The Watch

The Watch Movie Poster

Evan Trautwig (Ben Stiller) is an active member of the small town of Glenview and the senior manager at the local Costco. One night when a Costco security guard is murdered, Evan decides to form a Neighborhood Watch and makes it his duty to protect his community. Unfortunately, Evan is only able to recruit three members: construction worker Bob (Vince Vaughn), high school dropout Franklin (Jonah Hill), and recently divorced Jamarcus (Richard Ayoade).

Together, this group of overworked, exhausted suburban fathers uses the neighborhood watch as a way to escape their families and get in some male bonding time. However, while on duty one night, the Watch discovers a highly dangerous metallic orb and deduces that they are in for a real alien invasion. The men are then forced to protect their neighborhood, and themselves, against these dangerous extraterrestrial creatures.
