The film is titled Bad Neighbours in Australia and the United Kingdom to avoid confusion between the film and the television soap Neighbours (1985). A video was even posted on Universal's Facebook page, which showed Seth Rogen singing the theme from the show. See more »
It's a plot point that there were four airbags stolen from the car. That model (late '90s Subaru Outback) only has two, one each for driver and front passenger. See more »
The premise looks funny. The trailer is mildly amusing. The final product is lame. Unfortunately, the funniest parts are all in the trailer, so after about 30 minutes it just felt like I was sitting around waiting for the next scene I had already seen in the preview.
Some of the scenes seemed like first takes. I felt like I was watching DVD extras. I highly doubt they had a completed script. It felt like they were winging it half the time, which basically means Seth Rogen playing Seth Rogen, which was old ten years ago.
Skip this and go find yourself a midnight screening of Revenge of the Nerds.
