Nothing makes a movie like a comedy dream team, which is why The Watch is sure to make us laugh, no matter the plot.

Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade come together as a neighborhood watch group who are desperately seeking an escape from the daily drab of their suburban lives. Inadvertently, the crew becomes responsible for saving the world from an alien invasion.

How is the movie -- in theaters Friday -- a reunion for some?

While Hill has popped up in scenes from A Night at the Museum, it is Vaughn and Stiller whose comedic pasts are greatly intertwined. The two are known to run in the same comedy circle and have appeared together on-screen, if only for a moment, in funny films like Zoolander, Starsky & Hutch and Anchorman.

Their most notable encounter, however, was arguably in the 2004 flick DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story.

For anyone who doesn’t remember the film, it was a brilliant sports parody about a rivalry between Peter LaFleur’s (Vaughn) small, unsuccessful gym, Average Joe’s, and White Goodman’s (Stiller) fitness giant Globo-Gym. It all comes to head in a crucial dodgeball tournament, leaving only one group on top.

“Vince and I had a really fun time working on Dodgeball together... It had been a while for us, so it was exciting to have a chance to do something new together and being in a totally different kind of relationship, too,” Stiller said about the duo’s reunion in a recent interview with Moviefanatic.com.

But in case you need proof of how funny the comedy powerhouse can be, Celebuzz wants to bring you back to one of our all-time favorite Vaughn-Stiller scenes.

Watch the hilarious Dodgeball clip above to see Stiller use the art of intimidation, and a band of Purple Cobras, to scare Vaughn and the rest of the Average Joe's.

Does that make you want to see The Watch now or rent Dodgeball?
