The Watch is, more or less, a Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn vehicle that also happens to star Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade, a British comedian/actor you might recognize from the popular BBC comedy series The IT Crowd. Written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Superbad, Pineapple Express), The Watch was originally titled Neighborhood Watch; however, due to the controversy of the Trayvon Martin case, Fox decided to change the name
Stiller and Vaughn run a “neighborhood watch” group that serves as a front for dads to get some male-bonding time away from their families. They patrol their community looking for trouble makers, but mostly just hanging out. When the group unwittingly discovers a plot to destroy the world, however, they decide that they’re the only ones who can stop it.
Neighborhood Watch will be in theaters on July 27.
