Slacker Noah Jonah Hill agrees to watch a trio of local kids

Slacker Noah (Jonah Hill) agrees to watch a trio of local kids. It does not go well. One-time Malick-alike David Gordon Green continues to nail his colours to a lowbrow mast, here recreating the escalating chaos of his Pineapple Express with younger protagonists.

Drugs are still involved, though, and plenty of F-bombs. The results are fitfully funny – Hill is a solid deadpan anchor for the mayhem, and the brats aren’t too bratty. But most of the set-pieces are more slapdash than slapstick, mirroring a level of ambition that’s as low as Noah’s.
