Storyline

One man's quiet suburban life takes a sickening lurch for the worse when a young couple move into the deserted house next door. From the word go it is obvious these are not the quiet professional types who *should* be living in such a nice street. As more and more unbelievable events unfold, our hero starts to question his own sanity... and those of his family. Written by Brad Jackson

A unique and offbeat comedy
11 October 1998 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

Neighbors is a great comedy. The humor is a bit offbeat and you may have to have a really good sense for humor to get the hilarity of whats going on. Dan Ackroyd is great as Vic, the wacky next door neighbor. Some people may think the film is a bit strange, but that's what makes it so funny. The novelty of the film is the best thing about it. Undoubtedly, the greatest moment is when Vic and Romona (the new neighbors) are sharing a spaghetti meal with Earl and Edith Keese, the conservative couple next door. Vic claims the meal came from a new restaurant called "Ceasar's Garlic Wars" Earl grills Vic as to where the food came from, because he saw Vic making the food next door in Vic's kitchen. What ensues is a hilarious tongue-tying dialogue between slick Vic and a very sceptical Earl. You'll understand when you see it. It's hysterical! The fun only begins there, as Vic and Romona and the rest of the clan have more hilarous run-ins with each other through out the night. It definitely is a must see for all lovers of comedy!!
