    I heard neighbors was so funny, great reviews … I can’t wait. I’m jealous of all the people in Austin now.

    Sue Says:

    @June: It’s because it’s a Seth Rogen film. JJ is right it’s just another sex symbol role for Efron. He will be more famous for taking off his clothes than acting.

    Love dave franco , he is so cute and the one to watch.

    Who will he be this time. Says:

    More promos were Efron takes on the personality of his character. So this time we will see play being a Frat boy in all his interviews. Can’t wait for that , NOT.

    RT Says:

    @sarah TAM flopped grossing nearly 40m worldwide already against a budget of 8m. This will gross a loooot more. Yup this will flop bigger than TAM. lol

    Efron is credibly hateful here, his vacant eyes radiating dumb defiance as the frat taunts and abuses the Radners

    ”Simply put, “Neighbors” is one of the funniest, most visually inventive studio comedies in recent memory.” wow

    emily Says:

    ”Rogen and Byrne also attend one of their out-of-control parties, which is the opening salvo in what turns out to be some of the most elaborately choreographed and beautifully photographed party sequences we’ve ever seen in a comedy”

    RT Says:

    @emily: ”This movie is full of jokes (they seem to ricochet off of each other in all sorts of spectacular ways), and not just jokes but jokes that connect, consistently, more than not. It’s all sorts of surprising”

    A runner up for star of the movie is Stoller’s direction and Brandon Trost’s cinematography. Most studio comedies look flat and over-lit, but “Neighbors” is bathed in deep shadows, with the party sequences electrifying the movie in dazzling ways. Stoller seems patently unafraid of trying new things—and really weird stuff at that—while Trost, a former confederate of Rob Zombie, pushes the visuals brilliantly. The black light party looks like something out of “Spring Breakers” (and, during the Q&A, Stoller said he took inspiration from “Enter the Void”), while other party sequences take on their own cadences. The movie as a whole has a wonderfully playful rhythm, with the jokes rising and falling like crests of a giant ocean wave. But the party sequences really allow the filmmakers to break that rhythm and really stretch themselves creatively. Away from the slightly pat comedies that he has made in the past, Stoller shines. Like Rogen, he seems to have found freedom in maturity and the sublime in silliness. Or is it the other way around? With “Neighbors,” we laughed until we ached. Then we laughed some more. [A-]”

    They look so good!
    And I don’t think TAM flopped, it didn’t do well but I don’t think it is a flop. 40M worldwide isn’t that bad as people are making it out to be.

    Back to Neighbors! Wow, they said that they audience at the screening loved it! Read the indiewire and Hollywood Reporter reviews.

    And this one:

    Do you know who is REALLY funny in Nicholas Stoller’s Neighbors? Like, “steal the show” funny?

    Zac Efron.

    I can hear you bitching and moaning already. Save it. Efron uses every tool in his box to keep up with (and often ahead of) a fast-and-filthy talking Seth Rogen as Neighbors works up a disgustingly funny lather. The raunchy rival comedy held a work-in-progress screening at the Paramount Theater during South By Southwest, and while the MPAA might ask for a few cuts (there are a LOT of **** jokes), the version we saw will light theaters on fire when Neighbors opens this summer.
