The Watch Reviews
October 18, 2014
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.

I just plain didn't like it. It was funny on paper but it had too desperate of a feel to it, like it was bumbling around, wasting time, being happy and drunk. It's very ugly to watch for a serious person, but for a smug party animal and hippie, I guess it's a little more tolerable. I just found it shocking. And not in a good way. I'm just not a fan of the ultra lazy, smug and smart type of person that thinks that doing things that are really easy is the way to go and is always happy. It's offensive to people who actually struggle with anxiety to see these drunk crackheads make a joke out of everything by taking shortcuts and putting no effort in whatsoever while other people struggle to make a living, to get enough to eat.

Bad - or even awful - don't even begin to describe this painfully lame movie. Funny guys doing a lot of nothing with nothing material.

Reading these reviews, I would not watch this movie - however the reality is that it is actually quite fun and achieves what is sets out to do. It is lazy, low-ball, vulgar humour and sometimes that is required. Definitely worth the watch.

You know this actually looks kinda funny

A waste of talented actors and even more talented writers. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg as well as the rest of the cast onscreen tried to create some sort of raunchy, hard-R send up to Ghostbusters. But they tripped on their own feet while doing it. This movie is all over the place, and not in a good way.

The Watch has its funny moments but is lazy and apathetic with its delivery. Feeling like it was put together in one afternoon, it has its spurts of comedic glamor, but is overridden by a plague of uncaring moments that don't contribute anything to the plot. It is barely worth the watch and has little to be proud of.

Absolutely hilarious and obviously had a great cast to go along with this movie. This movie has great taste in music and the humor was off the charts.

Funny, entertaining, and full of a knockout cast, The Watch is a great comedy, that uses disgusting gross-out gags to achieve laughs. And it definitely does!

If you want to make a comedy, keep it a comedy, don't mix it with violent bloody
scenes that will make all the laughs go puff.

The narrative was fairly boring, with a few fractured side stories to try and add interest. There are some laughs here, most of them packaged into messy improvised conversations. Largely, characters and humour feel like yesterdays low-brow laughs, all bar Richard Ayoade's positively out-of-place persona as the awkward nerdy type.
