'The Watch' Review

The Watch was once called Neighborhood Watch, but after the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case, Fox decided to change the name to be sensitive. Unfortunately, the studio still has a movie on its hands that celebrates dumb characters firing guns, which made it a little hard for me to laugh in light of the Aurora shootings. But my problems with The Watch have nothing to do with any similarity to recent tragic events. No, the movie's a mess on much more basic levels. My Deadspin review explains.
