MOVIE REVIEW: "BAD NEIGHBOURS" (2014)
“BAD NEIGHBOURS” PRESS REVIEW
Do you take stock of your neighbours?
I certainly do, for want of peace and quiet.
Selfish neighbours who indulge in deafening merrymaking can drive anybody nuts.
Rogen and Byrne play this young married couple called Mac and Kelly Radner.
They are basking in the warmth of family bliss, playing proud parents to a cute baby.
Everything seems picture perfect, until a fraternity of weirdo guys move in next door bringing along the parties.
Everybody knows it’s great to be young and yes, the president Teddy (Zac Efron) swears-to-God he will reduce the din of their late night parties.
Yet he is unable to keep up with his promise of bringing the noise down as the night wears on.
Instead the situation gotten worse.
Mac has no alternative but to enlist the cops – and whosh, that’s where everything turns topsy-turvy.
The blossoming neighbourly friendship is now damaged, with both sides savagely declaring war on each other.
This is the crux of the story, the battles of two disgruntled neighbours.
“Bad Neighbours” could have been another raunchy comedy offering sex, drugs, profanity and swear words in the style of The Hangover and Bridesmaids.
However, director Nicholas Stoller delves one step deeper.
Laugh all you can, but there is a lesson about growing up to be learned here.
For fans of the shirtless almost-naked Zac Efron, it can be just another pure slapstick.
For the older viewers, there is a rite of passage taking-you-down-memory lane, reliving college days and learning now what’s like to be a responsible father or mother.
It is as silly-as-you-can-get, yet entertaining and uproarious in some scenes.
Check it out!
RATING: 3 out of 5
