Poster for the movie "The Watch"

The Watch

Ben Stiller generally makes funny films. Though this seems more like a diversion from his usual form to be edgier to appeal to the current audience with this film which prefers vulgarity over humour. Many times did I think “just stop swearing and get on with it”. It seemed to borrow from B-movies but not elevate them with its quality cast. Nice idea, but poorly implemented. Sorry guys.

The Watch

20121 h 38 min

Four everyday suburban guys come together as an excuse to escape their humdrum lives one night a week.
