The Watch Reviews
April 13, 2014
Combining some elements of a sci-fi flick into an R-rated comedy doesn't fit well together. Throughout the plot there are predictability, pointlessness, silliness, and questioning - mainly towards Vaughn's performance. The film probably relies only on Stiller, Vaughn and Hill to deliver the comedic energy, and Stiller's efforts were probably less than the other two. (C+)

Maybe my rating might be inflated ... I read the reviews of the movie before watching so I came into the movie expecting a terrible movie that was crude and disgusting. Maybe that expectation is why I thought the movie wasn't that bad. I will say, it wasn't really all that funny as you would expect from the crew of actors, but it was entertaining. It was not even really as vulgar as many are claiming; in fact, it was fairly tame there. It was pretty stupid with the aliens and all, but not a bad rainy day to watch once in your life movie.

Stupid, slow, predictable, low brow cheesy sci fi comedy. I have NO idea how they got Hill, Stiller and Vaughn to star in this, lol. Enjoyable to have playing in the background while doing house chores.

With a great cast you would think that it would turn out well. But it didn't

Such a waste of acting talent over a terrible script. Why?

Not as bad as you have been leading to believe, but with all the talented involved it should have been some much better! Basically Ghostbusters with dick jokes

An interesting premise is wasted on a terribly by the numbers screenplay. So many jokes fall flat, and many of the performance is are just uninspired.

The Watch undoubtedly has potential, particularly with its talented cast, but is unfortunately drowned in worn out jokes and a poorly thought out script.

Richard Ayoade is an international treasure. His appearance alone should have made this movie $100 million.
If you're looking for some kitschy entertaining entertainment, look no further my good man and/or woman and/or hermie -short for hermaphrodite- and/or whatever other gender-thing the kids are into these days. The movie is silly, so watch it. Watch it now. Stop not watching it.
My reviews are the best.

The Watch falls short in combing science fiction and comedy, creating a catastrophic mess of thoughtless humor.

Sporadicly funny, brutal , and too Violent the Watch's talented cast is let down by its subject matter and it's reliance on crude humor

The Watch is not a particularly great movie. Not even in the slightest. However, after hearing a ton of bad things about this film, I was rather surprised about how awful it wasn't. The script offers very few laughs, the science fiction element and the plot were extremely stupid, and while it did not bother me, the product placement is rather obvious. That being said, I did not hate watching this. The cast was pretty cool, I thought the main actors did the best they could with what they had available, and while it is extremely stupid, it didn't feel excessively stupid. There is nothing great, or even remotely good about The Watch, but it is alot more watchable than many other "comedies" around today.

This is really one of the wort films from 2012.

Juvenile to be sure, but the charisma of the cast and some decent gag and action beats do help save ´The Watch´from its own stupidity. Of course, one still can´t ignore the plethora of dumb characters and contrived plot points.

Really bad movie from beginning to end. I can't believe Costco paid for placement.

Un cast molto ricco per questa commedia!
Oltre al cast però non troviamo nulla di eccezionale in questo film, una commedia pre-impostata dove tutti (dagli attori, al regista fino allo sceneggiatore) viaggiano con il pilota automatico.
Alla fine però non è neppure così malvagia come commedia sciocca.

The funny antics and outlandish plot make the Watch uneven, but also unique. The Watch is a good comedy with some laughable scenes.

When I saw Richard Ayoade in the trailer, I thought it would be great. Guess what.. it's not.

Gross, unfunny, idiotic. There's really nothing else to say.

Comedy isn't The Watch's strongest point, but it is very enjoyable and didn't quite deserve the hate that it got.
