Bottom Line:

J.R. Johnson

Seth Rogen has planted his face on the new generation’s Mount Rushmore of comedy and after last years hit, “This is the End.” It’s obvious Rogen looks to repeat another successful summer with “Neighbors.”

“Neighbors” follows a young couple (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) as they begin to build their new family in a quiet neighborhood. Unfortunately for them, the house next door just became the home of the craziest college fraternity in town. At first, things seem fine, with the couple not being too far from their college-days, they hit it off with the frat boys next door. But things quickly turn sour. A fierce rivalry grows and the fledgling family has to find a way to get rid of this new terror.

It’s become a common occurrence to find a comedy stuffed with top-tier comedians to help fill out the cast list. After seeing Rogen paired opposite of Zach Effron, chemistry isn’t the first word that comes to mind, but its definitely evident throughout the film. That goes for most of the cast as well. The non-stop ridiculousness leaves an honest impression and that makes it all the more funny.

“Neighbors” is full of raunchy, over the top bathroom gags and one-liners, so the film definitely earns its R-rating and sacrifice some of the story. Then again, this isn’t a movie to watch for character depth. It’s rude, crude and funny.
