At its core, this movie contains all the familiar conventions of a raunchy college comedy: crude sex jokes, rampant drug use, gratuitous nudity, grossout gags, goofball supporting cast, wild partying, insane pranks. But there are also a number of things which this movie not only does differently but especially well, elevating the film beyond the usual sophomoric comedy.

One noticeably unique facet is the strong female lead. The wife character is not relegated to simply backing up her husband, or playing the safe and sensitive voice of reason. Rather, she might be even more deranged and aggressive than her male counterpart in terms of pushing the outrageous hijinx. It's certainly refreshing to see a woman allowed to participate with such decadent abandon in the typically male-dominated frat-house genre.

The movie is also gratefully lacking in the usually sappy and maudlin romance/soul-searching subplots that usually weaken and drag on these types of comedy free-for-alls. There are a few tender moments in there, but it basically just lets everyone go crazy for maximum laughs.

Another clever part of this film is the gray morality which all the main characters inhabit. There are no clear good guys vs. bad guys, as all the major players waver back and forth in their actions and likability. At varying points, every character in the film vacillates between being a righteous hero and a vile villain, just depending on the degree of their latest, insane shenanigan.

The low reviews here are really astounding, especially since the most mediocre films seem to regularly receive over 4 stars on Amazon. I'm not sure what kind of movie the haters expected to see, but this movie delivers on its promises. The progressive story structure aside, this movie is ultimately just a very funny flick. I guess you either like this kind of comedy or you don't.

Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) just had a baby and try to convince themselves that their life is not over and they are not old. When a frat house moves in next door lead by Teddy Sander (Zac Efron), their delusion is challenged as the film breaks down into our couple attempting to sabotage the overly noisy frat house, the one that invented toga parties and beer pong.

The humor for the most part was low brow ,crude, and juvenile. It was predictable humor which translates into unfunny. The swearing and drug use was forced and unnatural. This is a me-too crude comedy that failed to stay above the water of a flooded basement.

Zac takes his shirt off, a plus for the ladies, but they must sit through Seth showing off his mammoth butt during a sex scene.

This movie was terrible. The chemistry between the main characters was bad and we saw way too much of it! The characters were shallow, ignorant, and really quite annoying. We turned it off without even finishing it.

Theatrical review. There may be spoilers.

There are plenty of surprises in this new comedy beyond exploding car airbags. Seth Rogen is hilarious as usual, but I was a bit taken aback with Rose Byrne who practically steals her scenes. They make a bit of an unusual married couple. As Mac and Kelly Radner, they have a new baby, Stella (Vargas twins) who gets in her own very funny bits as well. Byrne even keeps her native Australian accent which may come as a surprise to some American audiences.

The new family has just emptied out their bank accounts to buy a cute bungalow in a fictional college town where Mac went to school. The house next door is for sale as well and the Radners were hoping another young couple would be moving in. Much to their surprise, the moving truck shows up and the house becomes the home of one of the college's bad-boy fraternities. Now I don't know where this fictional town is but how is it a fraternity is allowed to move into a neighborhood comprised of families and college professors?

The president of the fraternity is Teddy (Zac Efron in a nice nuanced performance) and Pete (Dave Franco) is his VP. The Radners, sensing the possibility of rowdiness, decide to make friends up front and show up to meet the boys. All seems to go fine at first, especially after Teddy invites the reluctant couple in to "show them around." We now learn that the Radners were/are first class party animals themselves before they had to grow-up. You know get a job, raise a family. The frat boys now feel they have the green light since one of their neighbors seems cool with it. No thought is ever given in this movie as to whether other neighbors might not be comfortable with daily all-night parties.

Robert Frost once wrote, "Good fences make good neighbors." The new Seth Rogan film, Neighbors pokes numerous holes in that philosophical statement and illustrates why Frost's New Hampshire home was very, very well isolated.

This is not the first comedy film to go by the title Neighbors. In 1981, Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi followed up the success of The Blues Brothers with a dark misfire about a suburban man (Belushi) whose life is flipped upside down by his obnoxious neighbor (Aykroyd). The film was a production nightmare and was also the last teaming-up of Belushi and Aykroyd before Belushi's death. It was also a missed opportunity from a simple and potentially brilliant film idea.

Now, Rogan and co-writer Evan Goldberg seem to have righted a wrong by bringing their signature raunchy wit to their latest production.

Rogan plays Mac Radner, a new father, who with his wife Kelly (Rose Byrne), is trying to adjust to a new responsible life now that the carefree days are behind him. Caring for a newborn proves to have its challenges but none measure up to the challenges of having a fraternity move in to the house next door. Not wanting to be the square neighbors who have to tell the kids to, "Keep it down!" Mac and Kelly decide to play it cool at first and let these frat brothers know that they are still hip and young. They approach fraternity president Teddy (Zac Efron) and awkwardly suggest he and his buddies keep the noise down. Within days, however the frat parties are out of control forcing Mac to call the police and report a noise violation. It may as well have been the assassination of Arch Duke Ferdinand because it's an all out war from that point forward.
