Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade take male bonding to hilarious new heights in this outrageous, no-holds-barred comedy that gets funnier every time you watch! The Watch will release on DVD and Blu-ray November 13, 2012.
There’s trouble brewing in peaceful Glenview, Ohio. That’s why four civic-minded citizens, armed with flashlights, walkie-talkies and spiffy new jackets, have teamed up to safeguard their community. But the guys find more than they bargained for when they uncover an alien plot to destroy Earth, and now these bumbling heroes are Glenview’s only chance to save the neighborhood — and the world — from annihilation!
I viewed The Watch with my husband and thoroughly enjoyed it from beginning to end. The movie stars Ben Stiller who plays a Costco manager named Evan. Evan discovers a security guard murdered in the store and decides to form a neighborhood watch. Three men join Evan in the neighborhood watch and form a bond of raunchiness, slapstick humor and immaturity. It is later found out that aliens are the ones who have done the murder and have a plan to destroy the world. It is up to Evan and his team of vigilantes to save Earth.
Vince Vaughn had me laughing hard throughout the movie. He was my favorite actor, especially when I took notice that he kept calling one of his cohorts different vulgar nicknames throughout the scenes. Ben Stiller did a good job as well but his humor fell flat. This movie is for adults and definitely not recommended for children. There is profanity, nudity, and raunchiness throughout. It appeals mostly to men but I, for one, got several laughs out of this movie.
I received DVD for review. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.
