Spare a thought for the humble folk of Glenview, Ohio - all they've got between them and an alien invasion is the two blokes out of Dodgeball.
Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn re-team for the first time since the 2004 classic alongside a surprisingly down-the-bill Jonah Hill and Brit newcomer Richard "The It Crowd" Ayoade.
Recruited by Stiller's Evan, a store manager and attentive hubbie with a low sperm count, they're the neighbourhood watch put together after the slashed remains of a security guard were discovered at the local Costco.
As reluctant vigilantes, they patrol the middle class streets in an SUV and are constantly at loggerheads with the town's ineffective, cops led by the dim-bulb plod Sgt Bressman (Forte).
It's a humdrum routine of swigging Bud and peeing in beer cans until it all kicks off when they discover a rangy, goo-spewing alien chomping away at a retired marine in his back garden.
