September 11, 2017
The Watch isn't consistently funny enough to stop you noticing you've seen it all before.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Wretched dinge that it is, it is almost too drecky to write about, but here goes nothing.
April 17, 2016
A laughably inept comedic wasteland in which the only things harder to come by than laughs are reasons not to bolt halfway through and ask for a refund.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
July 17, 2013
The four leads are funny, separately and together.
Full Review | Original Score: B
May 26, 2013
Rote, crass and worst of all, totally laugh-free, it inspires you to exact your own brand of vigilante justice.
Full Review | Original Score: D-
March 4, 2013
Light entertainment at its lightest, The Watch does at least elicit some laughs.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

"The Watch" is a Dream Team in which no one's drawn up any plays and nobody passes the ball. Everybody just shoots and hopes for the best.
December 12, 2012
This lame sci-fi comedy was supposed to be for teens, but was re-written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg to be aimed at adults. The result is a movie that doesn't work for either.

November 22, 2012
Bland and juvenile, with little thought, humour, or imagination. It actually endorses its posse of puerile nobodies as noble, ass-kicking Americans.
November 16, 2012
A talented cast shines brightly, but can't carry the weight of this under-inspired sci-fi frolic.
October 30, 2012
For a flabby 101-minute movie, the gag hit rate is alarmingly low.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Aims for ridiculous comedy, hits "ridiculous"

The aliens may be not of this Earth, but the jokes in this lifeless sci-fi comedy are so lazy they never even manage to lift off.

The only arcs these characters encounter are in their pants.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

If the scenes between the four leads had been stronger, it might have been easier to overlook the film's structural and tonal weaknesses, but as it happens they only rescue it in dribs and drabs.

The Watch is a lazy production at nearly every level. Expect these aliens to have better luck in a couple years - when they invade basic cable.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 26, 2012
All of this builds a pretty catastrophic picture of The Watch - and I think, given how many other awesome, funny, gross and clever comedies are out there, I refuse to be an apologist. It's not an unmitigated disaster, but it's not good - or good enough.

... one of the funniest movies of the year.

the story regularly dozes off and wakes up in other places, squinting its eyes and groping in the dark for laughs.
September 15, 2012
It's one of those sad occasions where the bringing together of funny people mysteriously negates their ability to be funny.
