Check Out the First Clip From 'The Watch'Jacob Hall |
With 'The Watch' only a month away from its July 27th release, expect that marketing to pick up steam, especially since this (comparatively) small sci-fi comedy will be dealing directly with the box office wake of 'The Dark Knight Rises.' However, a comedy starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill shouldn't have a problem finding its audience if it's, you know, funny. With the first clip from the film now available online, we can start to see if it is.
'The Watch' finds four members of a ragtag neighborhood watch group completely out of their element when they have to stop an alien invasion. It's a fun concept. It has a strong cast. It was written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, who wrote the hilarious 'Superbad.' What's not to appreciate here? Anyway, the first clip is an amusing if not particularly funny bit about what happens when Vince Vaughn realizes that he needs to urinate while the group is conducting a stakeout in the parking lot of their local Costco. It feels like a throwaway aside, so hopefully it's not indicative of the entire film. What do you think?
