The one that got me was the baby with the condom and the parents' reaction.

I didn't even notice that Dave Franco was standing behind Efron doing Meet The Parents DeNiro until the second time I watched.

so a pattern is happening in hollywood with movie titles. and its getting to stupid to ignore. so hollywood is changing smart titles to words that desribe the movie.

Townies is a cute title. Neighbors is a 100% clear word that describes the movie. its about neighbors. i understand that this is promotion and that this is about money. the story can still be good. but does hollywood think we are to stupid or are we already to stupid?

He has pretty good comedic timing. I loved the trailer.

Has a real young parents/fear boy movie feel I dig it.

As a 21 year old whose most friends are now having kids I can relate to Seth. And as a partier i can relate to effron. I'm liking this. Lets hope the jokes aren't all slapstick over the time stuff... The baby condom part...

But I'm always up for some laughs.. Did Seth & Evan write the movie ? If so I can expect a poor third act. If not, I still expect a poor third act.

I only laughed at three parts:

1) The baby and the condom scene
2) "You talking to me?"
3) "Cute baby!"

Could be really funny, or lame. Especially the latter with Rogen headlining.

Two things that bothered me in this trailer -

1. Why is Rogen so nonplussed about his baby chewing on a "balloon"? That's a major choking hazard!

2. Rogen has no shoes on in his office. What's up with that?

Ah so there was a title change. I was looking for a thread about this and I couldn't find it. This is getting great reviews especially Byrne

Here are more:

THR - http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/rev...-review-687046

Quote:
...

It's breeders against bros in Neighbors, Nicholas Stoller's tale of two young parents who buy their first home only to watch the house next door be invaded by a fraternity bent on one-upping their debauchery-pioneering forebears. Very funny at the outset and escalating steadily for most of its brisk running time, the film represents a big win for neophyte screenwriters Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O'Brien, and should return Stoller to the commercial peak of his debut Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
...

Efron is credibly hateful here, his vacant eyes radiating dumb defiance as the frat taunts and abuses the Radners. By contrast, Rogen and Byrne work each other into a frenzy, first trying to stop the pranks, then to avenge them. As the couple's plots grow increasingly aggressive, Byrne gets more freedom than she often does, stealing scenes with last-ditch deviousness.

The last time Universal screened one of their big summer comedies at South by Southwest, it turned out to be "Bridesmaids" – a movie that not only proved to be a massive financial success (and a breakthrough for its co-writer/star Kristin Wiig) but a critical one as well, even earning an Academy Award nomination for its screenplay. So a fair amount of anticipation greeted tonight's "work-in-progress" (although look, it seems totally finished) screening of the new Seth Rogen/Zac Efron comedy "Neighbors." And while "Neighbors" doesn't come close to capturing "Bridesmaids'" emotional honesty, it could have a chance of one-upping that film in the box office. Simply put, "Neighbors" is one of the funniest, most visually inventive studio comedies in recent memory.

NEIGHBORS may be Seth Rogen's funniest since KNOCKED UP. This generation finally has a fun college movie. #SXSW14

Fred Topel @FredTopel
Biggest revelation of NEIGHBORS is Rose Byrne's comedic performance. She's been funny but this is next level outrageous. #sxsw14

Anne Thompson @akstanwyck 10m
Seth Rogen is on a roll: comedy Neighbors, shown as work-progress at SXSW, will be a huge hit. Rose Byrne and Zac Ephron hold their own.

Meredith Borders @xymarla 10m
Rose Byrne is the absolute VIP of NEIGHBORS. Runner up: Zac Efron's Jesus muscle.

Erik Childress @EriktheMovieman 3m
Seth Rogen movies make me laugh. What more do you want me to say about NEIGHBORS right now? #sxsw

ErikDavis @ErikDavis 1m
NEIGHBORS is out-of-control funny. As a former frat dude AND a dad, this movie pummeled my funny bone. Rose Byrne wins MVP #sxsw

William Goss @williambgoss 1m
Neighbors: Rose Byrne for President. I don't care which country she's from. #SXSW

Adam B. Vary @adambvary 1m
Nick Stoller says Enter the Void, of all things, was the visual inspiration for party scenes in #Neighbors. Whoa. #SXSW

Bryce Seifert @bryceseifert 2m
The energy inside the Neighbors premiere was incredible. Hilarious film, too. Zac Efron can be funny.

Eric D. Snider @EricDSnider 9m
NEIGHBORS is quite funny and surprisingly - shockingly, even - tight and controlled. Like Zac Efron's abs, it has no fat on it. #sxsw

Jack Giroux @JackGi Protected Tweets 13m
Rose Byrne is wonderful in Neighbors.

Jason Bailey @jasondashbailey 1m
NEIGHBORS: Wildly unruly, frequently hilarious. Everyone's solid, but Rose Byrne may be the MVP. #SXSW

Eric Vespe ‏@EricVespe 4m
Neighbors is pretty great. You can make fun of me all you want, but Zac Efron has some great comic chops

Eric D. Snider ‏@EricDSnider 5m
You expect a Seth Rogen movie directed by the FIVE YEAR ENGAGEMENT guy to be long and sloppy, albeit funny. NEIGHBORS is just funny. #sxsw

Kenny Miles ‏@kmiles723 8m
Non-stop laughter and strong applause greeted NEIGHBORS which played well with the audience. Expect a summer comedy smash. #sxsw

Eric D. Snider ‏@EricDSnider 1m
More about NEIGHBORS: 1) Rose Byrne is a revelation. 2) It has one of the best sight gags I've ever seen. SFX involved, but still. Amazing.
