Reeling - Rene Rodriguez

May 11, 2014

Neighbors (R)

There’s a meaty subtext in Neighbors, a raunchy comedy about a fraternity led by Zac Efron and Dave Franco that wages war on the married couple (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) who lives next door. Look past all the penis jokes (this movie sets a record) and gross-out gags (lactating breasts in dire need of milking), and you’ll find an unexpectedly honest portrait of the moment in life — usually the early 30s — when we lose interest in the bacchanal pursuits of the young and embrace the quieter but equally rewarding pleasures of adulthood.
