Time to bro out.
Mac (Seth Rogan) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) are a young married couple with a 6 month old baby. They are enjoying their house and their new grown up life, then they get new neighbors in the form of a fraternity lead by Teddy (Zac Efron) and Pete. (Dave Franco) At first, Mac and Kelly party with them and promise not to call the police if they get too loud, but once they break that promise it becomes an all out war between houses.
At first I didn't think I'd enjoy Neighbors. The thought of douchey college guys playing pranks on a young couple with a baby just didn't sound interesting. (Maybe because I hated frat boys in college and I am part of a young couple with a baby) But that's what ended up making this movie so funny. The fraternity is made fun of, a lot. The things that Mac and Kelly talk about were at times relateable as well. And, you know, I enjoy a good dick joke. This film had plenty.
Neighbors is easily the funniest movie of 2014 so far and it feels like Zac Efron was born to play Teddy. I was hard on him when I saw The Paperboy, but he shines here. The always reliable Rogan, Byrne, and Franco do as well. Plus there's a Workaholics cameo that I loved.
