Neighbors (2014)

Neighbors (2014)

( released internationally as Bad Neighbours)

American comedy flick starring: Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, Dave Franco, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse

Director: Nicholas Stoller

Mac (Seth Rogen) and his wife Kelly (Rose Byrne) are a young couple with a newborn daughter who have normal lives until Delta Psi, a fraternity known for their outrageous parties, moved next door.

Of course parties are associated with noise and that causes friction between the couple and the fraternity's leaders, Teddy (Zac Effron) and Pete (Dave Franco).

The film is basically about the couples multiple failed attempts to get the Fraternity out of their neighbourhood. Teddy probably hates the couple because they remind him of his future after school

It's hilarious with raunchy jokes, it's mindless slapstick comedy ( lactating mother, Robert Deniro- themed parties) It touches on the rite of passage from a college party person to the responsible role of parenting

You'll enjoy it if that's your thing- but I just didn't feel the comedy after a while. I felt the flick lost me even though it was just 90 mins long.

It got a good score following critical reviews though
