‘The Watch’ saves world with cheap laughs

DVD Review


Pauls Valley, Oklahoma —

Admittedly, much of the plot is rushed along just so it can get to the next punchline, be it a few people in the town that bully our heroes or Evan mostly ignoring his wife Abby (Rosemarie DeWitt) until she is just relevant to include in the story. Then again, it’s funny enough that one can forgive the lazy script, especially if one is content to limit it to a one time showing.

As far as the age appropriate audience, this one is best suited for adults due to content and the low brow direction. Don’t expect a sequel, despite how the ending may leave that open. As a result I’d say “The Watch” deserves a verdict of one and a half out of five aliens.
