This Is The First I've Heard Of "Neighborhood Watch" And I Am Already Sick Of It

OMG, you guys... seriously... this is like SOOOOOO FUNNY! ThIS car is driving all slow-mo and people are looking all like "day-um!" but it's the suburbs instead of like New York or something and it's totally not that kind of car; and there's TOTALLY a rap song playing but they're all dweeby white dudes! LOL!



In the time it took to watch that trailer, you have already seen, shrugged and immediately forgot about this movie about five times.

I saw this trailer, or something else, for this before. I pretty much had the same reaction.

I really can't help but wonder who actually goes to see this.

I'm so tired of ben stiller and vince vaughn

BUT I love richard ayoade and jonah hill

So I wouldn't dismiss it just yet

The Lonely Wizzard said...

I'm interested, but only because Richard Ayoade. I can't believe that Moss would make a bad movie.

Anonymous said...

I agreed with you until moss showed up. The whole joke of the trailer works for him, and no-one else

Mack said...

It's just another harmless family comedy, I don't really see the harm/pain of it

the fu....

How can I forget it? It's with Moss from the IT Crowd!

Sam said...

When I hear the "Don't look at him, look at me." bit at the end, It reminds me of an Abbot and Costello of Three Stooges routine. Gave me a chuckle. But the rest of the trailer seems a bit, not like a movie.

Also they should really have a scene like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrT_dg-sRCc

I would be dreading this too... but Richard Ayoade is in it.

I think I have to give the benefit of the doubt to this film as I sincerely doubt he would attach himself to anything he didn't find funny. And from the IT crowd and Submarine, I'd suggest his sense of humour is pretty good.

Also good to see he is breaking more into the mainstream.

Man, I thought Jonah Hill was done with this shit. Now we get to look forward to seeing 'Academy Award Nominee Jonah Hill' whenever he does a shitty comedy.

As for the trailer:...Eh, I can't summon any rage. Yes it looks painfully stupid and generic, but so do millions of other films. It needs to do something special these days to summon rage from me.

Sidebar: That 'white dudes do white dude things to rap music' thing that was HILARIOUS in Office Space? I'm with Bob: IT'S NOT FUNNY ANYMORE!

Sanunes said...

From what I saw they cherry picked elements and actors put them in a blender and made this movie, just like any typical Hollywoood movie anymore to try and keep it safe and make a profit.

McIntosh said...

Richard Ayoade is white now?

It looks like it could be terrible, but Ayoade is enough of a genius to make me give it the benefit of the doubt, as Bagswill said.

Ben Stiller can really disappoint me at times. I really liked Tropic Thunder but every time he puts out another crappy movie(Does any even remember Tower Heist?) or milks the "Meet the Parents" series for everything its worth with the same "Fockers" jokes, it makes me wonder how someone who put themselves out there and took a lot of risks(like for TT) could keep making these safe,by the books movies?
On the side note, Bob, have you checked out the new Herman Cain ad? I'm sure you have a lot of things to say about it, and I am really curious about you reaction. Here is the link->http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYN-Awrq3og

According to the Wikipedia page, the plot of the movie involves them uncovering an alien plot and having to fight an extraterrestrial invasion.

Daemon said...

Moss? MOSS!?

NOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Gavin McQue said...

Yeah, it's kind of hard for British audiences to forget this trailer because while Americans might see "The other guy" Brits are seeing Moss from hit TV-series The IT Crowd.

Wendy said...

MOSS! You're sooo much better than a shitty Ben Stiller vehicle. Noooo!

Jetamungo said...

Woof, that looks terrible.
Stupid movies, be more funny!

Bob, have you ever watched a movie which you found thoroughly forgetful, but really didn't want to forget? Rhetorical question, I don't actually expect you to answer.

The International, from 2009, is a movie that's pretty much an overt attack on big bank corruption.

The plot of the movie, the subject it deals with, or the action itself, is no worse or less interesting than a classic such as "the third man", at least theoretically. I really thoroughly enjoyed myself watching it, and it has some amazing set pieces.

But by god I couldn't remember it at all merely 6 months after watching it. Meanwhile, a shitty ass movie like the da vinci code is so thoroughly stuck in my brain that I could reasonably accurately recount the entirety of the plot if you gave me an hour, a pencil, and a few pieces of paper.

You should do a big picture on that subject. Movies that are worth remembering, but which you cannot remember =P

McIntosh said...

Wait so it's a sci-fi film about an alien invasion, it's directed by Akiva Schaffer (of Lonely Island), and it has Richard Ayoade (of Garth Marenghi's Dark Place and IT Crowd) in it? Sounds pretty interesting now.

Oh, it's written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Crap.

"Is the notion of something seeming not to "fit" completely foriegn to you? Do you look at "rapping grandma" skits and go "I don't get it, it's entirely plausible for octagenarians to be fans of Public Enemy?"" -- MovieBob

DiR said...

Yes, trailer, Reno 911 was a very funny show; I remember the 'look at me while he talks to you' scene, too.

Nice of them to make the only black guy a mailman. I suppose that's supposed to be part of the joke?
