The Watch

What I liked:

  • It has a good cast: Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, Richard Ayoade, Rosemarie DeWitt, Will Forte, Billy Crudup, and Nicholas Braun.
  • It has a decent soundtrack.
  • There is a Christopher Cross "Sailing" ringtone.
  • It is sometimes funny.
  • It takes place in Glenview, Ohio.  In Bob's man cave there are Indians, Browns, OSU, and Blue Jacket memorabilia.
  • There is a cameo from The Lonely Island's Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer.

What I didn't like:
  • There were too many subplots and it lacked focus.
  • It wasn't that funny.
  • It's a waste of DeWitt's talents.

Side Note:
  • At least half of the audience seemed to like it.  It just didn't do anything for me.

Grade: D+
