THE WATCH (Theatrical Release USA 2012)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.8|5.0 Starsìì

The Watch—great acting and well portrayed story—falls flat due to its frequent references to sexuality and full view  explicit, orgy scene. Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill, Vince Vaughn, and Richard Ayoade’s assigned dialogue ruins what could have been a highly appealing movie that works across a broad audience range. The movie loses appeal and does not serve Costco’s store reputation well.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe? 

No. This film to some extent is good, but the sexual content overpowers the film so that it seems to belong far beyond the NC 17 rating.
