A cool mix of sci-fi and comedy. Of course, nothing much about the story, I even predicted the twist. But all the cool stuff are fun and entertaining. Stiller-Hill-Vaughn-Ayoade is not bad at all.

The Watch was GARBAGE! The movie trailer looked funny so I think that's what made me want to see it in the 1st place.I guess I should've known it was going to suck when it had 2 of my least favorite actors (Vince Vaughn & Ben Stiller) Jonah Hill was hilarious though & the funniest actor in this piece of crap.There were about 3-4 funny scenes which I can't even remember at all so I guess that tells you how much I think about The Watch.Most of the humor felt forced & I love potty humor & everything but that's all this movie was.I sat through it all just waiting for it to be over & the thing that amazed me most is that I didn't fall asleep 1 time

Maybe it's because my expectations were rather low, but I ended up liking The Watch more than I expected. While the film dragged and had its share of stupid running gags - there were some genuine times I had a great laugh. Great cameos from the likes of R. Lee Ermey and an uncredited Billy Crudup help move things along. While he may have been overshadowed by the bigger names - Richard Ayoade had the best lines (and the best performance) and I hope to see more of him in the future. The story has a bit too many cliches and too-predictable twists - but, for a comedy, I would still recommend it in a pinch.

I expected this to not be good, but then some people told me it was hilarious. So I went in with an open mind. It wasn't bad. It wasn't great, but it wasn't bad. I was very excited to see Ayoade in a Major Feature film. Not a familiar face to most, but he is from a Birtish sitcom "The I.T. Crowd". I am disappointed that his role in the movie was overshadowed by the other characters. Hopefuly he gets another chance. I feel like this movie was a break for the cast. It didn't require much effort, and i feel the actors took advantage f that. It was flat and uninspired. Still worth a watch.

The Watch review

Evan (Stiller), Bob (Vaughn), Franklin (Hill), and Jamarcus (Ayoade) are neighbors who form a neighborhood watch after the death of an employee at Costco. The branding for Tide was overkill, characters too unbelievable (especially the dumb cop trying to revive his dead partner wherein Bob explains the likelihood of survival after his hearts been removed/Franklin swearing at his mom, etc). The movie reminded this critic of a a mixed poor version Ghostbusters, lousy The Burbs and weaker Super 8. Vulgar and amateurish screenplay in which the direction turns to gross out humor and science fiction was just ludicrous. Lacks appropriate character development for the other leads. It's comical moments was bland and situations were just baffling. On the positive side, the special effects and ...
