A very typical Seth Rogen comedy.,
This review is from: Bad Neighbours [DVD] (DVD)
The plot in "Bad Neighbours" is as basic as they come. Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) are new parents who still dream of the wild nights of their youth. And yet they are terrified when the fraternity (led by Zac Efron and Dave Franco (i.e. brother of James Franco) moves in to the house next to theirs. Initially, the neighbours try hard to bridge the generation gap, but it does not take long for the new parents to realise that their daughter needs sleep, and the boys next door just cannot keep the noise down. The war ensues.
The film is okay. Seth Rogen does what he always does (including showing his naked backside), Zac Efron does what he always does (i.e. goes around barechested). The humour is uninventive, rough and juvenile. All the swearing, violence and drug use were over the top and unnecessary (I am surprised nobody mentioned the constant drug abuse and nights out of young parents!).
