Bad Neighbours (2014)
Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne lead the cast of Bad Neighbours, a comedy about a young couple who are forced to live next to a fraternity house after the birth of their newborn baby. Let the battle for the street begin!
When I first saw the trailer for this film I thought it was going to be lots of pranks being pulled between two Adults and a frat house, until one of them moved out…I was wrong.
Plot: Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) are finding it difficult adjusting from reckless adults, to mature adults. Then the frat house moves in next door, causing Mac and Kelly to fight for their mature life. Although the things they do should definitely NOT be called mature, it’s hilarious nonetheless!
Characters: Mac - like most of the characters Rogen plays – likes drug, alcohol, he’s usually got his top off and you see him in a few sex positions.
Kelly is like most mums who didn’t plan on settling down and having a family, but she tries her best. I’ve seen Byrne in a few films but none like this, I thought she played her roll brilliantly.
Teddy (Zac Efron) is the president of his fraternity. He’ll be graduating soon, and all he’s learnt is how to party, causing him to be a bit of a dickhead. But he has his top off (a lot) in the film, so it’s ok.
Pete (Dave Franco) is the vice president of his fraternity, in the beginning he comes across as your usual frat boy, but he’s actually really smart and sweet. He also gets his bum out (it’s worth watching the film just for that scene).
I give this film 4 stars, it wasn't an epic-must-watch-this-over-and-over-again sort of film and there was a few parts were i questioned the sanity of the real parents of the baby in the film for letting her play that roll, but i'd watch it again.
