Teddy is the President, and Pete is his right hand man, and they're quick to accept friendship when Kelly and Mac introduce themselves as the neighbors.

User Reviews

Ever been to one of those parties where everyone is having a great time, but you can't wait for it be over?

That's this movie.

I don't want to completely hate on this movie, but essentially what this entire movie is, is a bunch of actors getting together and having a fun time while accidentally making a movie in tandem.

There are some big, big laughs here (most of them from Zac Efron surprisingly) even if the trailer spoiled the best ones, but I just don't find Seth Rogens "he's a big fat guy who loves weed" Shtick funny anymore, he's been doing it for doing for too long.

Plus most of the jokes are obviously improvised, like they just walked onto set that day with a rough idea of how the scene should play out and just decided to wing it, and for about every 1 joke that hits, there's about 5 that don't.

I also hated the huge lapses in logic, what about the other neighbours? wont the noise coming from the fraternity irritate them as well? and why do these parents think that a discarded condom would immediately give their baby HIV? and I don't think the Dean of the university would have been so blasé about a complaint from the public.

What difference did it even make to have them be a fraternity anyway?, The story would have worked just fine if it had been a group of loud, obnoxious young people. The only reason it was a fraternity was to attract college audiences.
