The Watch - Most people wrote this film off as a real stinker of a movie, and I strongly disagree with that. While it might not be your conventional comedy where it appeals to everyone, it is most certainly a guys film. This is the kind of movie you watch when hanging out with the guys and just want to shut the brain down and enjoy yourself for a few hours.
Ted- Upon hearing the premise of a movie about a 35 year old man and his foul mouthed teddy bear I was interested. After hearing it was a Seth Macfarlane movie I was expecting a long episode of family guy. Once I saw the film though it was pure magic. For as outlandish as the movie is, there is that one thing that everyone can relate to. We all had a favorite toy be it stuffed animal or something else that made us feel safe and secure , and this movie shows what happens when you just cant give that friend up.
Seeing the additions of Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger in bigger roles , as well as Chuck Norris and Jean Claude Van Damme really was a thing of beauty. This is every 80's action movie fans dream come true: explosions , gun fights and one liners, what more could you want? Overall the action more than makes up for it and is VERY satisfying to watch.
Not only did it have an excellent plot, but the animation was top notch. Some of the best I've seen yet in my opinion. Great for kids and adults since both will take something from this film, and that is a rare thing.
I will admit, I saw this one out of curiosity and I LOVED it. Not only did I enjoy the film, but it also interested me in reading the books by Edgar Rice Burroughs, and they are amazing. If you have not checked this film out , I suggest it . Most people passed on it resulting in a lackluster box office but I recommend giving it second chance on DVD.
