Now that you've seen it, what did you think? "You called about your neighbors?" Now playing in theaters everywhere - the new comedy Neighbors, directed by Nick Stoller (of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek and The Five-Year Engagement previously) starring Seth Rogen & Rose Byrne and their baby vs Zac Efron & Dave Franco, with Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Carla Gallo thrown in there, too. It's about what happens when a nice couple with a newborn baby suddenly receive new neighbors - a wild fraternity house. It looks wild, but does it deliver? Were all the best jokes in the trailers? Is it any good? Once you've seen it, leave a comment below with your own thoughts on Nick Stoller's Neighbors.
Editor's Note: I'm still waiting to see it mtself, but for now I'll include this final quote from Ethan's very positive review: "Neighbors is the perfect summer comedy, delivering big laughs from a riotous war of mother and father versus brothers. Seth Rogen and Zac Efron make for an uproarious comedy duo that works just as surprisingly well as Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in 21 Jump Street. With a script that feels fresh, funny and not too bombastic, director Nicholas Stoller has succeeded in crafting a side-splitting battle for the ages. Neighbors is raunchy with plenty of dick and weed jokes, but not overwhelmingly so, and it has a warm bromantic heart at its core." Rewatch the latest red band trailers here. Sounds like it's a winner.
What did you think of Stoller's Neighbors? A hilarious summer comedy or forgettable waste?
