        New parents Mac and Kelly become the proud owners of a house in the suburbs, and a newborn baby girl. In order to meet the needs of their daughter, the Randers give up their days of rock concerts and late night drinking for a more grown-up life. Still, the two aren’t complete party poopers. They still like to keep a little spontaneity in their relationship. However, when the house next door is purchased by a fraternity, led by Teddy (Zac Efron) and Pete (Dave Franco.) The Randers discover they’re not nearly as young as they think they are. A grueling 7 days later the couple calls the cops in a moment of desperation for some peace and quiet. Unfortunately, the frat finds out and attempts to make the couples life a nightmare. Unable to sell their house without losing a fortune, the Randers devise a plan to drive the fraternity away from their home.

        Directed by Nicholas Stoller, Neighbors is packed with stomach piercing laughter. Selective audience members might find some scenes offensive, but these scenes play out quickly, as Stroller carries viewers into another side splitting scene. Neighbors is not plot-driven, nor is it the most memorable movie, but it does offer a steady stream of outrageous laughs.Overall, I give this movie a 5 out of 5 for laughs. 2.5 out of 5 for plot, and a 4 out of 5 for acting. If you want to see a movie that has a good storyline, I wouldn’t recommend this. But if you are up for a good laugh this would definitely be at the top of my list.
