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

Byrne walks away with the film by making Kelly a well-rounded, conflicted person, rather than the film's fun cop who has to tell everyone the boring truth.

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.

If puerile and sometimes just plain stupid entertainment is what you're after you'll get it here; you'll also get plenty of laughs and have little time to think about how predictably it plays out.

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.

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.

The Monitor (McAllen, TX)

The majority of the 96-minute film is the increasingly bawdy, cruel and sometimes illegal hijinks between the parents and the brothers, leading the story further away from reality.

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.

Saporta Report (Atlanta)

Neighbors has little interest in much beyond jokes that seemed dated by the time Hangover 3 was over. It's as stale as 10-week-old pizza.

A harmless Apatowian comedy that works well in its first half yet fails precisely when it tries to offer a deeper, artificial meaning to its story - which is… More

Vaguely amusing that quickly fades as the story drags.

Say what you will about Seth Rogen lead comedies, but of all the comedies coming out today, his are among the best. When the first trailer for the film… 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

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
