Amazing/Hillarious movie

This movie has tons of crude jokes and sexual scenes, as well as sick violence. There is a decent amount of blood and alien attacks. The language is very strong. Not al all for kids, but this is a great movie.

Big Thumbs Down

I really want to ask these men who make these raunchy films how they would feel if they were on a date and someone came up to them and tossed their penis in their face? I am tired of women's breasts tossed in my face and refuse to watch anymore of this crap. Horrible movie. It is obvious they wrote this movie for perverted teenage boys. FAIL.

More trash from trashy writers.

If you've seen the previews then you've seen more then you need to see. Another typical film where writers don't have enough sense to write good material. They go for what they believe the average viewer enjoys. They haven't grown up enough to realize that most people don't want to hear this kind of language. Makes you wonder what kind of childhood they had. Didn't their parents ever teach them that foul language isn't proper? Apparently not. AND the audience they do get for this 'Turkey' are people you wouldn't want to associate with anyway.

The Watch

This was a really funny movie. There were a few filmmakers' mistakes. Like a guy said he was out of ammo and pulled some out of his pocket when the situation ended. There was a good amount of gore, but the main problem was the sex. A scene was about infertility, and there was some very descriptive talk. Another scene took place in an Orgy, and you saw a lot. The cussing was constant, worse than Ted and so were the drugs. This was a good movie that was funny, but there are better comedies out.

don't THE WATCH this movie

This movie was EXTREMELY disappointing. I expected Attack the Block mixed with 21 Jump Street, and instead gotta s3xual swearing fest. The s3x jokes were stupid. That language was annoying, and the thing the audience is waiting for (alien violence) takes forever! You have to sit through 60 minutes of inappropriate, non-funny jokes until anything actually gets good. And that's just annoying. Honestly, it's a waste time if you ask me.

16 and over.

The Watch is a disappointing raunchy sci-fi comedy movie stars with your favorite actors ben stiller, Vince Vaughn, and Jonah Hill that is play for laughs this movie is for your older teens and parents you need to know that the watch has intense bloody violence filled with alien attacks blood spatters, body parts, and mutilated corpses there's hand-to-hand violence and lots of shooting there's also some inappropriate scenes when it comes to some strong sexual content shown such as several characters engage in simulated sex, and three men engage in mutual masturbation there's also some strong language used and some drinking and smoking used such as drinking hard liquor, smoking pot, and popping pills from a pharmacy despite the inappropriate scenes and the characters bad behavior in this movie the movie does have a positive message it's about teamwork and learning to communicate characters also show courage in the face of danger and the role model is that Evan is a responsible, brave member of his community, but he's also uptight and insecure. Happily, he learns to overcome some of these problems by trusting others.

16+

I think it is a fantastic film but there are some scenes not appropriate for children aged 15 or under. I am now 14, but watched it in Canada when i was 13, and the film includes sex scenes, drinking in a moving vehicle, blood and guts and foul language. Children aged 16+17 should be okay, and of course adults.

Worst Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn movie ever.

We only watched half an hour and left. The movie is horrible. Don't waste your time or money. We asked for our money back. The manager apologized and gave us a refund. Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn should feel horrible about making such a bad movie. No way this makes any money.
