Neighborhood Watch - Teaser Trailer
Director Akiva SchafferYear 2012Genre(s) Comedies
Evan Trautwig is a manager at Costco. One day, his friend, who is a security guard, is murdered. After the police fail to find his friend's murderer, Evan has the idea to form a neighbourhood watch, to look for criminals.
He is soon joined by fellow neighbour Bob Finnerty. Bob is suspicious of his teenage daughter's dating life and wants to use the neighbourhood watch to check up on her. Evan and Bob are soon joined by two more neighbours.
Gradually, the group becomes less and less about 'neighbourhood watching' and more and more about spending time with each other. However, the four friends soon find themselves in over their heads when they uncover a secret alien plot. It will be up to the neighbourhood watch to stop this once and for all.
Neighbourhood Watch stars Jonah Hill; he turned down a role in Quentin Tarantino's upcoming film Django Unchained due to his commitment for the film. Richard Ayoade also stars; he is well known to British audiences for his role as Moss in the IT Crowd, plus roles in comedies The Mighty Boosh and Garth Marenghi's Darkplace.
The film is directed by Akiva Schaffer, who writes for Saturday Night Live and is one third of comedy hip hop troupe The Lonely Island. This will be his second feature film, following on from Hot Rod, which was released in 2007.
