On the Lookout for The Watch

July 27, 2012

Four of our favorite funnymen have joined forces in one of the summer’s hottest comedies. Jonah Hill, Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller, and British comedian Richard Ayoade play dads who form a neighborhood watch group to escape the tedium of their suburban lives. While on duty, they discover that alien invaders are planning to take over the world and soon find themselves in the ultimate mission to protect humanity.

Throughout the last decade, these guys have left us in stitches with their crazy talent, giving life to unforgettable stories and ludicrous characters on the big screen. As you get ready for the premiere of The Watch on July 27, take a look at some of our favorite comedies starring these masters of the comedic stage.

Superbad
Jonah Hill plays Seth, a hormonally-charged high school senior on a mission to break his losing streak with the opposite sex before he and his best buddy Evan (Michael Cera) head off to college. This Judd Apatow classic is witty and crude, but it’s also a heartfelt tale of friendship with genuine sweetness and honesty.

Wedding Crashers
Jeremy Klen (Vince Vaughn) and John Beckwith (Owen Wilson) are a pair of cynical scoundrels whose favorite hobby is to crash wedding receptions and try to seduce the bridesmaids. When they decide to attend the wedding of the year, their evening doesn’t go according to plan. This comedy gave Vaughn the perfect opportunity to showcase his signature snappy delivery of quotable lines.

Zoolander
In this satire of the fashion industry, Ben Stiller is Derek Zoolander, an airheaded but internationally renowned male model who experiences the highs and lows of the fickle fashion world. Finding himself threatened by rival Hansel (Owen Wilson) and forced into retirement, Zoolander is brainwashed and used as a pawn in the assassination of the president of Malaysia.

Bunny and the Bull
In this witty British comedy, Richard Ayoade plays the role of the Museum Curator, whom Stephen (Edward Hogg) and Bunny (Simon Farnaby) encounter during their roadtrip across Europe. Lauded as a whimsical tale in the style of Michel Gondry, the film is gives you a good look into Ayoade’s offbeat comic talent.
