Storyline

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.

Trivia

The baby turning around to look at Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) having sex in the first scene of the film was accidental. The scene was originally supposed to end after Seth Rogen turned her around. However, director Nicholas Stoller noticed that the baby kept looking around to watch Rogen and Rose Byrne, so he instructed one of the camera men to film the baby. According to Stoller, if you listen closely, you can hear Rogen and Byrne laugh after the baby turns around to watch them. See more »

Goofs

After Mac and Kelly finish talking to Teddy about keeping the noise down for the first time, they start walking away from the porch. The next shot shows Teddy talking to Pete for around a minute. Teddy then opens the door to see if they want to join their party, but they have only traveled about halfway down the path that leads to the porch. Mac and Kelly should have traveled farther away from the time it took Teddy to talk to Pete. See more »

Ever been to one of those parties where everyone is having a great time, but you can't wait for it be over?

That's this movie.

I don't want to completely hate on this movie, but essentially what this entire movie is, is a bunch of actors getting together and having a fun time while accidentally making a movie in tandem.

There are some big, big laughs here (most of them from Zac Efron surprisingly) even if the trailer spoiled the best ones, but I just don't find Seth Rogens "he's a big fat guy who loves weed" Shtick funny anymore, he's been doing it for doing for too long.

Plus most of the jokes are obviously improvised, like they just walked onto set that day with a rough idea of how the scene should play out and just decided to wing it, and for about every 1 joke that hits, there's about 5 that don't.

I also hated the huge lapses in logic, what about the other neighbours? wont the noise coming from the fraternity irritate them as well? and why do these parents think that a discarded condom would immediately give their baby HIV? and I don't think the Dean of the university would have been so blasé about a complaint from the public.

What difference did it even make to have them be a fraternity anyway?, The story would have worked just fine if it had been a group of loud, obnoxious young people. The only reason it was a fraternity was to attract college audiences.
