Video Review

The Crazysitter

MPAA Rating: PG-13

Details Movie Rated: PG-13; Genre: Comedy; With: Ed Begley Jr. and Beverly D'Angelo

Beverly D'Angelo plays a belching, farting ex-con hired to nanny a pair of spoiled rich kids in The Crazysitter. While their parents are away, this enterprising anti-Poppins plots to peddle the brats on the black market. The resulting kids-versus-bad-guys romp has inspired video-box comparisons to Home Alone and Mrs. Doubtfire. But these kids are no Macaulay Culkins, D'Angelo's no Robin Williams, and this lowbrow lark is not the kind of thing you'd pay to see in a theater. It's a bad enough bargain on video. C-
