The Watch uneasily mixes sci-fi elements with gross-out gags and strands its talented cast with a script that favors vulgarity over wit at nearly every turn.

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.
A film packaged as pure product, aiming to snare the combined markets for loudmouth comics, sci-fi action and, er, Richard Ayoade - who, however seemingly misplaced, is the freshest thing here.
It's a mash-up of blah buddy comedy and gross-out CGI monster splatter, with nary a laugh to be had.
The Watch is a predictable and lazy comedy wrapped around a penis joke occasionally enlivened with some funny lines.
What should have been at least Ghostbusters lite ends up sliming audiences with sloppy seconds.
"The Watch" takes the same ethos of male bonding, obsession with sex and sardonic violence that has proved so profitable in recent years on yet another summer spin.
On paper, this movie looks pretty good. These are all dudes who know how to make with the funny. And yet it never quite clicks.
The atrocious comedy that comprises the majority of this sci-fi spoof isn't so much gratuitous, but just simply not very funny.
These men know comedy. So I cannot for the life of me comprehend what trusted adviser or dollar amount (or automatic weapon) persuaded them to sign on to this mess of a movie.
This wants to be (I think) Invasion of the Body Snatchers via Ghostbusters and Attack the Block but succeeds in being nothing but its own dreadful, pitiful, tedious self.
The Watch isn't consistently funny enough to stop you noticing you've seen it all before.
Wretched dinge that it is, it is almost too drecky to write about, but here goes nothing.
The neighborhood guys usually thought of as "trying too hard to fit in" band together to party and bond only to find unexpected redemption when aliens from space threaten the hood. You'll leave this wishing that they hadn't gone for the easy humor most times but, eh, whaddaya expect?
Eh. Ben Stiller and a gang of adult ragamuffins form a neighborhood watch only to be thwarted by divergent purposes and loyalties. The big alien twist is quite deus ex machina - oops spoilers - but Billy Crudup is slickly creepy as an Eyes Wide Shut sex emperor.
It had its moments... but they were too few!
From the trailer, this movie looks like they will offer a lot of fun for the audiences who watch this movie.. But after I spent 100 minutes watching this movie, I just wanna say that this movie is nothing but another Ben Stiller stereotypical movie of comedy, the difference was it tells story about alien.. The performance from the cast was a decent performance, except for Jonah Hill who kinda steal my attention with his performance in this movie.. Overall, it just a decent watch..
