It’s never pleasant to watch a person you once respected lose touch with the skill or talent that made them so great, and that’s what we’ve been witnessing with Robert De Niro and, to a lesser extent (in that our respect for him was considerably less), Sylvester Stallone. As Robert De Niro has been lending his presence to lousy family comedies (Meet the Fockers, Little Fockers, etc.) or failed attempts at reclaiming his once gritty persona (Righteous Kill) with only a few good projects scattered in between, Stallone has been doing the same with revisits to his boxing (Rocky Balboa), soldier (Rambo), and action star (The Expendables, Bullet to the Head) glory days. And so, with their collective dignities besmirched by their refusal to let go of their glory days, they’ve given in to a film like Grudge Match, a film whose very premise plays out »

Directed by: Nicholas Stoller
Running Time: 1 hr 35 mins
Release Date: May 9, 2014
Plot: New parents Mac (Rogen) and Kelly (Byrne) start a war against the fraternity bros (Efron & Franco) who move in next door.
Who’S It For? Fans of Rogen or even Efron willing to settle.
Nicholas Stoller’s Neighbors is a rager like nearly every film produced by the duo of Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg, their first since last year’s celebrity soiree This Is the End. It has lampshade-hat equivalent of craziness, with frat dudes and dudettes packed to the ceiling as they exhibit outrageous R-rated shenanigans that make Bluto’s zit popping look like a kindergartener’s gag. But alas, if only Neighbors were as funny as it is outrageous, showing that an original spin on familiar content doesn’t guarantee a joke’s success. »
