Why all the hate? Since when is vulgarity cause for negative reviews? (by viktor-hammarberg)
Okay, first of all I'd like to state that I rarely review films because I tend to think IMDb does a great job giving people a general picture of how good/bad a movie is, and the mixed reviews tend to allow for a pretty balanced perspective. But what the f-bombing f-bomb is going on here?I went through pretty much 5 pages of 1/10 reviews of this film and then I just exploded with frustration. I had to interrupt this copycat streak. It goes to show that it's in peoples nature follow the herd and if they see enough negativity they'll convince themselves that's how it is. This <more>
movie is obviously not targeted at the old people writing these reviews, nor the young people following their lead to appear "intelligent" or whatever they're trying to achieve. Since when is multiple usage of the f-bomb a plausible reason to dislike a movie? I am in complete shock.I watched this movie sober, late at night, by myself and I laughed out loud a multitude of times and I rarely laugh when I watch comedies alone even if I find them funny.The dialogue was f-bombing hilarious, witty and extremely clever. The much used f-word adds authenticity and flavor in an comically exaggerated scenario. I personally use the word almost equally much in casual conversations with my friends. Obviously things are exaggerated though, otherwise you'd be making a documentary.Based on all these negative reviews, I guess you could say that many fail to realize and appreciate when things are intentionally lame and intensionally exaggerated to the point when it almost doesn't make sense, but since it is intentional it in fact does make sense. The movie makes use of a lot of satirical elements and is in a sense is making fun of people who doesn't get this type of humor. I, for one, love Seth Rogen and personally think this is one of his best. "The Hangover" which is praised by so many people for example, I re-watched it the other day and holy s-bomb is that humor outdated. I did not even smile. Zach is good, but unfortunately it's been used to the point where I want to vomit. THAT is a stupid movie, this movie is actually made by someone who's so intelligent most people don't even get it and render it stupid and immature. Humour is evolving as quickly as technology, and like 9GAG, if you're not active or within that atmosphere many of the jokes will be almost impossible to grasp or seem extremely lame, but lame is the game. This in my opinion is a very small piece of the dawn of a new era of humor. If I could define this movie I would call it a comically exaggerated satire of both early marriage, frat life and friendship. The message is there, but I guess a lot of people get scared off by the constant swearing and profanity to look past it and not take it so f-bombing serious.I loved this movie and it scares me to see that the average reviewer is on an intensely different page, and has failed to take the movie for what it is. I'm with the critics on this one.10/10
I saw the preview for it and was already in love with it. Obviously it's not the best movie I've ever seen, but it wasn't a waste of money. If you had a problem with this movie, disliked it, or was one of those a-holes that demands their money back, then yeah, it wasn't for you. But obviously it wasn't made for people with sticks up their butts. If you can become a teenager again and take a joke, then you will find this movie very funny. It didn't feel too short nor too long, and there were jokes throughout the whole movie. Everyone in my theater was busting up and <more>
having a good time, so if you left and hated it, I'm glad. Seth Rogan, Zac Efron, and Dave Franco were a great trio that made a great comedic movie!
Don't get people's negativity (by chris_rowe-881-168820)
I will never understand why people slate films like this, comedies are never going to have Oscar winning performances or scripts, so to the people who come and review films like these I think why go in the first place, you watch different types of films for different reasons, comedies to laugh, romantic films for dates etc etc.....The main reservation I have with comedy films recently is that most seem to have all the best bits in the trailer and the rest of the film is kinda flat, this was not one of those at all. I laughed from start to finish and so did my girlfriend.I'm not the <more>
biggest seth rogan fan, I liked a few of his films and hated others but he was awesome in this, a real down to earth guy you can relate to, his wife played by Rose Byrne was also very funny, women tend to have comedic roles toned down in films but she was as good if not better than rogan. Their acting was good, they clicked well and seemed like a couple most could relate to.Then comes the frat boys, led by zac effron Christopher mintz plasse and Dave Franco who were all superb at what they did, considering they were all 6-10 years older than their roles they played them perfectly. Good chemistry between the group. Also had some great cameos including Lisa kudrow as the dean. The casting and acting were great. The actress who stole the show though was Stella played by twin babies, she is the cutest baby I have ever seen and was really funny. Zac effron although begrudgingly is one fit dude, he seems like a decent comedy actor as well, I loved 17 again so maybe this could be a more common role.Being English I don't fully understand fraternities and the American traditions and I'm unsure that a university would purchase real estate in a suburban neighbourhood knowing it to be a loud party filled mad house. But either way I don't care about how something may or may not happen it was a good plot and worked well throughout. Zac and seth were great together! The overall chemistry was great and the film looked so much fun to make.I loved this movie there are easily 15-20 hilarious moments which had some cinema goers clapping that never happened when I saw the snoozefest gravity which is a supposed masterpiece everything is there to make a good comedy film, chemistry, relate-able characters, a plot that if it happened to you you probably would act similar to how they played it! Start off as cool neighbours before entering all out war.The flat bits in the film where there's more dialogue were fine, it never felt slow or boring, the hilarity was well worth the wait. The film is easily the best comedy in years. I won't say much more than if you've been disappointed with recent comedies you won't be by this, go to the cinema or wait for DVD cut ages 10-30 will love this! Maybe even the older folks to, ignore the low reviews and scores , people have lost their sense of humour!9/10 must see
The neighbours may be bad but this movie certainly isn't. (by ledek7)
Bad Neighbours is a movie which revolves around shocking the audience with grotesque yet frequently hilarious scenes. The movie features Seth Rogan, who is again picking up a role which features him as a weed- loving man child who, surprisingly enough, has a child with the amazing Rose Byrne who plays a responsible yet hilarious adult who is not afraid to get a bit weird at times. The movies weirdest scenes, which I shall not ruin for you, features some of the most funniest dialogue I have ever heard. Zac Efron and Dave Franco star as the "Bad Neighbours", a pair of teen drug <more>
addicts who set up a fraternity next to Seth Rogan's house. When the battle between these two heats up, "Bad Neighbours" has it's best moments. Zac Efron and Dave Franco are brilliant in their roles and while Zac could have played the role as a self-obsessed jackass, he makes himself seem vulnerable and relatable despite the obscene nature of the film. Overall, Bad Neighbours is a hilarious film which never lets the pace go. With excellent actors and a amazing script, this is likely to be the best comedy of the year. 9/10
There are very few actors who I am guaranteed to be excited for and see any movie that they are in, no matter what that movie may be. Seth Rogen is one of those actors. He consistently stars in comedy movies that I consider to be among the best ever made, with the likes of 'Superbad', 'Pineapple Express' and last year's 'This Is The End' to name just a few. Upon hearing about 'Neighbors', I was immediately sold due to the great concept and the excellent cast that also includes the likes of Zac Efron, Dave Franco and Rose Byrne. I'm happy to say that <more>
'Bad Neighbours' doesn't disappoint in the slightest, as it's a contender for funniest film of the year.'Neighbors' tells the story of Mac Seth Rogen and Kelly Rose Byrne who have a newborn baby and encounter trouble when a college fraternity moves into the house next door, led by Teddy Zac Efron . As soon as I heard of this premise, I knew it had the potential to be very funny, and it is. The movie doesn't just rely on laughs though, at various points there wasn't any comedy but I was still engaged because the story is interesting and I wanted to see where it went next. I was also surprised that the movie had some pretty good thematic elements about growing old and the effect that it has on people.The acting is phenomenal, which is as expected from such a great cast. Seth Rogen has impeccable comedic timing as always, and I suppose you could say that he's playing the same type of character that he usually does but he does a good job doing it, so who the hell cares? Rose Byrne is also great, this was a very different role for her than what I've seen her in before the 'Insidious' movies and 'X-Men: First Class' but she proves she can do comedy really well. Zac Efron is excellent as he always is; if you're someone who still thinks he's a bad actor because of the 'High School Musical' movies then get over yourself and accept the fact that he's one of this generation's finest young talents. For me, it was Efron and Dave Franco who stole the show, with Efron providing a lot of the laughs and Franco giving the movie some much needed humanity.Although this movie may not be as funny as, for example, last year's 'This Is The End', there are still some moments that are absolute comedic gold, including a fight scene towards the end of the movie that's absolutely incredible. Nicholas Stoller gives great direction, I was particularly impressed by the party sequences, which included amazing colour schemes and some very stylised cinematography and direction. While 'Neighbors' may not be an instant comedic classic like many other Rogen movies are, it's still incredibly funny and is a must see.
I saw this film on opening day with a friend because I was bored, and did not expect much. After seeing the trailer I thought "this movie will make me laugh a bit, but will probably suck overall", and I was mistaken. I was pleasantly surprised by how funny this movie was surprisingly funny. I am not a big Seth Rogen fan, but he was funny. The biggest stand-out performance was from Zach Effron. He has come a long way since being a Disney star, and he was the reason for a good number of laughs I got from this film. I see a lot of reviews on here complaining about how dirty and vulgar <more>
this film was... did none of you read the rating? This movie is rated R for "pervasive language, strong crude and sexual content, graphic nudity, and drug use throughout"... I mean, for God's sake Rogen and Effron get in a dildo fight which was hilarious .If you are offended by such things, a prude, or easily offended in general, you probably should not see this film. If you do not care about that, and expect a fun movie full of laughs, cussing and partying, this is a film for you. Hope you enjoy.
It didn't take itself too seriously, and I found it fairly funny. There are PLENTY of comedian cameos which any modern funnyman or woman aficionado would appreciate. They were all uncredited here on IMDb, as well as in the credits of the movie. wasn't sure if that counts as a spoiler . It's crude, rude, and hilarious. There were a few rough patches where it slowed down, but then the flow continued with it's hilarity not taking it too far. The movie had hardly any self mockery, and the characters were all hate-able and lovable at. Zac Efron, David Franco and their frat cohorts <more>
do a good job at being unlikeable frat-douchers; Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne did a wonderful job at being the cute in love couple. The humor was on point. The one thing I did not appreciate was the glorification of a certain drug pushing a modern hot topic. The soundtrack was AWESOME.I'd say watch it in a theater, seeing it on a the average LCD TV at home wouldn't do the movie justice I saw it not knowing what to expect, as I did not previously see any trailers nor any promotional things for the movie.
To our surprise, there is quite a bit of heart in this f***in' hilarious comedy (by moviexclusive)
The year was 2006 – street cred wasn't the first thing you'd associate us with if we told you we were fans of High School Musical. The Disney Channel TV movie was a fine example of a guilty pleasure. We couldn't stop listening to the soundtrack, singing along to stars Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens' duet "Breaking Free". The successful hit made stars out of the former real life couple. Two sequels followed, the two broke up and life happened. While Hudgens wasn't at fortunate, Efron went on to, well, win a Best Shirtless Performance at the recent MTV Movie <more>
Awards.Yay? The 26 year old actor embodies the term "guilty pleasure" for female viewers at least . And that was why we thought this Nicholas Stoller directed comedy might turn out to be a bland concoction of a few chuckle worthy jokes. How wickedly hilarious can a movie starring Efron be, considering the fact that there may be market considerations of pleasing his fans?Boy, how wrong we were. The dude who crooned radio friendly hits eight years ago isn't just shirtless in countless scenes to show off his bod, he also warning: parental guidance is advised for the following content beats people up, takes drugs, speaks dirty and makes plastic dildos moulded from his own manhood. Yup, you read things right – that's the reason why this movie is rated R21 for sexual content, nudity and drug use.We should have known seeing how Stoller's past works include the equally raunchy Forgetting Sarah Marshall 2008 , Get Him to the Greek 2010 and The Five Year Engagement 2012 . The English American filmmaker is also known for his writing credits in comedies like Yes Man 2008 , The Muppets 2011 and its recent sequel Muppets Most Wanted. No pretty boy is going to stop him from making a fun comedy which has been absent from the cineplexes for a while.Efron plays the leader of Delta Psi, a fraternity known for their outrageous parties. When a young couple moves in next door, little do they know they are in for a life changing experience. With Seth Rogen on board to come head on with Efron in a battle of, well, many things, you can expect an outrageous barrel of laughs that will keep you adequately entertained throughout the movie's 100 minute duration.The comedian who has made us LOL-ed with his performances in movies like Superbad 2007 , Zack and Miri Make a Porno 2008 and Pineapple Express 2008 takes on the role of a man who suddenly realises what "growing up" has done to his life, and besides making us laugh, has us thinking about what "moving on in life" means. His on screen wife is played by Australian actress Rose Byrne Insidious, X Men: First Class , who flexes her comedy chops. A gag involving breastfeeding is one unforgettable sequence you won't get out of your head for some time.The cast also includes Dave Franco 21 Jump Street, Now You See Me , Christopher Mintz Plasse Kick Ass, Pitch Perfect and MADtv funnyman Ike Barinholtz, all of them leaving us chortling with different gags. As for Efron, let's just say he has left an impression with us with his portrayal of a teenager who's hanging on to his "best years" behind ditch those sappy chick flicks like Charlie St Cloud and The Lucky One, dude . We were actually moved by the themes explored in the movie. When the movie ends with the shirtless Efron and Rogen outside an Abercrombie & Fitch store, we were left pondering where life has taken us. Do we really have to choose between a drool worthy six pack bod and a flabby beer belly?
