A group of guys stumble upon an alien invasion during a faux neighborhood watch meeting where they usually do some male bonding to get away from their dull suburban lives in this sci-fi comedy starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, and Will Forte. Akiva Schaffer directs from a script by Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg. Jonah Hill and Rosemarie DeWitt co-star. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi
The box says. "Gut busting stuff!"
Not. Not only did I not bust a gut, I never even busted a smile. Ben Stiller is always a 50/50 chance, either he's real funny, or he's awful, depending on the material. Thing is, he can't consistently pick the material. This was so bad. Don't waste your time or money.
I like Ben Stiller. This is terrible. Rent "Keeping the Faith" which is a terrific Ben Stiller movie. Vince Vaughn is probably a very funny guy. I find that his humor lacks timing and any semblance of subtlety. He's just a freight train running over your sense of humor. I don't know if I've ever seen a good movie with Vaughn in it.
