Consensus: With plenty of bawdy humor evenly spread between its well-matched stars, Neighbors earns its R rating -- and filmgoers' laughs.

Christy Lemire

The young married couple does something cruel, and then the idiot frat guys next door respond, and back and forth it goes. I laughed, but not uproariously and not often enough.

Globe and Mail

Rogen's always a dominating presence, but [Byrne], who showed her comic chops in Bridesmaids, comes close to stealing the movie here, in an uncorked performance full of volatile, liberating mischief.

James Robert Douglas

The ferocity [Byrne] brings is almost enough to compensate for the limp approach the film takes to its own premise.

It's Apatow without the Apatow, all ornaments and no tree.

Wesley Morris

One of the great surprises of Neighbors is both the gentle way with which it handles a nimrod party animal like Teddy and how good Efron is at playing him.

Rob Gonsalves

Believable, individualized people and playful filmmaking.

Denver Post

As as tensions escalate, Teddy and Peter's partnership proves just as central and perhaps more vulnerable than Mac and Kelly's. Score one for growing up.

Christian Science Monitor

It's gross, all right, but rarely funny -- unless jokes about alcohol-laced breast milk is your thing.

Jeff Beck

"Neighbors" may not be an all-out disaster, but it is an unfunny comedy that just can't find any jokes that really hit the mark. As a result, it's a rather dull film that wastes a potentially hilarious premise.

I keep hearing this is a good movie, but I think I am just too old for this party crap. I suspect the good reviews from women my age are for all the topless… More

Not charming enough, clever enough, amusing enough or even believable enough to amuse effectively. Rogen does Rogen. Rose Byrnes tries hard to not play to… More

Vaguely amusing that quickly fades as the story drags.

An average though completely predictable comedy concerning a couple (Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne) attempting to leave their youth behind and start adulthood with a… More

In light of the recently released "The Interview" and its predecessors, it's nice to see Seth Rogen be in something that he didn't also… More

While Neighbors is fairly entertaining, it goes so far over the top at times that I was disgusted more so than laughing. Seth Rogen is his typical self here,… More
