movie: The Watch


Description from IMDB: “Four men who form a neighborhood watch group as a way to get out of their day-to-day family routines find themselves defending the Earth from an alien invasion.”

We found this movie on the cable on demand and didn’t know what it was, at first. The only reason we watched it was the badass cast listed in the description. Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill and Vince Vaughn. There was a fourth guy named Richard Ayoade, who I had never heard of, but he was awesome, as well.

In order to fully appreciate The Watch, you have to be into certain kinds of humor. First, there are some really crude parts, like excessively crude. Lots of dick jokes. Second, you have to be able to laugh at people behaving weirdly. The personalities of the main characters are quite colorful.

It also throws in a bit of action – alien fighting and such. The Watch is very funny and exciting. It gets an A.


  1. Definitely a great movie. BTW, if you liked Richard Ayoade, you need to try and catch The IT Crowd. It’s available on NetFlix if you have it. Not only one my most favorite Britcoms, but sitcoms in general.
