The Watch was originally called Neighborhood Watch before the 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot to death by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman in Florida earlier this year. Trying to distance the movie from that incident, Fox renamed their comedy to The Watch, which is coming to theaters this weekend. Starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, and Richard Ayoade, The Watch finds four suburban guys forming a neighborhood watch group because a security guard was found murdered at the local Costco store.
moviesblog.mtv.com – It's all well and good that Ben Stiller works consistently as the prolific writer/director/actor/all-around funnyman that he's made himself out to be. And while we're happy about all of his upcoming projects like this week's "The Watch" and next year's "The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty," the movie we'd really like to see him make sooner rather than later is that long-rumored/delayed sequel to "Zoolander." 2 years 8 weeks ago via brucelee
