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.

I didn't like it
10 May 2014 | by dass-istnumberwangSee all my reviews

Honestly, when I first saw the trailer for this, my immediate reaction was "my god, this looks terrible." But then I saw it getting pretty good reviews from critics *and* viewers, which convinced me to see it. Might be the next Animal House, I thought. It wasn't. It's a lot of low- effort comedy executed unspectacularly. I mean, maybe everyone else started finding run-of- the-mill dick jokes funny while I wasn't looking, but the most I got out of it was a chuckles maybe every 10 or so minutes. And it's not like I have a problem with crass humour, I like South Park (and other Seth Rogan movies, for that matter), this just wasn't funny.
