A young couple (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) have just settled into their roles as parents when a rowdy fraternity moves in next door (they burned down their previous house, the first offense against the university’s three strike policy). After ingratiating themselves with their new neighbors and their hunky leader (Zac Efron), they are soon at war when the fratboys learn the couple has phoned the police on them during one of their all night ragers. Neighbors is more of the same old same old boring bullshit, a brand of film that ceased being funny years ago but continues to roll off of the Apatow assembly line. The film consists of a generously estimated 1.5 laughs during its excruciating duration.
