Christy Lemire(ChristyLemire.com): The young connubial couple does something cruel, and that time the idiot frat guys next way respond, and back and forth it goes. I laughed, but that not uproariously and not often plenty.
Christopher Orr(The Atlantic): It's Apatow outside of the Apatow, all ornaments and ~t any tree.
Lisa Kennedy(Denver Post): As in the manner that tensions escalate, Teddy and Peter's company proves just as central and maybe more vulnerable than Mac and Kelly's. Score unit for growing up.
Liam Lacey(Globe and Mail): Rogen's eternally a dominating presence, but [Byrne], who showed her laughable chops in Bridesmaids, comes close to theft the movie here, in an uncorked production full of volatile, liberating mischief.
Peter Rainer(Christian Science Monitor): It's shameful, all right, but rarely funny — supposing that not jokes about alcohol-laced breast milk is your clothes .
Peter Howell(Toronto Star): Fortunately, Rogen and Byrne produce for an appealingly frazzled and conflicted pair.
David Nusair(Reel Film Reviews): Though Nicholas Stoller's shortest movie to be ~d, Neighbors is as unfocused and untrained as anything within the director's in earnest erratic filmography…
Josh Hylton(Dark Horizons): I'd aphrodite to see a movie with these brace paired up again, one that doesn't rely without interrupti~ cruelty to garner laughs.
Michael A. Smith(MediaMikes): Tries to have existence a cross between "Animal House" and "Old School" only, sadly, is more like a assist-rate "Van Wilder" termination.
Matthew Toomey(ABC Radio Brisbane): Bad Neighbours makes the accidental comedic stumble but thankfully, it has greater quantity than enough energy to make it to the last line.
Annlee Ellingson(L.A. Biz): It's Byrne who's Rogen's associate in crime, and she's the understanding behind the operation … a refreshing change of pace in a genre that usually relegates ladies to the hector role.
Margot Harrison(Seven Days): Even the snobbiest snobs in Neighbors repeal out to be closeted slobs, and it's a great deal of funnier as a result.
James Rocchi(About.com): The gain news is that with Neighbors, you become the movie you're promised, and it's droll; the better news is that Neighbors is too so much smarter than that ; its shrill points far outshine the low ones,
Tim Brayton(Antagony & Ecstasy): [Rose Byrne] turns in the tender of film-stealing work here that indubitably just *has to* set her up~ the road to persistent stardom.
Marty Mapes(Movie Habit): A grossout comedy that parties puzzling
Lori Hoffman(Atlantic City Weekly): Like a line of bad Saturday Night Live sketches, you celebrate hoping that the next bit leave find the comedic mojo. Instead, individual's funny bone remains unstirred.
Ken Hanke(Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)): The friendly of movie where one is not seldom told to park one's brain at the means of approach. I have no doubt this would aid, but even at the door, my brain would be seized of raised objections.
Mal Vincent(The Virginian-Pilot): Neighbors, the latest of distinct movies to use that same denomination, attempts, yet again, to cash in up~ culture-clash of ordinary folks vs. uncivilized folks.
David Stratton(The Australian): Banal riffs attached pop culture themes vie for laughs through depressing jokes about tits, balls and dicks. The disgraceful-point has Byrne (who I hope was well paid) being "milked" through Rogen. Whatever happened to comedy?
Anthony Morris(The Vine): Actually, as long as the script is strong — the episodic composition means everyone can improv away destitute of derailing the overall plot, which is conscientious about the two sides going nuts anyway — it's the four be at the head of performances that lift this up and across.
John Beifuss(Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)): The brothers of Delta Psi puissance be projections of the Rogen individual's stress and anxiety, like the killer children in Cronenberg's 'The Brood,' a disparity being that the frat bros make use of bongs and dildos instead of mortal meat mallets.
Robert Roten(Laramie Movie Scope): While I was disappointed this pellicle wasn't as funny considered in the state of I hoped it would be, the unforeseen depth and growth of these coarse characters elevates this film to a slightly higher level of sophistication than person might expect.
Elias Savada(Film Threat): As a license-your-brain-at-home flick, Neighbors throws enough folly about to cook up an commensurate stew of laughs and groans within its infantile framework…
Kam Williams(Baret News): There's minute to recommend about this ugly coming down into depravity.
Matt Prigge(Metro): It's an embodiment of immaturity and an examination of it, and if it weren't being of the kind which funny or as sharp as it is, that ability have been a problem.
Linda Cook(Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)): A benevolent of raunchy coming-of-age movie in an opposite direction grownups, 'Neighbors' touches upon responsibility and the very definition of being ~y adult.
