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

18 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I read Belushi's Biography and was surprised to learn of "Neighbors", his last movie. I tracked it down just out of curiosity, as I'm also a Berger fan, and had read the novel that the movie is based on. I liked the novel, and wondered about the movie. Although the movie does depart from the novel, it's a great movie in its own right. It's not the sort of humor that everyone would enjoy, and it does poke fun at suburban America. In a lot of ways, I think this is an even better film than the celebrated "Blues Brothers"- but it's more subtle and less of a cartoon than that one. Belushi and Akroyd are great in this film, and it's very funny. I found myself laughing out loud. I wish someone would release it on DVD so more people would get the chance to watch it.
