. But while The Sitterdescribed by the L Magazine as Adventures in Babysitting meets After Hours — is certainly filthy, it also comes from arthouse director David Gordon Green (George Washington, Snow Angels), so there is surprisingly good filmmaking behind all the f-bombs.

Associate Editor Marisa LaScala joined Westchester magazine in 2003, and ever since she's blown every paycheck at the Greenburgh Multiplex. She also staunchly defends Richard Kelly, doesn't mind spoiling the endings of trashy movies you're curious about but don't want to pay to see, wishes the Hold Steady would come back and rock out Westchester, misses Arrested Development more than anyone can imagine, and still watches cartoons and Saturday Night Live. You can find more of her cultural criticism at, where she is a staff writer.
