Bad Neighbours

The director of Forgetting Sarah Marshall brings Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne into this no-holds-barred neighbours-at-war comedy as a happily married couple settling into parenthood, forced to confront the noisy douchebag fraternity that's moved in next door fronted by Zac Efron (and his abs). Co-starring Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Lisa Kudrow.

Mac (Rogen) and Kelly (Byrne) are doing their best to feel young, cool and spontaneous, even though having a baby has cramped their style. When a fraternity moves into the neighbourhood the couple fear the worst. Frat leaders Teddy (Efron) and Pete (Franco) make a good first impression, but the student's constant partying proves unbearable and a battle between neighbours commences.

Russian playright Anton Chekhov's rules of drama dictate that if a two-storey bong is mentioned in the first act, then it must be smoked by the third act. Despite failing to adhere to this rule (said bong is sadly never seen in action), Bad Neighbours is a hoot of a film that delivers way more laughs that we've come to expect from a studio comedy.

Some Really Funny Moments

As someone who hadn't seen the original Bad Neighbours, I wasn't sure what to expect. There were some truly cringe worthy and laugh out loud moments. I really loved the dynamic between Seth Rogen, and Rose Byrne and their screwy manic love and parenting style. It absolutely made me want to see the original.

Not Too Bad Neighbours...

A fun, filled, film with a few laugh out loud moments (the hidden airbags are fantastic!) but overall not too bad but not incredibly good.

Bad Taste

This movie wasn't particularly funny, clever or original. Rose Byrne is much better than this film, Zac Efron is a better actor than this part and Seth Rogen is funnier than his character. While it's an ok film to waste some time on, I definitely wouldn't recommend anyone to spend money to see this on the big screen. The story has been done a thousand times...

predictable

the scenes and lines were pretty predictable, the cast were good and I felt it was exactly what I had expected but come on ....... I think more time was spent of the dumb story line of the smart frat brother planning for his life afterwards then it was on the antics (like the airbags exploding) a movie like this was perfect for its target audience and the...

Standard Yankee student stuff

Wasn't any more than expected. Didn't deliver any new gags from the lead actor then he delivers elsewhere - get some new jokes! I'm sorry for the baby who had to put up with cr@p (smoking, drinking, swearing, rooting and most of it badly) when this movie was shot. Maybe I'm getting old!

Promises laughs and delivers more

Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne have never been more lovable or funny as new parents facing off against a frat house next door. The comedy is over-the-top but it has never worked better. A packed cinema was laughing consistently throughout. Equal focus is given to the two main characters of the fraternity, Zac Efron and Dave Franco, a surprisingly well-written...

Bad Neighbours

Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne star as a newly married couple that have invested every penny they own into a new home. Their breezy, easy-going neighbourhood is turned into a battle of the ages (literally), after a fraternity called Delta Psi, renowned for their ridiculously outrageous parties, moves in next door. They ask their young leader Pete (Zac Efron), to...

Don't waste you time

There should be a "trades descriptions act" when something is sold as a comedy but it isn't and this moves isn't a comedy. If you think lots of swear words and students behaving badly is funny then go ahead, waste your money. I found reason to smile only four times in the whole full-length movie, the TVNZ evening news does better than that. The only, yes...

Lots of laughs and student pranks. See plenty of Zac with his shirt off.

A heated, hysterical battle between Apatow smarts and Animal House smirks. Subtlety takes a hazing, but humour emerges with honours.

After a shaky start it blossoms, with inspired visual gags in excellent poor taste.

Not since Bridesmaids has an American comedy channelled the chortles like what transpires here... churns up so many waves of big, booming laughter.

A few big laughs but weakly drawn characters mean a film that is enjoyable enough in the moment but then quickly forgotten.
