Don't expect big laughs and you'll get a somewhat entertaining premise.

Oh come on guys! Your talents are worth much more than what you put into this average at best movie....sigh.

If scientists could take time away from, you know, curing diseases, and craft the perfect blend of "meh" in a lab, I would be The Watch. It's not particularly offensive or terrible but it's certainly not good. The humor of boys misbehaving and talking tough doesn't ever seem to g...

Skip it. Not totally horrible but this movie seems to have been made for 13 year olds by 13 year olds. The kind of humor that works on the playground but not in the cinema. Just enough sex jokes and nudity to keep the 7th graders interested with a few explosions and gunfights add...

Akiva Schaffer's mixture of sci-fi and comedy never blends well in The Watch.
For a 95 minute story, there are very few laughs to be had, if any. The story feels like forever before it gets going and when it finally does, it dies down again. Fortunately, a plot twist a...

I admittedly have not watched very many panned movies over the years for good reason, but my fiancé wanted to see this and I fought to not waste our money on it in theaters and wait for DVD based on the horrendous reviews. I'm glad I won that battle because this is the worst movi...

Oh, what a horrific waste of time. It looked generic, it smelled generic, but it wasn't generic, it was wasteful. You wouldn't think something that contains such a diverse and funny cast could be such a blatant cop out. It's not their fault, it really isn't, because though some o...

I gotta say, you see a movie with Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller, and Jonah Hill you think it would be awesome. Instead, you get "The Watch" a very uneven sci-fi/comedy/action movie that doesn't work. It's about four guys who form a neighborhood watch after a murder in their town. ...
