"NEIGHBORS" from Universal Pictures opens Fri., May 9, 2014.

STARRING: Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, Zac Efron, Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Lisa Kudrow and Jake Johnson.

DIRECTOR: Nicholas Stoller ("Forgetting Sarah Marshall", "Get Him to the Greek", "The Muppets")

SYNOPSIS: A young couple (Rogen, Byrne) suffering from arrested development are forced to live next to a rowdy and obnoxious frat house after the birth of their new baby.

This film is vastly different from the 1981 film of the same name. Understandable since it's 33 years later and the times are vastly different. This one is obviously crafted to appeal to the younger generation what with casting Zac Efron and not giving him shirt he can keep on. The soundtrack is nothing but cheap garbage-rap. Worst of all is that Seth Rogen, a man one finds unpleasant and distasteful, is the male lead opposite the pretty boy.

Still, this will do well this weekend since there are many many young people who find this tripe appealing. It's neither good, bad or something one will ever watch but you can, all you want and keep it to yourselves. One will be watching anything else and anticipating the release of "Godzilla" next weekend.
