Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Christy Lemire,
"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."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"Even if the story meanders in a predictable direction, it features several inspired comic moments."
‑ Todd Jorgenson,
"I'd love to see a movie with these two paired up again, one that doesn't rely on cruelty to garner laughs."
‑ Josh Hylton, Dark Horizons
"It's Byrne who's Rogen's partner in crime, and she's the brains behind the operation ... a refreshing change of pace in a genre that usually relegates ladies to the nag role."
‑ Annlee Ellingson, L.A. Biz
"It's Apatow without the Apatow, all ornaments and no tree."
‑ Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
"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."
‑ Wesley Morris, Grantland
"You either agree to partake in the beer pong of a plot before laying down your money or stay home."
‑ Richard Knight, Windy City Times
"Tries to be a cross between "Animal House" and "Old School" but, sadly, is more like a second-rate "Van Wilder" sequel."
‑ Michael A. Smith, MediaMikes
"Even the snobbiest snobs in Neighbors turn out to be closeted slobs, and it's much funnier as a result."
‑ Margot Harrison, Seven Days
"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."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"It's gross, all right, but rarely funny -- unless jokes about alcohol-laced breast milk is your thing."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Though Nicholas Stoller's shortest movie to date, Neighbors is as unfocused and undisciplined as anything within the director's seriously erratic filmography..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Bad Neighbours makes the occasional comedic stumble but thankfully, it has more than enough energy to make it to the finish line."
‑ Matthew Toomey, ABC Radio Brisbane
"The good news is that with Neighbors, you get the movie you're promised, and it's funny; the better news is that Neighbors is also so much smarter than that ; its high points far outshine the low ones,"
‑ James Rocchi,
