Day 318

movie: The Watch
starring: Jonah Hill, Ben Stiller
genre: Comedy
year: 2012
format: Shaw Video On Demand

plot: After a member of their neighbourhood is killed, one guy decides to start a neighbourhood watch group to help catch the killer as the police have not done so. Three guys all volunteer for different reasons, and on their first night out, they discover an alien has landed down the road.

Okay, this seems to be what I would call guy-lit. It's filled with penis jokes but still somehow less crude then you would expect.

The alien is very typical of what you would expect to see in an Alien film, but it works. (yeah got tongue tied just typing that) There is also a nod to E.T. midway in this movie.

There is something about Jonah Hill that just screams comedy. The few movies I've seen him in, he's nailed the comedic timing with all his costars, making for very natural seeming duos.  

what do i think i learned from this film?
Aliens are like zombies you've got to shot them in the head... so to speak.
