The Watch

Got protection?


The Watch
Four everyday suburban guys come together as an excuse to escape their humdrum lives one night a week. But when they accidentally discover that their town has become overrun with aliens posing as ordinary suburbanites, they have no choice but to save their neighbourhood, and the world, from total extermination. Naturally things do not go exactly as planned. Expect a lot of crude humour. The critics were generally underwhelmed.

102 minutes.
No persons under 16 (Language, Sex, Nudity, Violence).

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Sheri Linden quote iconGenre mashup misfires past its prime.
5
Die Burger
Paul Boekkooi quote iconDié komedie, wetenskapfiksie meng nie.

Box Office
James Rocchi quote iconAs broad as a barn yet as thin as paper, The Watch is a summertime action-comedy that works almost in spite of its overcrowded cast and loose, pulpy spitball of a plot.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconThe Watch is a studio turd marinated in eau de skunk that stinks worse than week-old fish.

Rottentomatoes tomatometer
Tomatometer quote iconThe Watch uneasily mixes sci-fi elements with gross-out gags and strands its talented cast with a script that favors vulgarity over wit at nearly every turn
