What hides under small-town heaven? Costco junior manager Evan Trautwig (Ben Stiller - do I hate everything he does?) voices overview of his contentment with life in small town Glenview Ohio USA summer, his generous volunteer enthusiasm beyond above. "Good things happen to bad people". Until night security guard friend, new citizen, warns noise "They gave me a gun, okay? And they didn't teach me to use it properly .. back the f- up, okay?" Run, scream, smush, bloody handprints.
One weekend morning, he waves wife for her NY weekend away from "super-boring", arrives to police tape barrier, pal "ripped apart by a wild animal .. one sick son of a b-ch, took the victim's skin". After "f-ck", "screw", I'm not in the mood for school football game, where he asks "Did anyone here cry themselves to sleep last night? .. Tonight my tears have turned to fists .. I'm forming a neighborhood watch to solve the murder .. keep a suspicious eye".
Three join: Bob (Vince Vaughan) "really f-ing it up", Franklin (Jonah Hill) "beers .. bust up heads, vigilante, militia" dropout cop wannabee , and Jamarcus (Richard Ayoade) nerd Brit "most people are disappointed when they meet me .. happily divorced .. fantasy .. sucks my balls". "Doesn't matter what brought us here .. we're all united." "Drinks, Lazy-Boys, flat screens .. pool table". "massages ass cheeks" Drunk night with drunk guys. Tedious rap Boyz in the Hood. As promised - lewd, crude, and rude.
They prowl spooky back yards for evidence, until a growling monster shakes the bushes. Does he look scared, or possessed? Evan sings "Hello" in "friendly tones". With sign language, he offer gum "gum, gum for you" and horrendous giant drools open-jawed and extends claws. "That was stressful".
Spoilers: Through a burning demolished streetscape, Evan concludes "I used to think I had it all. But .. what was it all about without friends .. b-ch .. d-ck .. blow me .. d-che-bag .. sh-t guy turns out to be your best friend .. testicles .. we are not alone .. never fear, the neighborhood watch is .. watching .. for aliens. Skip back to find where Evan smashes it dead with a garden gnome. They snap souvenir shots to "Na, na, na-na-na, na". During "Make it last forever", it comes back to life. "OMG".
