Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller, & Jonah Hill in 'Neighborhood Watch'

After the jump, I’ve got the trailer for Neighborhood Watch, Fox’s summer comedy starring Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill, and Billy Crudup, directed by The Lonely Island’s Akiva Shaffer and written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Superbad, Pineapple Express, Green Hornet).

Suburban dads form a neighborhood watch group to get time away from their families, only to discover a plot to destroy Earth.

I’ve been waiting for a movie to properly capture the Lonely Island experience, but it hasn’t quite happened yet. Akiva Shaffer last directed Hot Rod, which was originally written as a Will Ferrell vehicle, and it kind of showed. Another Lonely Island guy, Jorma Taccone, directed MacGruber, which was underrated, but still not quite Lonely Islandy enough. Neighborhood Watch is listed as being “sci-fi” on IMDB, so hopefully it’s a lot weirder than this trailer would seem to indicate.

Between the years 2001 and about 2005, somewhere in the afterglow of Zoolander and Old School, if you would’ve told me there was a new Vince Vaughn/Ben Stiller comedy out, I would’ve been so excited that I literally ripped my dick off, lit it on fire and threw it at you like a firecracker. These days, it barely warrants a shrug. Man, getting old sucks. But then, so did Couples Retreat.
