Ben Stiller (as Evan), Vince Vaughn (as Bob), Jonah Hill (as Franklin), and Richard Ayoade (as Jamarcus) join forces as the Neighborhood Watch ostensibly to protect their neighborhood from an alien invasion.
They do. Hmmm, that is pretty much the plot. :-)
“The Watch” is rated R and is not for kids. Lots of f-words, and some gore (although not ugly gory….), and blood.
The four actors work really well together, and there are several laugh-out- loud moments, a decent story, an interesting subplot concerning Stiller and his wife, and one major surprise (actually two….errrr, make that three).
Overall, this was a fun movie for the six of us in the theater watching it….not exactly blockbuster territory. ;-) I wonder how much Costco paid for advertising?
