The 2014 American comedy ‘Neighbors’ comes to theaters May 9th. For those of you who have yet to see the trailers, the premise is simple: new parents Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) move into what they thought was a quiet neighborhood. That was until a fraternity, led by Teddy (Zac Efron), sets up camp next door. ‘Neighbors’ is full of bad behavior, hilarious pranks and hijinks, and just good old-fashioned debauchery.
After the birth of their newborn baby, a young couple is forced to live next to 50 loud and obnoxious frat guys.
The frat boys are played by Zac Efron, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Dave Franco, and various others. Jake Johnson and Lisa Kudrow also have supporting roles.
The trailers for ‘Neighbors’ shed some light on the film’s plot. The trailers show a happily married couple with a new baby that don’t get out much. They are pleased to see some new neighbors moving in next door, until they realize it’s a bunch of fraternity brothers.
Trying to act cool, the couple asks the lead frat boy (Zac Efron) to “Keep it down.” The brother seems sensitive to their neighbor’s needs, stating “Make sure if we’re too noisy, call me first, don’t call the cops.” He followed with a wink and an “I’ll go tell them to shh.”
After a rowdy house party, the newlyweds have had enough and decide to call the police “anonymously.” This idea completely backfires when a police officer shows up at their door, frat brother beside him, saying “Everyone has caller ID.” The cop call is the beginning to the extreme feuding from both sides, including a comical airbag stunt that blows Rogen sky high.
While the plot may be simple, ‘Neighbors’ is full of great jokes, shocking scenes, and of course the sublime acting that we have come to expect from this talented cast.
If you’re a Seth Rogen fan or just want to see one of the biggest comedies of the year, don’t miss out on ‘Neighbors’ when it opens in theaters May 9th, 2014. The film is sure to bring plenty of laughs, crazy antics, and a slew of great pranks you can use on your own neighbors.
