Movie review score
2/5

What’s it about?
What happens when a do-gooder (Ben Stiller) and his hapless vigilante Neighbourhood Watch buddies (Jonah Hill, Vince Vaughn, Richard Ayoade) discover suburban disturbances are actually being caused by killer aliens? Dick jokes. Lots and lots of dick jokes.

 

What did we think?
Ben says: Almost 30 years ago, “he slimed me” was funny. Likening green goo to semen, repeatedly? Not so much. Despite its likeable lead buffoons, this formulaic sci-fi comedy is less than the sum of its – oh god I’m going there – private parts.
