Plot was unoriginal, and unimaginitive. Several well-known actors and several girls with \"lack of adequate covering\" is what made this movie possible. It sure wasn't the story or plot line. Wasted $1.29 at the Redbox.

This is a great movie for young adults. I thought it was hilarious and it had a good choice of actors. Couldn't stop laughing. I bought the DVD for sure.

The Watch takes the same ethos of male bonding, obsession with sex and sardonic violence that has proved so profitable in recent years on yet another summer spin. The tires may be in need of changing pretty soon, but for now the jalopy still runs. Full Review

Some of the phallic jokes work, others are really lame. Fortunately there are many other funny bits that have nothing to do with body parts that keep the laughs coming. Full Review

The film is one long Costco joke - but the punch line is never all that funny. Full Review

If this amateur justice league spent as much time analyzing clues as they did analyzing their junk, in every slang variation available in the Urban Dictionary, the murder mystery in The Watch could have been solved on the first night of surveillance. Full Review
Mick LaSalle
San Francisco Chronicle
As far as formulaic, empty and disappointing comedies go, The Watch is far from the worst. About every seven or eight minutes, perhaps a dozen times over the course of the picture, the movie generates a medium-size laugh. Not a big laugh. Full Review
