Neighbors is a completely and utterly(1) hilarious "Parents v. Frat house next door" movie. In its review, the NY Times referenced what the French call le nouvel âge d’or de la comédie américaine.(2) And biensur! c'est vrai! The Times is right! Zac Efron and Seth Rogen are very good, but the revelation is Rose Byrne as Rogen's wife and mother of their baby.
I previously knew her only as the long-suffering participant in a weird relationship with Glenn Close as her associate, adversary and victim on Damages. Her character mostly moped around while Close's power-mad lawyer killed her boyfriend, sent her on dangerous missions and generally messed with her head.
But Byrne in Neighbors is simply brilliant, keeping pace with Rogen's broad humor with wit and subtlety (not easy in a movie heavily strewn with dick jokes and dialogue about "bros" and "hos"). She's beautiful, funny and intelligent, yet an indispensable part of all of the drugs, drinking, screwing, carousing and mayhem all around her.
See it unless you're very sensitive to "bro" humor about various male and female body parts.
(1) One of a series of puns in a wild scene about. . . well, you figure it out.
(2) The new golden age of American comedy.
