YMMV: The Watch
- Harsher in Hindsight: The shooting of Trayvon Martin by a member of the neighbourhood watch caused plenty of problems for the film.
- Hey, It's That Guy!: Drill Sargent Hartmann is killed by aliens.
- One-Scene Wonder: R. Lee Ermey's role.
- What The Hell Casting Agency: The eternally humble Richard Ayoade seems to feel this way about himself in this film, according to several interviews; his wife even told him that he was going to look like a guy who'd won a contest to be in a movie with three celebrities. Ironically, most reviews seemed to feel that he was the funniest part of a generally bad movie.
