#272 - Neighbors
I like Seth Rogen, his movies are hit or miss, but he seems like a genuinely good dude who wants to have fun, but actually puts effort in unlike recent Adam Sandler comedies. Unfortunately, Neighbors leans more toward the “miss” category. It’s not that it’s bad, but for an R-rated comedy about a frat house moving in next door in a quiet suburban neighborhood? I expected them to go crazy.
There are a few good laughs, but the trailer made it seem like it would be this way over-the-top prank war, but aside from the airbag gag that they show in the trailer, it’s all pretty tame.
Definitely worthy of a rental, but not sure if it’ll hold up on repeated viewings like This is the End. But Baby Stella is the cutest damn thing you’ll ever see, so at least there’s that.
