Excerpt: No es la mejor de las comedias de nueva hornada que llegan de Estados Unidos, pero hace reír hasta el punto de sepultar buena parte de sus defectos. Carcajadas y (relativas) proclamas sobre el fastidio de la madurez.
Excerpt: The high concept is broad and simple: “FAMILY VS. FRAT,” as the ad line rather simplistically summarizes. But it’s about more than that — and hints at some interesting possibilities for comedies of its ilk.
Excerpt: Director Nicholas Stoller was the man who unleashed the unexpected funny in Rose Byrne in “Get Him to the Greek” and pairing her with Seth Rogen as a couple of young marrieds not quite ready to give up on their college years proves her comic abilities once again.
Excerpt: There are enough pop culture references to fuel trivia night at the popular college bar, and a few good laughs do break up the tedium. But bottom line, “Neighbors” isn’t epic enough for a frat house wall. This isn’t your father’s “Animal House,” but that would have been funnier.
Excerpt: No matter if it won’t be the studio comedy of the summer season to beat, it’s loose, quick-witted, and very much in the raunchy, R-rated spirit and Apatowian baliwick of director Nicholas Stoller’s previous output.
Excerpt: Neighbors reminded me of the 70s and 80s heyday of National Lampoon sex comedies. Its only mission is to string together as many dick jokes as possible for ninety minutes and gracefully send you on your way.
Excerpt: A rowdy college fraternity moves next door to a young suburban family, with expected results, in Neighbors, an inexplicably well-reviewed comedy that strings together a series of mean-spirited gross-out gags in lieu of an actual story.
