The WatchThe Watch
Troubled by unfortunate event after unfortunate event, The Watch sidesteps faux pas to come out on top as a consistently funny sci-fi comedy. "Summer movie logic" is the foundation for The Watch's ridiculous plot, which finds four adults teaming up to form a Neighborhood Watch, trying to solve the murder of a local employee, and eventually pursuing an extraterrestrial killer. Instead of making sense of it all, The Watch wisely focuses on its four leads: Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, and The IT Crowd's Richard Ayoade — a quartet whose bro banter goes a long way in spicing up the dust-covered material. There's nothing revelatory to be found in The Watch, but the cast's knack for improvisation, a poetry of the profane, makes the adventure worth viewing. Stiller's Evan is a micromanaging do-gooder who can't find time for his wife; Hill's Franklin is a mildly disturbed weapons enthusiast yearning to join the police; Ayoade is the quaint weirdo who joins the Watch to fill the void left by his divorce; Vince Vaughn is Vince Vaughn: a loud, crass gent looking for a bit of male bonding. The ragtag team assembles to fight crime, but they spend most of their time drinking in a minivan. For a movie about enforcing the law and alien invasions, there's a surprising lack of action in The Watch. Long stretches of the film see the central players yapping back and forth about everything.
