Very very funny. Excellent casting. Great satire. Several scenes were hard to watch and seemed inappropriate in view of the Aurora incident - but then the movie was filmed prior.
If you need some fun go see it. Particularly if you are a Men in Black fan.

Although a fun movie I'm shocked that with this talent it was not better than what was delivered. I wasn't disappointed. I could watch Stiller, Vaughn and Hill waiting for a bus but this did not live up to the potential shown in the trailer and my anticipation based upon there talent. If you're a fan go see it right away. It wouldn't be dreadful to wait for it won't survive long. You can watch it on a movie channel when some brand new potentially already cancelled television series is on.

I knew going into this to expect nothing but stupidity and that's what I got. This wasn't so great. The story line was ALL over the place. Bob and his daughter story line fit no where in this AT ALL!! There was a lot of ***** references that after a while just didn't make sense. Odd sex scenes. . .I mean things just happened that although funny because it was funny just made you think WTF!!
Yes it was funny but it just made no damn sense. . .it's not worth it at the theater, def a redbox movie where if you don't pay attention it doesn't matter because what happens doesn't make sense anyway!! BLEH

I read the reviews before I saw the movie and was scared that it might not be that funny. To all the people that reviewed it bad have no funny bones. This movie was great! I love dumb comedies aka zoolander, 40 yr old virgin, tropic thunder, old school, Anchor Man, and Dodge Ball. These are just a few to give you a sense of what I think is funny. So if you think the movies listed were funny, then you will love The Watch. Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill make this movie a instant classic.

I dont normally write reviews on movies, but this one was soooo bad I just have to say something. This movie reminded me of a low budget film. Poorly written with a bad and stupid story line and even worse humor. Trying to combine an alien movie with a comedy and stupid humor, just didnt work for me. Even the acting left a lot to be desired. After about 30 minutes, I was ready to get up and walk out of the movie, and I have never done that before. I decided to stick it out and not totally waste my money. After all, the popcorn was good and I at least wanted to finish that.
The orgy scene and the constant use of the "F" word was too much for me. The constant use of the "F" bomb just ruins the movie, along with the lame sense of humor and lame jokes. I found it more sickening than funny and I like a good comedy.
My advice is dont waste your time and money on this one. I wouldnt even bother waiting for the redbox rental. Definately dont take the kids or a date to this, if you go.
