Neighbors  2014 7 out of 10

If you are a Seth Rogen fan than you are probably going to like this movie.  He basically plays the exact same character that he plays in all his other films.   His characters have the range of a toaster with one setting.  Maybe all his movies take place in a shared universe where he was cloned.  He is the stoner that now has a kid and his party days are in his past and yet he still wishes he was cool.  Instead the necessities of life are slowly turning him into the old guy that wants to yell at the kids to get off his lawn.   The silly plot of the movie is that the house next door to Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne has been sold and a wild party crazy frat has moved in.   They try to make piece with the frat when they move in but end up having to call the cops on them after a party keeps them and their baby up all night.   This doesn't go over well and it turns into a War or Roses situation with their new crazy neighbors.  The vengeful between the frat and the couple are the entire plot of the movie.   If you have seen the trailer (see below) that is exactly what you get in the movie.   The couple and the frat play pranks on each other that slowly escalate into all out war.  One of the best examples is when the frat puts air bags in his chairs at home and work. 

I found this debauchery entertaining as Seth Rogen and his wife struggle to the battle Zac Efron frat boys.   The humor is raunchy and immature, but again it is a Seth Rogen movie.   For fans of this film it will be getting a sequel--that will probably be more of the same expect in the next one they join with Zac Efron to battle a Sorority.

If you have not been a fan of Seth Rogen's films than I would say avoid it.
