To qualify as this trope, the casting is as important as the plot. A primary factor in ActionHeroBabysitter is to see the actor in an unusual (for them) and often humorous situation. The specific details of the character are often less important than just the fact that they are a {{Badass}} or ActionHero, because that is what the actor invariably plays. This is similar to PlayingAgainstType, but instead of having the actor play someone unlike what they normally play, they play their regular character type but in an unusual situation. However, while the bulk of the movie will focus on domestic hijinks, there will often be at least a few action scenes, especially at the conclusion of the movie.
