The Babysitters (2007)

Film details


Drama. Honours student Shirley works as a babysitter to save money for college. She has a serious crush on Michael, father of Adam and Mikey, two of her regular charges. Michael has watched his formerly fun-loving wife, Gail, become a boring soccer mom, and he yearns for the free-wheeling days when he had no family responsibilities to tie him down. One night, Michael and Shirley share a furtive kiss, and he gives her a nice tip on top of her regular fee. Soon they can't hold back their feelings and initiate a hot and heavy romance, using her sitter shifts as their cover.
