When their new next-door neighbors turn out to be a sorority even more debaucherous than the fraternity previously living there, Mac and Kelly team with their former enemy, Teddy, to bring the girls down.
Three buddies wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no memory of the previous night and the bachelor missing. They make their way around the city in order to find their friend before his wedding.
Dave Skylark and his producer Aaron Rapaport run the celebrity tabloid show "Skylark Tonight". When they land an interview with a surprise fan, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, they are recruited by the CIA to assassinate him.
Kelly and Mac are settling down in a quiet neighborhood with their newborn child, until the frat brothers move into the house next door. Teddy is the President, and Pete is his right hand man, and they're quick to accept friendship when Kelly and Mac introduce themselves as the neighbors. Night after night, Mac asks Teddy to lower the fraternity's noise, even accepting the invitation to the party one evening. When Teddy goes back on his word to keep the partying down, Mac calls the police to deal with the problem. The police quickly blame Mac for their presence, and the war begins. As the family feuds with the frat brothers, things get hilariously dangerous and the fraternity ends up on thin ice with their college. After receiving their final warning and being placed on probation, Mac and Kelly pull a prank so ingenious that Teddy and Pete are forced to respond.

This movie indirectly caused a very public spat between Seth Rogen and the Washington Post's film critic Anne Hornaday. After an angry, unpopular and misogynistic British college student in California murdered several people, Hornaday seized on the news that he'd watched this and many other Rogen films and speculated that Rogen was responsible for his actions because they didn't reflect the reality of social loneliness for someone who was awkward and not conventionally good-looking. Rogen angrily responded that Hornaday was saying he caused a tragedy by "getting girls in movies", and Judd Apatow publicly called Hornaday's theories "idiotic" and said she was trying to assign blame to a larger cause than the situation warranted.

In the fight scene between Teddy and Mac, Teddy's hair is perfect when he removes his skullcap and starts dancing around with his fists. But after one groin kick his hair is mussed and he's sweaty as if it's his thirtieth take. See more »
Delivers rare and few laughs while the rest is a disappointment 4.5/10
I was really looking forward to this comedy after the great surprise of this is the end plus to me Seth Rosen usually does no wrong in comedies. However Seth Rogen didn't write this like he did this is the end meaning same actor but different written humor.
If you are a fan of Seth Rogens films like knocked up, Superbad, this is the end, etc. then don't expect Much this time. This is because it isn't written by him which means different brand of humor, I know I've stated that twice but that is because it is probably the main factor of why I didn't enjoy this film that much.
Another big thing I didn't like was how a lot of the jokes weren't well executed, a lot of the hilarious jokes from the trailer I expected would be expanded in the film to a bigger joke, but the jokes in the movie were not any different then when they were in the trailer (not all of them but a lot of them). A couple of parts gave me a decent laugh but unfortunately those were rare and didn't make up for it.
The only group I would think would enjoy this are the likes of immature teens. I'm sure this film might interest some people to where they enjoy it but this one didn't deliver like it should of. Overall skip it and you wouldn't miss much if anything but watch it if you want and then give your own opinion on this website.
