"The Watch" Movie Review

"The Watch" Movie Review
Thanks to Nuffnang , I was given the chance to attend the Premiere of “The Watch”.

Evan (played by Ben Stiller) is a very active guy in his community and is also the senior manager of the local Costco store. One day, his friend who is a night security guard was murdered. He felt sad for his friend and he decided to form a neighbourhood watch team in order to capture the murderer.
He was only able to recruit three funny characters who were just fooling around. However, as they discovered that aliens have invaded their town, they fought against the aliens to save their neighbourhood from danger.

So, what will the Watch do to save their neighbourhood?

Watch out in the nearest cinema this Thursday!


“The Watch” is a sci-fi comedy with a small amount of horror. It features a great line-up of casts such as Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade.  Well, to be honest, this movie can really give a lot of laughter but can also be boring in some scenes.

The whole movie is basically full of vulgarity whereby 70% of the dialogues include the 4 letter “F” words and also a lot of vulgar yellow jokes. It is a funny movie if this kind of humour is your cup of tea.

The dialogue and script of the film is quite spontaneous in my opinion. It feels like the comedians are given freedom to speak out the dialogues according to their own preferences. It is quite laughable. But can become boring too as you are being desensitized by some yapping dialogues over and over again. Not all the lines are funny. Some can be quite filthy and annoying too.

It is a comedy alright. But do expect to see some gory scenes when the alien murders someone. Do not afraid though. Because there will be jokes and funny dialogues right after these scenes.

Well, I think the plot is mediocre and I think there is not much meaningful message in this film. It is just a comedic version of sci-fi movie “Alien” which is merely intended to create some laughs for the audience.

It is fun but definitely not suitable for all categories of audience. I would advise the minors to stay away from this movie. However, it would definitely be a quirky FUN ride if you are watching it with a bunch of buddies!

What I like about the movie:
  1. Some funny scenes and dialogues (Yeah. Some vulgar jokes in this movie can really be quite funny)
  2. Good comedic acting.
What I dislike about the movie:
  1. Overuse of vulgarity can desensitize the audience, causing some lines to become too repetitive and eventually boring.
  2. Mediocre plot

This movie deserves a 6.0/10.0!

It is a cheeky, vulgar fun meant for buddies to watch! If you are one of those people who love dirty jokes, yeah, you will love this movie!

However, it is not suitable for all audience. Not appropriate for minors. And it’s a turn-off for people who are coming for some sensible laughs. This is a full movie with sexually-related jokes. So, if you do not like to spend an hour plus listening to this kind of jokes, then it would be best that you skip this movie!
