Forget the plot and the messiness of the storyline and enjoy The Watch! This is one hilariously entertaining movie. This film has an original story with an extremely amusing ensemble cast. The Watch features actors Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, and newcomer, Richard Ayoade, in a film that was renamed in light of the tragic shooting in February this year involving a neighborhood security guard. The Watch is a true comedy/sci-fi hybrid film.
The Watch takes place in Glenview, Ohio and revolves around the formation of a neighborhood watch group to keep an eye on the town after a local Cosco security guard is murdered. Evan Trautwig (Stiller), the manager of Cosco, makes an announcement at a high school football game, offering anyone a chance to join his watch. Much of the town considers this a joke, but two middle-aged men (Vaughn and Ayoade), and a high school dropout (Hill), join up with Trautwig in the hopes of keeping the town safe and having a good time. As further mysteries plague this Ohio town, the neighborhood watch gets closer to catching their murderer and believes they have found traces of alien life. The Watch is filled with vulgar but entertaining humor, which keeps you laughing the entire time.
