Coming to us from Universal on May 9th is Neighbors, the new Nicholas Stoller comedy starring Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, Zac Efron and Dave Franco. We caught the film last week at SXSW and gave it a favourable review. And from this newly released clip, it’s easy to see why this one is going over so well with audiences.
Neighbors follows Rogen and Byrne as Mac and Kelly Radner, a young couple who find that their peaceful, suburban life is turned on its head when a frat, led by Zac Efron’s Teddy, moves into the house beside them. Of course, hilarity and hi-jinxes ensue as the frat is determined to stay where they are, and the Radners are hellbent on getting them to move out.
Personally, while I found the film to be very, very funny at times, it was also a bit too over the top. That »

Everyone hates their cable bill. Mine for Internet, cable, and alarm was $194 last month, and I don’t have any premiums. But what makes it that high? Probably channels that you don’t watch, like Espn, which clocks in at $5.54 of your bill each month, though the next closest is TNT at $1.33. Yet I don’t watch sports. I have no idea what channel Espn is on, and yet I can’t opt out of the sports package.
Reno 911!’s Thomas Lennon has been cast as the neat freak Felix in Matthew Perry’s remake of The Odd Couple. Felix always read gay of course, and Lennon has a tendency to play characters that way, so I do »

Zac Efron, Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne - they're some of comedy's coolest names, and they're all in Bad Neighbours. And we've got our hands on an exclusive clip of the comedy everyone's been raving about at SXSW, featuring the first time they all meet - with Rogen and Byrne on a mission to get Efron, Franco and their frat mates to think they're cool, whilst simultaneously trying to stop them having noisy parties. Suffice to say, things get awkward. Check out the clip below. Bad Neighbours is in UK cinemas from 9 May 2014.

Following its debut at the 2014 SXSW Festival, Universal Pictures has released the first clip from Neighbors. Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne star as young married couple Mac and Kelly, who move in next door to a fraternity house, whose members make their lives a living hell. Before this neighborly rivalry ensues, Mac and Kelly introduce themselves, along with their newborn baby Stella, to frat boys Teddy (Zac Efron) and Pete (Dave Franco). Watch as the seeds of collegiate warfare are planted, with Teddy subtly hitting on Kelly while Mac reveals that he and his wife can get quite rowdy when Game of Thrones is on.
Neighbors comes to theaters May 9th, 2014 and stars Zac Efron, Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, Dave Franco, Jake Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Chasty Ballesteros, Lisa Kudrow. The film is directed by Nick Stoller. »
One of the risks that comes with living the city or suburban life is being an unwilling participant in the "new neighbor" lottery. Over the years, I.ve been lucky enough to live next to some very nice people and only one loud psycho woman with a revolving door of boyfriends. I can.t say I.ve ever had the displeasure of living next to a fraternity house, as is the case in Nicholas Stoller.s new comedy Neighbors. But from the looks of this new clip, it looks like I would probably handle things exactly like Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) do. At least initially. Courtesy of Yahoo! Movies, this early clip features Mac and Kelly introducing themselves to Delta Psi brothers Teddy (Zac Efron) and Pete (Dave Franco), and you can see Christopher Mintz-Plasse.s Scoonie in there as well. It seems to be a successful »
Seth Rogen likes to smoke ... and tell! The actor stopped by Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live" with Dave Franco on Tuesday, where he opened up about which big stars he's smoked marijuana with. Check out the video above to see his candid confessions! Can you believe the "Pineapple Express" star has never smoked with James Franco? Or the fact that Franco doesn't even smoke?!But smoking "dope" wasn't the only hot topic -- Andy Cohen also got Seth to spill about his thoughts on Justin Bieber. "In my opinion, Justin Bieber is a piece of s--t," Rogen said. "He seems like he's obnoxious and ungrateful, insincere, and he puts people's lives at danger and overall he acts like a piece of s--t."Now Seth, tell us how you really feel! The Biebs has recently come under fire for his bad attitude during a deposition involving his body guard, and for »

If anything was learned by Seth Rogen's appearance on "Watch What Happens Live" Wednesday (March 12), it's what he should become a regular fixture on the show. He talked about everything from his fellow Hollywood stoners to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's reaction to the "Bound 3" music video he did with James Franco.
Still, the biggest moment came when Cohen asked Rogen about his thoughts on Justin Bieber. Back in January, Rogen tweeted some unkind words about the pop star, who is having a bit of an image problem these days. "Justin Bieber is a piece of s***," he tells Cohen. "He's obnoxious, he's ungrateful, he's insincere." What's worse, Rogen explains, "He puts people's lives in danger."
Chances are the pop star won't be too happy about the diss, »
Seth Rogen did not hold back during his guest appearance on Watch What Happens Live last night. The funnyman stopped by Andy Cohen's clubhouse with Dave Franco and the two spilled some pretty ridiculous tidbits about their friends in Hollywood. During a skit called "Spill the Herbal Tea," Andy asked Seth to reveal a list of the co-stars that he's smoked weed with—and his answers were pretty surprising! Here's what he revealed about the list of famous faces he's acted with: James Franco: "This is really depressing for me to say…I've never smoked weed with James Franco because he doesn't smoke weed. That's why he's such a good actor! It's »
You might expect an R-rated comedy starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron, directed by the guy who made Forgetting Sarah Marshall and The Five-Year Engagement, to be loose and sloppy, like Rogen’s torso. But Neighbors turns out to be tight and lean and eminently watchable, like Efron’s torso. It’s boisterously funny, yet also focused and perceptive. Who knew a Rogen movie could be all of those things at once? Rogen and the suddenly indispensable Rose Byrne play Mac and Kelly, new parents working through the mixed emotions of loving their adorable baby girl while missing their old, fun lives. After a few lukewarm gags along the usual lines (they want to go to a late-night party but fall asleep instead!), we get to the crux of the matter as a fraternity moves in to the house next door. Under the guidance of dude-bros Teddy (Efron) and Pete (Dave Franco), the frat behaves exactly the »

Dave Franco and Christopher Mintz-Plasse are gearing up for another "You're So Hot" video. After releasing the first two raunchy installments in 2011 and 2012, the comedic duo reveal they'll soon be debuting the third. "It's sooner than you think," Franco said this weekend at the SXSW premiere of their new movie, Neighbors. Yes! "I want to say it's going to be the wildest one because of this twist that I can't really reveal," Franco said. "But it's hard to be wilder than playing Lady and the Tramp with each other and we kiss and then throw up on each other." The actors also gushed about making Neighbors, an R-rated flick (in theaters »
Based on the merits of being a “How To” guide for aspiring parents, Neighbors is a one star movie about two adults selfishly putting their own insecurities before the well-being of their newborn baby. We’re talking some gratuitously debaucherous middle-aged partying including magic mushrooms, sword fighting, shot ripping, and every other fraternal stereotype possible. Wildly inappropriate, of course, but with Nicholas Stoller’s outlandish direction, Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien watch their screenplay turn into a riotous Greek life comedy that’ll make you question every responsible decision you made throughout your college career. Stoller himself admitted that only one member of his production team actually lived a fraternity life in college, so you can imagine the generalizations and stereotypes blown wildly out of proportion, but it’s all in the name of comedy – and the most epic rager that frat life could possibly imagine.

Basking at the premiere of his new movie and smiling and waving at the screaming fans who shivered in the rain to catch a glimpse, Zac Efron was having a good night in Austin, Texas. "I've been blessed to have the opportunities I've had," Efron told the audience Saturday at the premiere of Neighbors, which hits theaters May 9, at SXSW. "It couldn't have happened better. I'm stoked." Despite the icy rain and dropping temperatures, fans took pictures beside two huge party buses sporting Efron's image from the movie and packed the red carpet to see Efron, Seth Rogen, Dave Franco and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. »

Austin - Many of the modern comedies that are considered classics become part of the pop culture lexicon, endlessly quoted by fans in all sorts of different contexts. I have a strong suspicion that "Neighbors" is going to be one of those films that is simply absorbed whole by audiences. Not only is it uproariously funny and almost breathtakingly dirty, it is better written than it needs to be on a character level, delivering completely on its premise. Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose) are a young married couple who are adjusting to parenthood, having just moved into their first house. They're at that moment where they still have fresh memories of their party days, but they're settling into a life of responsibility and chafing a bit at the sensation. When the Delta Psy Kappa fraternity buys the house next door to them, Mac and Kelly are determined to try to be the cool neighbors. »

Austin — To premiere at SXSW, Universal’s “Neighbors” decided to forgo the end credits, a final mix, and the aspect ratio correction, but the sold-out crowd at the Paramount Theater didn’t seem to mind. The Seth Rogen-produced raunchy comedy starring Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, Dave Franco and an often-shirtless Rogen debuted to an audience content to heartily laugh.
While the weather outside was both frightful and wet, inside Rogen half joked that the only person out of the near dozen onstage that attended college was producer James Weaver, who also doubled as the sole member of a fraternity.
The film follows the Radnor family (Rogen and Byrne), who, after having their first child experience the unfortunate circumstance of having a fraternity move in next door (its president is played by Efron). In an attempt to both give their daughter a peaceful environment and yet prove to themselves that »

Lewder, weirder, louder, leaner, meaner and more winningly stupid than anything its director Nicholas Stoller and star Seth Rogen have ever been involved with before, frat comedy “Neighbors” boasts an almost oppressive volume of outrageous gags, and provided that audiences don’t mind the lack of anything resembling a coherent story arc, its commercial potential ought to be enormous. Presented as a work-in-progress at SXSW (though aside from missing credits and a few continuity quirks, it appears largely finished), “Neighbors” is an unchecked riot that should go a long way toward selling antagonist Zac Efron as a credible adult actor, though as with anything involving the Greek system, a bit more moderation from the start might have prevented a few headaches afterward.
Rogen and Rose Byrne star as Mac and Kelly, a young married couple whose infant daughter has prompted a move into the suburbs. Aside from the disruption to »

Austin -- Neighbors -- Universal's upcoming raunchfest that pits Seth Rogen against Zac Efron as warring dad and the fratboy-next-door -- debuted a nearly finished cut at South by Southwest on Saturday night, where the hard-r comedy's balls-out humor killed in a packed Paramount Theatre. (More on the very funny film at THR's rave review.) The ribald mood spilled over to the post-screening Q&A, where Rogen and Efron were joined by director Nicholas Stoller, and fellow cast members Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Ike Barinholtz. SXSW Review: Neighbors Also on hand were screenwriters Andrew Cohen and Brendan O'Brien, as well

Now in its 27th year, SXSW is like the late bloomer who stuns his parents by announcing his basement-based online venture is now worth a million bucks. The Austin, Texas-based festival isn’t glamorous, like Cannes, or corporate, like Toronto, or even insistently anti-Hollywood, like Sundance. Compared to its more-pedigreed rivals, SXSW is simply more chill. It puts the festive back in festival — there’s a giant music and growing interactive element as well — and artists of all sorts are eager to come to the party. Jimmy Kimmel Live will broadcast there for a week. Lady Gaga will drop in. »

The strongest testament to SXSW’s emergence as a nationally recognized pop culture event is the fact that not one but two latenight talkshows will travel to Austin for a week of shows from the festival.
ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” will join Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” in the heart of the SXSW fest next week. Kimmel will set up shop at Austin’s Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long Center for the Performing Arts for five shows starting Monday. Andy Cohen’s “Wwhl” moves into Ballet Austin Academy for five telecasts starting Sunday.
“Wwhl” was the pioneer last year in bringing the show to the fest, a move that generated some of the most-watched segs in its history. Cohen is taking a more-the-merrier view of Kimmel’s trek to the Lone Star state — so much so that Kimmel is set as the primary guest on Sunday’s edition of “Wwhl. »

Elton John’s annual party definitely has one of the best guest lists, and the 2014 bash didn’t disappoint!
Joining the list this year for the Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Award Party was none other than our very own Sid Mallya. Other invitees included Heidi Klum, Donatella Versace, Dave Franco, Vanessa Hudgens, Jane Fonda, The Kardasian sisters among many others. Sid, in fact, caught up with one of his favourite actors : Neil Patrick Harris : Barney of the sitcom How I Met Your Mother. Sid is currently in La looking at pursuing opportunities in Hollywood.
Hosted by Sir Elton John and the AIDS Foundation, it is one of the most high-profile parties in the Hollywood ever since it was first hosted in La in 1993. The annual party contributes to the foundation fund by its high priced ticket sales which are given by invitation only and a celebrity auction. »

For Neighbors, Dave Franco and Christopher Mintz-Plasse said that they got together with Zac Efron and bonded before the film, like a real fraternity. They got drunk and made up a secret, homoerotic handshake for the frat. “So, it’s basically there’s a little hand move, but then one person drops to their knees and mimes giving a blow job to the other person. The person on their knees takes it in the mouth and then spits it to any nearby brother.” We also will get naked Mintz-Plasse butt and fake giant penis, along with Dave Franco baring his butt during a sex scene. But what about Zac?
In the world of “right to discriminate laws” Idaho, Tennessee and South Dakota have all joined Kansas and dropped their efforts, while the senate in Arizona just passed their version by a 17-13 party line vote.
