They changed the name, but The Watch is about a neighborhood watch team that is out to protect their town from aliens from outer space… whether they are a danger to anyone or not. Somehow this one doesn’t really appeal to me, probably because I don’t find either Stiller or Vaughn more than boring. The plot seems to be an Americanized remake of Attack The Block except without the inter-character relationships that made the original film interesting. But it does have Richard Ayoade and Billy Crudup, and I suppose they might manage to save the movie.
