The Watch Reviews

Simon Miraudo

The Watch is indeed a feathered fish. It's a freaking underwater ostrich. Whether or not it will appeal to all four quadrants is of little concern to any viewer lucky enough to be located within its niche demographic, however.

Urban Cinefile

Four likeable guys and fine screen actors make a meal of this loony, gross-out sci-fi comedy, but you wonder if it isn't time for them to leave behind juvenile alley

Bursting with penis jokes, this low-laugh, low-brow comedy hovers somewhere between mash-up and alien mush

September 10, 2012

Off-the-production-line comedy, marketed as a sci-fi fan-boy's lighter bit of fluffy entertainment. And the aliens - seen them, zapped them all before.

The Sunday Age

This little-green-men mash-up shows that in space, no one can hear you laugh.

Rich Cline

With a sour tone and jokes that have no punchlines, this is a relentlessly unfunny comedy that shifts into an unexciting alien invasion thriller

September 4, 2012


Stiller, Vaughn, Hill and Ayoade muster their comedic powers in a bid to save the script. They almost pull it off - but they've all been in better.

Schaffer piles on the jokes and set pieces to keep things moving.

Observer [UK]

Altogether a deeply dislikable damp squib of a picture.

There's nothing particularly offensive about the piece. But its intergalactic badness does take the breath away.

Jason Best
Movie Talk

With this cast and this set-up, we could have had comic fireworks; instead, thanks to slapdash direction and slack pacing, The Watch is a damp squib - so much so that even Vaughn's quick-fire smut fails to ignite.

Shadows on the Wall

The comedy is based on the 'hilarious' notion that these men act like 12-year-olds, talking about sports and sex in the most simplistically rude ways imaginable

Christopher Tookey
Daily Mail [UK]

The Watch is unwatchable - a punishingly long, aggressively crude, laugh-free American comedy about neighbourhood vigilantes in suburban Ohio.

Vaughn is now officially the Hollywood star you would most like to see announcing their retirement.

Ellen E Jones
Total Film

If you can ignore the disturbing parallels with recent events, this middle-aged, Middle-American Attack The Block raises a laugh.

Catherine Shoard

It's got a cast to kill for, a Seth Rogen/Evan Goldberg script (they wrote Superbad) and a promisingly Ghostbusters-ish premise. And yet it's catastrophic.

By the end you want to mercy-shoot everyone involved.

Daily Telegraph

All the bromancing back-slapping can't hide the quartet's crippling lack of screen chemistry, while frights, and laughs, are non-existent.

A career low for everyone involved.

While not expecting Wildean wit, this puerile, or should that be penile, picture doesn't even measure up to previous Stiller/Vaughn pair ups.
