Save your money!! I gave Stiller, Hill and Vaughn another chance and wasted our money. I don't think there was a script for this; they just ad-libbed as they went. My wife and I left the movie about half-way through. We have never done that in our twenty years together. This movie was predictable, vulgar and stupid - a waste of time and money. Take the money you would spend on this and go out and have dinner together - it would be better spent.

I was excited for this movie coming from the guys who did Hot Rod but this film did not deliver on any level of humor. Throughout the whole movie I did not laugh or chuckle and when the credits rolled in, it made me walk out the film furious and disappointed at what could have been comedy gold, but in the end they gave us comedy coal. Also the story is a rip of the much funnier Attack Of The Block which I would recommend checking out over this movie any day.

My son and I both found the movie very funny and suspenseful.
We went to see it despite s terrible review in the Post.
For some good laughs and a surprising story, go see The Watch.

I didn't have high expectations, but this movie was an insult to anyone posessing a modicum of intelligence. It was EXCRUCIATING! The toilet humor couldn't even save it. The hard-core Vince Vaughn/Ben Stiller fan I saw this movie with was not only dissapointed, but disgusted. 6 couples in this not-even-close-to-being-packed theater walked out after the first 30 minutes. Should've followed...

I thought the film was a great time at the movies. I was laughing the whole way through. Many critics are bashing this movie to bits because the plot is to small, but what do you expect from a sci-fi/comedy movie.
All the actors did great, Vince Vaughn was the most hilarious my opinion, and Will Forte was absolutely hysterical!
The film is not for kids! A lot of raunchiness and crude stuff in this, mostly aimed for 17-30 age group. Older folk might fine some of the jokes offensive.
The film isn't a great film, but you will have a blast if you bring friends along with you. I will say it was funnier than Ted. Go see this movie and have a great time, it doesn't take the plot seriously and that makes the film even better!
I give "The Watch" 7.7 out of 10 stars
