THE WATCH is a sci-fi action comedy in which a group of men set up a neighbourhood watch scheme after the death of a local supermarket employee. What they discover is an alien invasion plan being hatched in their town.

Language

The film contains frequent strong language ('f**k') and one use of very strong language ('c**t').

Sex

There are crude sex references throughout, including verbal references to oral sex and visual and verbal references to alien slime having the texture and taste of semen. In one scene, members of the neighbourhood watch unexpectedly uncover a suburban orgy party. There is some brief sight of sexual activity and nudity, including a topless woman bouncing up and down on top of a man, a man thrusting behind a naked woman, and a group of men apparently masturbating themselves and then each other.

Violence

When humans are attacked there is little detail in the violence, although there is some sight of the bloody aftermath of violence. When violence occurs against aliens, however, it is very unrealistic and fantastical in nature, featuring splatters of green slime as they are shot or when they explode.

There are a number of scenes in which one of the characters plays with his weapon of choice, a butterfly knife. However, he only uses it once in order to threaten a villain. There is also a passing reference made by the same character to possibly having some marijuana in his pocket when he's stopped by the police.
