I didn't know what to expect after seeing some of the reviews for this but I thought I'd give it a go and and glad I did, in places it's really funny. I didn't know it was about an alien invasion, just thought it was about some inept neighbourhood watch group. However, it turns out it's very good and well worth watching and easily worth four stars.

OK, some people clearly love this one, but will you? Here's a quick test: do you find the idea that alien blood might taste like cum inherently hilarious? Yes? Then this is the film for you! If not, then it isn't.

I saw the trailer at the cinema a while back and thought 'Gosh, this looks good, I must see it'. It looks like the trailer won an award, but the film won't (not any it wants to win, anyway!) Fortunately, I missed seeing it at the cinema, because I can get my money back by selling the disc.

When there's more product placement in a comedy film than jokes, you have a problem. This film has lots of product placement - how much did Costco pay? - and not enough actually funny jokes. It started life as a PG-13 Ghostbusters clone, but at some point someone said 'Let's be much ruder! And give it to someone who can direct short sketches but not a feature!' Both of those were mistakes. The director has a cameo as one of a trio of men masturbating each other at an orgy, and probably enjoyed that much more than I did watching the film.

The bit of the Ghostbusters clone that did remain was the idea that having a big FX-based ending was the funniest thing they could do. No, it's not. And if anyone is surprised by the 'twist', I will be amazed.

The two reasons for giving it two stars rather than one are Richard Ayoade (even if too much of the culture clash ended up in the deleted scenes) and R Lee Ermey.

So see the trailer for this - it is good - and if you want a recent adult comedy that is actually funny, see Horrible Bosses instead, with the bonus that you get to see Kevin Spacey reprise his role in Swimming With Sharks.

With this cast it should have been better/funnier but its an amusing enough film. I live in the real world but I did not think the amount of cursing was
helpful in making this film any funnier. If these guys want to know how to use the F word in a funny context all they had to do was check out some of Billy Connollys' live on stage DVDs

Surprisingly entertaining film with some of Hollywood's best funnymen and Richard Ayoade; who comfortably walks away with the film with an absolutely brilliant performance as the new boy to the neighbourhood doing his best to fit in by joining the local watch just in time for an alien invasion.

Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill are all reliably funny as you would expect but this really is a Richard Ayoade film as he steals it from under their noses.

After the night watchman (Joe Nunez) at Costco was brutally murdered and his skin removed, Evan (Ben Stiller) forms a neighborhood watch in his peaceful Glenvue, Ohio community. Unfortunately not many people show up to join the group and all have their own reasons and issues.

Evan- Costco manager. Very straight and needs to be in charge. Takes things seriously, but doesn't take care of business with his wife (Rosemarie DeWitt).

Bob- (Vince Vaughn) Likes to drink and share his man-cave with his friends. Has a teenage daughter (Erin Moriarty) he keeps his eye on.

Franklin- (slimmed down Jonah Hill) Has the best lines. He quit school to become a policeman. He failed the written exam, physical, and the mental health screening. Wants to be a vigilante. Lives at home with his mother. Couldn't help think about George Zimmerman and Richard Jewel.

Jamarcus- (Richard Ayoade) He is from England and has a Korean girl fantasy.

The four guys are considered a joke. When they discover the aliens, they get up for the task.

I loved the use of the classic rock sound track which included The Doors, J. Geils Band, and Chris Cross who provided a laugh as the phone tone for the salty R. Lee Ermey. The humor rolls with the lines like when Bob asks Franklin, "You failed the police exam, is this illegal?"

There was a lot of good humor. Unfortunately there was a lot of unnecessary crude humor, as the story was funny without it. It didn't need cheap laughs.

PARENTAL GUIDE: F-bombs galore. Brief sex and nudity.

Good idea but a bit of a missed opportunity. It's not terrible but it's too formulaic and the 'by the numbers' writing means it's not actually particularly funny for the most part. Shame because the cast deserved better.

Look this is not a great film but it does what it say's on the box. It is funny, it has a good cast with Vince Vaughn on particularly good form, its rude and has aliens in it. This was enough to keep me and my teenage son amused for the duration although it did flag in the middle. Where it does stand out was the volume of penis jokes they managed to squeeze into the 102 minute running time. They are a bit hit and miss but the sheer number of them mean some hit the mark! The supporting cast is also strong especially Billy Crudup as the strange neighbour and Will Forte as the hick town cop. In fact the least memorable character is the Ben Stiller one as the film moves on. Worth catching but maybe not at full price.
