Rating:
R
Now in Digital HD. Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade experience a close encounter of the funniest kind in this hilarious, no-holds-barred comedy that’ll keep you laughing ’til the cows...explode! There’s trouble brewing in Glenview, Ohio...a seemingly safe and quiet Midwestern suburb. That’s why four civic-minded citizens, armed with flashlights, walkie-talkies and spiffy new jackets, have teamed up to safeguard the community. But when the guys discover extraterrestrial aliens living among them, and no one believes their story, they’ve got to kick things up a notch in order to save their neighborhood — and the world — from total annihilation!
