By all appearances, new parents Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Rose Byrne) are living the American Dream –complete with an adorable baby girl and a beautiful new starter home in the suburbs. Still, the early-thirtysomethings want to believe that they have a modicum of coolness left within them. So when they discover that their new next-door neighbors are none other than dozens of Delta Psi Beta fraternity brothers led by charismatic president Teddy Sanders (Zac Efron), they try to play along and make the best of an awkward situation. But when the frat’s parties grow increasingly more epic, both sides of the property line begin to fend for their turf. The neighbors’ relentless sabotage escalates into outrageous one-upmanship, beginning an epic Greek war for the ages. Also stars Dave Franco and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Neighbors is the Animal House for an era in which food fights seem quaint.
Fresh: This raunchy unrooting of a settled suburban idyll exposes the considerable angst of emerging adulthood with a kind of scatological fervor designed to elicit oodles of inappropriate laughs.
Fresh: There's no doubt the filmmakers want to make us laugh but, in doing so, they also touch upon a theme that many older viewers will find familiar: the rite of passage from a college party animal to the responsible role of a father or mother.
Rotten: Unfortunately, concise comedy gives way to desperation less that halfway through, and we're left with the spectacle of adults embracing extreme immaturity just because they can.
Saw this movie in theater and it was bad. A lot of raunchy, crude humor. A lot of male parts in the movie, if you get my drift. Don’t let your kids see this movie. It wasn’t funny at all and had trouble following the plot of the movie. It made no sense and insulted my intelligence. I don’t understand why Hollywood makes these kinds of movies, but to each his own.
Save your money!
This movie is awful! The acting is lame and the plot (that had potential) dies 15 mins into the movie. Wait for TV.
Not as great as everyone’s making out
I was really expecting this to be an awesome movie and tried to get into it. It’s one of those that 100% has all the funny parts in the trailer. I usually just watch movies to be entertained, not overly impressed with plot/characters, so it’s relatively easy to meet my standards. However, the characters were hard for me to get into — and I’m now in the grown-up stage and was absolutely in the party mode when I was younger. I think for me, all the situations and characters’ personalities were so over the top and ridiculous that I couldn’t get into the rest of the story. Granted, there are some solid laughs, but for me a rental, not a buy.
