Here you go, fellas! The movie stars Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn , Jonah Hill, and new-comer to American cinema, Richard Ayoade. It was directed by Lonely Island member Akiva Schaffer.WATCH was written by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen

So, go on...talk about it.  

* I should point out to people that if Schaffer  is nominated for Worst Director, and Andy Samberg gets nominated for Worst Supporting Actor/Worst Screen Couple/Worst Screen Ensemble for That's My Boy, that would mean that all three Lonely Island guys have been Razzie nominees  -- Jorma Taccone was already nominated a few years back...

Elizabeth Hartman and Judith Barsi are more talented and beautiful than Scarlett Johansson and Chloe Grace Moretz. Fact.

Worst Supporting Actor: Brendan Fraser/Gimme Shelter and The Nut Job

R.T. (10-15%): "It uneasily mixes sci-fi elements with gross-out gags and strands its talented cast with a script that favors vulgarity over wit at nearly every turn".

@oiram this could be proof that the lonely island should all go back to snl and stick to digital shorts

I just saw it. For your consideration:
-Worst Supp. Actor for Will Forte (also for THAT'S MY BOY).
-Worst Supp. Actress for Rosemarie DeWitt (also for A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN).
-Worst Director.

I thought about that, but the thing is that his performance in ROA was basically a cameo. However, if he does make it to the ballots, I wouldn't be against him being up for the 3 titles.

Well, we're late for the initial ballot, but:
 
http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=neighborhoodwatch.htm - Here's the Box Office Mojo webpage for The Watch .  Its budget was $68 million and its worldwide haul was $67 million.  If the rule of thumb that a movie needs to make double its budget still holds true, this one lost money.
 
Here's the http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the_watch_2012/ - Rotten Tomatoes webpage and the http://www.metacritic.com/movie/the-watch - Metacritic webpage for The Watch.  RT's critic score is 17% and Metacritic's score is 36.  The critics panned this movie.
 
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1298649/ - Here's the IMDb webpage for The Watch .  It's mainly here for the cast & crew, but note the rating.  Usually it's pumped up by all the people who worked on the movie and the people studios hire to pump up IMDb ratings on top of what theater-goers would post.  But it's sitting at a lowly 5.7.  That combined with the low box office means a lot of people didn't care for this movie.
 
So, I haven't seen it.  Was there anything redeemable about this movie?
