KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A group of A-list comedians team-up in The Watch.
The new action comedy has a very strong cast including Jonah Hill, Ben Stiller, and Vince Vaughn.
Oscar nominee Jonah Hill hasn't done a bad movie over the course of seven years.
The only flaw he ever had was The Sitter, and even then, it wasn't as bad as half the comedies out there these days.
Ben Stiller at age 46, can still make us laugh-out-loud.
Then there's Vince Vaughn who still remains at the height of his career.
"I wasn't necessarily looking to do another comedy right away and then I got the opportunity to work with those guys and it would have been insane to pass up", said Hill.
With all of these men in one movie, you would think it has to be great right?
The problem with The Watch may be its story.
It's about a group of dads who form a neighborhood watch group as a way to get out of their normal family routines.
Seems like a great concept, until their lives are turned upside down when they run into aliens.
The neighborhood watch group rises up to the challenge, and tries to defend earth from an alien invasion.
The Watch is rated R, which in this case, helps its level of crude and humorous comedy.
"The fun thing in our movie is you don't have to censor it. You just let it be what it should be", said Stiller.
Without many limitations, this group of actors could bring something special to the screen.
The Watch is not going to be memorable to audiences.
But it will be able to provide some laughs here and there; maybe even just enough to keep this flick, from hitting rock bottom at the box-office.
The Watch is rated R for some strong sexual content including references, pervasive language and violent images.
Runtime: 1 hour and 38 minutes.
