When a night security guard at the local Costco gets killed, Evan (Ben Stiller), the manager of the store decides to start up a neighborhood watch club to find the killer and protect others. Three other suburban residents decide to join the neighborhood watch as an excuse to escape their regular lives one night a week. But when they accidentally find out their town is being overrun by aliens in human skin, they have no choice but to save their neighborhood.
I went into this movie without knowing too much about it, as a matter of fact the only thing I knew was the title and the starring actors. I was honestly surprised when I found out this movie was about aliens. A comedy science fiction flick, at best. Overall, it was very mediocre. It's worth a rent, or perhaps no more than $5 if you choose to buy it.
