This really and truly is a good, fun and entertaining movie that, if you can stand the vulgar humor, almost anyone can enjoy. Now here's why:

As told by the trailer, 'Neighbors' is about a couple on the cusp of adulthood – secure career(s), an infant, stable friends, and, to top it all off, purchase a new home. But that's where this story stops resembling any semblance of normalcy.

Almost immediately after moving in, a college fraternity purchases the residence next door and decides that it wants to achieve a place in history as hosting the most outrageous parties. At first, their “almost roommates” are okay with this. But then a line is crossed. Needless to say calamity ensues between the two groups and all hell breaks loose.

But, don't be fooled, this is not simply a reboot of 'Animal House,' lessons are learned by everyone about growing up, adulthood, and responsibility. But the drama is nicely blended with the humor and, the only reason I'm not giving it a perfect score, is because it does seem to drag in a few (very few) places. That and some of the resolutions seem a bit “convenient,” but other than only a couple incidents, this movie is consistently funny throughout. A must see for any in or recently out of college, and/or new parents.

Seth Rogen, Rose Byrn, Zac Efron and the rest of the cast all are completely spot on in their delivery of raunchy humor. This movie is extremely funny, but with very few, almost unnoticeable, chinks in its armor.

At the close, I would like to thank Epic Theaters for their providing a very amiable theater in which to view this (and other) movies and recommend that you go to one of their several local locations for your next cinematic experience.
