Maybe because we saw this at home for $3.99 through amazon that we enjoyed this movie, since this has many negative reviews. Not sure. I enjoyed the silly humor and silly plot. Mindless fun!

Sci Fi meets Comedy???

I for one really enjoyed the movie. My two boys and I laughed more times than I could remember in a movie. Some part not perfect for the boys but overall a winner.

Dear Hollywood,

At least you're taking a step in the right direction. The past few years' comedies have been a slippery slope down the muddy hill to see who can say the most outlandish things and who can deliver the most raunchy sex jokes. It's unfortunate that "The Watch" isn't a particularly good film, but it is at least clever, original and less vulgar. Don't think me a prude, I simply think that recent comedies could have been written by teenagers learning about their sexual desires and there's no actual grown-up humor. It's like we've recently begun to believe that only adults understand sex, when really it's only adults that understand jokes with sexual undertone (ala "Shrek"). There's still plenty of sex and **** jokes, although they fit in with how a group of guy friends talk among one another. The idea is fun, the cast seemed to enjoy making the film and I wouldn't shy away if they did another movie together. However, this one isn't going to be remembered very favorably, if at all.-Comedy Fan

Not All Cracked Up To Be

I was a bit disappointed. Even though it a few funny moments, I thought it could have been funnier as well as better; especially when three of my favorite actors were casted in it, Vince Vaughan, Ben Stiller and Jonah Hill. Perhaps the movie is aimed at an age-based demographic that I am no longer in. Personally I wished that I had waited until it was available for home rental.

Could Have Been Better

By Peachezwolf

I was originally really excited to see this movie but after reading the critic's reviews I didn't expect much. With a cast like this, it could have been better. It was funny, I laughed out loud a few times and most of the theater was laughing the whole time. A lot of ***** jokes. It was worth the $5 I spent to see it. It wouldn't hurt to wait for it on redbox, though. Overall, the movie was pretty good, not as good as you'd think with 4 of the funniest actors around, but I wouldn't care if I ever saw it again.
