Noah, is not your typical entertain-the-kids-no-matter-how-boring-it-is kind of sitter. He’s reluctant to take a sitting gig; he’d rather, well, be doing anything else, especially if it involves slacking. When Noah is watching the neighbor’s kid he gets a booty call from his girlfriend in the city. To hook up with her, Noah takes to the streets, but his urban adventure spins out of control as he finds himself on the run from a maniacal drug lord. —IMDb
David Gordon Green (born 9 April 1975) is an American filmmaker.
His films, which are usually coming-of-age tales set in small rural towns, have been categorized as belonging to the Southern Gothic tradition. Green’s dialog often has an obtuse, semi-poetic quality.
While in university, he made the two short films, Pleasant Grove and Physical Pinball, at the North Carolina School of the Arts prior to his feature film debut in 2000, the critically-acclaimed George Washington, which he both wrote and directed. He followed that in 2003 with All the Real Girls and Undertow in 2004. In 2007, Snow Angels, his first film created from a screenplay rather than his own writing, was adapted from a Stewart O’Nan novel. The film debuted at Sundance in January 2007 and stars Sam Rockwell and Kate Beckinsale. It was released by Warner Independent Pictures.
Green was set to direct a film version of the John Kennedy Toole novel… read more
One star for the soundtrack, one star for Sam Rockwell. "Stop staring at me with those gorgeous eyes."
It has really nice messages when he tries to help the kids. Good comedy. Jonah Hill does a good job.
Nice Surprise. Unfocused and a lot of the humor was easy but even in his goofier movies Green brings some humanity to everything. There's a handful of touching scenes that feel like they belong in a stronger film. Jonah Hill in all seriousness is really unique presence rattling off all kinds of non pc jokes but never at the expense of this underdog quality he has. Passes the nothing on at 2 am test.
