The reason why a film like The Watch falls flat on its face is because it thinks that just because that there's cursing, it's funny... It's not funny. It was never funny, and I personally think that it was intentionally trying to drill this "hilarious" thought into our minds. The most cursing I've ever seen in a film and most of it didn't make sense at all. I just wasted two hours on a movie I should have never seen to begin with. The talent in this film was completely wasted. Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn haven't made a decent film since 2005, so there's no use to talk about them. Jonah Hill and that Richard Ayoade were the talent that was squandered in this film. The least I can say was that Ayoade was likable. All of the others were filthy mouthed selfish perverts who had no decency or intelligence to steer the movie in the right direction. Personally, judging from the score above is how I can never recommend this movie to you. You're welcome.
