Neighbors (2014)

After they are forced to live next to a fraternity house, a couple with a newborn baby do whatever they can to take them down. (IMDb)
Rogen and Byrne’s bumbling young parents shtick here is usually funny and there are a few memorably raunchy gags, but the chaotic party montages get a bit tiresome and do little to cover up what feels like a very thin plot (some self-aware jabs at screenplay cliches excuse its weak movements, but don’t add the needed substance). The half-hearted attempt at serious character development for Teddy is regrettably too little, too late, and the movie isn’t consistently funny enough to make up for it.
6/10 (Mediocre)
