Byrne walks away with the film by making Kelly a well-rounded, conflicted person, rather than the film's fun cop who has to tell everyone the boring truth.

The young married couple does something cruel, and then the idiot frat guys next door respond, and back and forth it goes. I laughed, but not uproariously and not often enough.

It's Apatow without the Apatow, all ornaments and no tree.

As as tensions escalate, Teddy and Peter's partnership proves just as central and perhaps more vulnerable than Mac and Kelly's. Score one for growing up.

Rogen's always a dominating presence, but [Byrne], who showed her comic chops in Bridesmaids, comes close to stealing the movie here, in an uncorked performance full of volatile, liberating mischief.

One of the great surprises of Neighbors is both the gentle way with which it handles a nimrod party animal like Teddy and how good Efron is at playing him.

It's gross, all right, but rarely funny -- unless jokes about alcohol-laced breast milk is your thing.

I miss the days when comedy scripts were lovingly honed, with dialogue that sang not stuttered. But at least Stoller manages to avoid many of the clichs of the raunchy bromance genre.

The performances are solid. Rogen does his usual, husky-boy geek thing while Efron seems more comfortable as a dreamboat than as a doctor in last year's Parkland. It's the script that lets them down.

Fortunately, Rogen and Byrne make for an appealingly frazzled and conflicted couple.
