Storyline

Mike, Danny, and Rick are grown men who share a house in Chicago. They take on a fourth house mate, John, who is Mike's estranged first cousin. John's welcome to the house is crowned by his introduction to a game of perpetual pranks called "Watch it!" When not playing pranks on each other, the three men spend their time womanizing, avoiding commitment, treating women badly, and talking about women in the coarsest terms. John, somewhat of a drifter with a fear of commitment, is nonetheless a man apart from this trio of feckless cowards. He takes a shine to Anne, recently jilted by his cousin Mike. Meanwhile, Rick is doing his best to ruin a promising relationship with the fetching and sincere Ellen. How Annie, Ellen, Rick, Mike, and John sort out (or fail to sort out) their social lives becomes the focus of the movie. Written by veloc <velo_00@yahoo.com>

I hope this movie comes out on DVD
3 August 2008 | by heegoSee all my reviews

I love this movie. It's a movie meant to be seen, and it is one that you can throw in the machine to "watch it" anytime to lighten one's spirits. Relationships are not always an easy thing to keep in check between men and women, and lots of things can happen. "Watch It" helps keep one on his/ her toes. Values and Morales are questioned. Attitudes and behaviors create reactions that create pathways of opportunities. Which way do I between right, wrong, and the unknown? I do not think that the movie got all the credit it deserves, and that I hope others get the chance to see this film. Please get this movie to DVD or better, because VHS is the past, and this movie is meant to be seen forever.
