Got Protection?

Four everyday suburban guys come together as an excuse to escape their humdrum lives one night a week. But when they accidentally discover that their town has become overrun with aliens posing as ordinary suburbanites, they have no choice but to save their neighborhood - and the world - from total extermination.

The Watch - Nachbarn der 3. Art

Vier ganz normale Kerle aus einem kleinen Städtchen treffen sich abends, um als nächtliche Bürgerwehr für Sicherheit in ihrer Nachbarschaft zu sorgen. In erster Linie haben die Vier so eine willkommene Entschuldigung, einen Abend in der Woche ihrem wenig heldenhaften Leben und der alltäglichen Routine zu entkommen und sich als große, mächtige Männer zu profilieren. Eigentlich bekämpfen sie die ganz normalen Lapallien in einer Kleinstadt, das heißt: randalierende Teenager und Ähnliches. Dann jedoch machen sie eine schreckliche Entdeckung: Die ganze Stadt ist infiltriert von Außerirdischen, getarnt als gewöhnliche Mitbürger. Nun sind die Vorstadt-Daddies gefragt. Sie müssen über sich hinauswachsen und ihre Stadt - womöglich sogar die gesamte Menschheit - vor den Invasoren retten.

Voisins du troisième type

À Glenview, dans l’Ohio, quatre banlieusards ordinaires décident de former un comité de surveillance de quartier. Même s’il s’agit surtout d’un prétexte pour échapper à leurs mornes existences, nos quatre héros vont tout de même faire une découverte incroyable : leur paisible petite ville a été envahie par des extraterrestres qui se font passer pour d’honnêtes citoyens. Face à la menace, le sort de leur quartier – et du monde – est désormais entre leurs mains…

Vicini del terzo tipo

Dopo il barbaro assassinio del custode del superstore in cui lavora, Evan decide di mettere in piedi un servizio di vigilanza dei cittadini di Glenview, piccola cittadina dell'Ohio in cui vive. Gli unici a unirsi a lui sono i tre stralunati Bob, Frankin e Jamarcus, uomini più o meno cresciuti che cercano più che altro divertimento e qualcuno con cui passare le serate. Alla fine il gruppo si trova a confrontarsi con un qualcosa molto più spaventoso delle loro possibilità: un'invasione aliena. Tra malintesi, gags involontarie e minacce più che serie, i quattro maldestri diventano loro malgrado l'ultima difesa contro la conquista del pianeta.
