WHO WILL DIG IT?

Ben Stiller

Do you like the idea of Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, and Jonah Hill hanging out and cursing up a storm? If so, imagine how much you'll like them hanging out, cursing up a storm AND fighting aliens.

THREE GOOD REASONS

  • 1While Ben Stiller has done a lot of family-friendly movies, this rowdy comedy returns him to his R-rated roots.
  • 2Writing team Seth Rogen (yes, the actor) and Evan Goldberg collaborated on the script. Their other projects include "Superbad" and "Pineapple Express."
  • 3If you let the film inspire your imagination, your seemingly boring neighborhood can be transformed into a playground of alien mayhem... in a good way!
