 IMDB: 5.7

I will start this out with the facts:

  • 1) This movie wasn’t very good
  • 2) Vince Vaughn makes most everything suck
  • 3) I only watched this movie because I love Ben Stiller and Richard Ayoade

That said, I’ll say it wasn’t TERRIBLE.

The Watch is about Evan, a Costco manager, getting together a neighborhood watch after his friend and employee gets not just murdered, but skinned by his murderer. The only 3 guys that show up are Bob, Franklin, and Jamarcus. Bob’s the classic mid-life-crisis suburbanite dad, Franklin is the type of guy that probably has plans for when the zombies attack, and Jamarcus is just a dorky British guy that Evan wants to be his first black friend to go along with his white, Asian, and Hispanic friends.

They soon discover that the killer is… aliens!

The movie has a good few laughs, a decent amount of physical comedy, and isn’t a TOTAL waste of time. That said… it’s just not good.

I hoped it would be hilarious since Ben Stiller is hilarious and Richard Ayoade is hilarious but… it just wasn’t. It was amusing, but not that funny.

My Rating: 4/10
