I know I'm not alone when I say that I'm growing tired of Ben Stiller (and Vince Vaughn for that matter) and his underdog type of character. He rarely offers anything new and I find most of his performances genetic. Having said that The Watch is a refreshing and entertaining flick. It rides the wake of popularity of other R-rated sci-fi movies like Paul and Attack the Block. A group of concerned citizens form a neighbourhood watch group to catch a killer who's started bumping off residents. They soon find themselves taking on aliens and its basically a situation comedy with several set-ups and executions. I know I'm not selling it very well but the movie works and offers a steady roll of laughs. Jonah Hill is great and his performance clearly overshadows Stiller and Vaughn who offer nothing but recycled shtick. Another nice touch is the casting of Richard Ayoade (from The IT Crowd). He suits the movie and has some great moments, although he wasn't given enough to showcase his talent. The Watch is fun and would have been excellent if cast better!
