Storyline

Kelly and Mac are settling down in a quiet neighborhood with their newborn child, until the frat brothers move into the house next door. 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. Night after night, Mac asks Teddy to lower the fraternity's noise, even accepting the invitation to the party one evening. When Teddy goes back on his word to keep the partying down, Mac calls the police to deal with the problem. The police quickly blame Mac for their presence, and the war begins. As the family feuds with the frat brothers, things get hilariously dangerous and the fraternity ends up on thin ice with their college. After receiving their final warning and being placed on probation, Mac and Kelly pull a prank so ingenious that Teddy and Pete are forced to respond.

Goofs

After Mac and Kelly finish talking to Teddy about keeping the noise down for the first time, they start walking away from the porch. The next shot shows Teddy talking to Pete for around a minute. Teddy then opens the door to see if they want to join their party, but they have only traveled about halfway down the path that leads to the porch. Mac and Kelly should have traveled farther away from the time it took Teddy to talk to Pete. See more »

Has IMDb been hacked?
26 May 2014 | by fergus-17See all my reviews

I'm struggling to understand how this got such good reviews. I usually rate the IMDb score as the gold standard but something has gone seriously wrong here. I did see the trailer, it was good and contained the only laughs of the movie. The movie was truly the most tedious thing I have ever experienced. Why did it get such good reviews from critics and such a high score on IMDb? User reviews here are spot on. Not a single good review. The reviewer above who mentioned he had sat down to more entertaining bowel movements surpassed any joke in the film.

Something is very wrong here.
