The Babysitters - Movie Synopsis & Plot
In this dark comedy from director Davis Ross, high school senior Shirley (newcomer Katherine Waterston) works as a babysitter to save money for college. She has a serious crush on Michael (John Leguizamo), father of two of her regular charges. One night, Michael and Shirley share a forbidden kiss, and he gives her a nice bonus on top of her regular babysitting fee. After Michael’s married buddies find out and want in on the babysitter action, Shirley becomes a high-school madam, arranging dates between her girlfriends and the upstanding family men of their neighborhood with her trusty black book. An innocent flirtation soon spirals into an affair that causes everyone involved to lose more than they bargained for.
It's interesting how the feminist movement of the last forty years, that has taken so much work, heartache and struggle from so many pioneers, has been tossed out the window by the modern teenaged girl. Young women look like ten cents a dance as of late, in their skin tight jeans, midriff revealing tops, gaudy J-Lo hats, Nicole Ritchie sunglasses, excess lip-gloss, big tacky earrings, pointy whore boots and overpriced purses, while smacking gum and yapping incessantly on their cell phones about who like gave them like attitude and like who stole their like boyfriends and what a like bitch they are. It's a Hills watching generation of intellectually stunted Paris Hilton following skanks. Let's hope for their sake that prostitution is legalized within the next ten years so they at least have a trade to fall back on aside from marrying rich.
