The Neighbors, movie review

This movie was so-so. It did have it’s funny moments, but it did weigh a little too heavy in the sex department for me. That kind of humor is a bit crude for me.

The traditional war between a noisy neighbor (the frat house) and the young couple with a baby, does take a few original twists and there might be a few hidden messages. The movie takes a lighthearted approach and seems like a common college-idiot-comedy at first. But at the end, one of them learns he should have spent more time studying and less partying. I liked that a moral was thrown in there.

But overall, the movie fell flat to me. The jokes and turf war going to extremes that were unbelievable and not at all plausible. I understand this is acceptable for comedies to do, in the search for a good laugh, but for me it ruined it.

If you are able to watch this for free or close to it, go ahead, it wasn’t bad. But I wouldn’t suggest seeking it out.

Welcome to my blog! I live in Florida with my husband and our Kitty, a rescued Abyssinian. I have several novels published under the name "Nina Schluntz". I’m an avid movie goer, so most of my blog posts will be a review of the most recent movie I happened to see. Sometimes I’ll mix it up and read a book too. Or… my favorite, I’ll see the movie then read the book it was based on! View all posts by mizner13
