The Babysitter is a 2008 short comedy film written and directed by David H. Steinberg.[1]


Allison (Brie Larson) is an 18 year-old babysitter who is called by the Jones family. She arrives and discovers with shock that their son is Jimmy (Josh Cooke), who's in his 20s.[2] Allison flatly refuses the job but is offered an extra $100 by Mr. Jones (John Kapelos). She hesitantly agrees. After the parents leave, Jimmy offers Allison a drink. They gradually get intoxicated and have sex. Shortly after, Jimmy's parents arrive and discover the two in bed. Mrs. Jones (Molly Hagan) kicks Allison out without paying her. It is later revealed that Mr. Jones was actually a pimp and masquerading as Jimmy's father. The film ends with a baffled Allison demanding her money outside the front door.
