Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade play the members of a hapless Ohio neighbourhood watch team.

Do-gooder Stiller’s cash and carry store manager gets the group together after one of his security guards is found murdered.

But he struggles to turn party man Vaughn, immature police force reject Hill and randy newly divorced Ayoade into zealous vigilantes – until he discovers that a bunch of extraterrestrials are plotting an invasion from the basement of his store.

The film suffers from a slapdash script and sluggish handling, but the cast is still well worth watching.
