2011 Guide Analysis: "On the surface this sounds like a pointless unofficial remake of 80's classic "Adventures in Babysitting". Beneath that surface though we get...exactly that it seems. Despite success with "Pineapple Express" and the upcoming and far more fun looking "Your Highness", David Gordon Green's second directorial effort for the year generally has little buzz surrounding it. Reviews of the script are fairly mixed with one of the kid characters said to generate most of the film's laughs. Then again one would expect a lot of improvisation on a film like this, so that could change. For now it awaits a killer trailer to really get it out there in people's mindsets."
