Whether a comedian or action star, most male actors have had low points in their careers where they end up babysitting on the big screen. The Pacifier, Daddy Day Care, and Kindergarten Cop all epitomize these low points. In his latest film The Sitter, Jonah Hill decides to join the club and go down this same sad path as many actors before him have gone.
