'The Watch' Review

The zeitgeist giveth and the zeitgeist taketh away. Fortuitous timing lends some films the aura of relevance; bad timing lends others the stink of impropriety. Released last summer, ‘The Watch’ would have been just another Hollywood action comedy. Released this summer, it’s burdened by all sorts of unwanted and unintended cultural associations. It already endured a title change (from ‘Neighborhood Watch’) after the death of Trayvon Martin. Now this film -- which features a man exaggeratedly grieving for a murdered friend for comic effect and an antisocial dropout who stockpiles weapons -- opens a week after the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado. This poor movie can’t catch a break, which is a shame because it’s actually pretty funny.

Check Out the First Clip From 'The Watch'

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' Clip: Move Over Aliens, It's Time For Pee Jokes

The Watch’ remains a tough movie to figure out … and we’re only weeks away from the comedy reaching theaters. Usually by now, a film has laid 90% of its cards on the table. But we’re still not sure if ‘The Watch’ is more raunchy dude humor or whiz-bang sci-fi effects. Or will it be a healthy mix of both? The newest clip sheds a little light on the mystery, shifting focus directly on the “raunchy” rather than the “whiz-bang.” Though there is some whizz.

'The Watch' should be a movie that's a slam dunk for summer audiences. It features comedy heavyweights Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill caught up in a big alien invasion type movie. So why have the trailers all felt underwhelming? Well 'The Watch' is about to fix that with a hilarious new trailer. You're gonna wanna watch this trailer. (Get it?...)

Conan O'Brien seemed as surprised as his audience by the two guests stars on his stage Tuesday night. First, 'SNL' and '30 Rock' comedian Chris Parnell popped up in a sketch led by Deon Cole, but walked off the stage almost as unceremoniously as he arrived. Seconds later, though, Vince Vaughn took the stage with an exclusive new trailer for his summer comedy 'The Watch.' Didn't stay up to watch this live? Don't worry. We have it below.

Boy, that Vince Vaughn sure has his plate full these days, and we're not talking about craft services (okay, probably that too.)  Between re-teaming with 'Wedding Crashers' star Owen Wilson for 'The Internship,' potentially taking on 'The Rockford Files,' and developing an FX dominatrix drama, just how will he manage to cram in a new ABC sitcom with Tony Danza?  And which of them will be the boss?

'The Rockford Files' was a popular television drama series in the late seventies. James Garner played Los Angeles P.I. Jim Rockford who was known for using his charm to get out of a situation instead of his fists. And now Universal Pictures  is looking to make a big-screen version of the movie and they've already got an actor in mind to play the popular detective.

Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson Reteam for 'The Internship'

'The Wedding Crashers' was one of 2005's biggest movies and made over $200 Million - which was a surprise for an R-rated comedy. Well timed and with a great cast, the film starred Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, and it's surprising that the two haven't worked together as co-leads again. So there should be some excitement in their re-teaming for 'The Internship,' which starts shooting this summer.
