REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

3 of 4

“..the killer party movie of the summer..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
2.5 of 4

“..Rogen and Efron make an unlikely pair, but they're so good together that they keep this slapdash comedy alive even through its lazy moments..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
3 of 4

“..Neighbors is the Animal House for an era in which food fights seem quaint..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
3 of 4

“..Neighbors is probably the best comedy of the year so far and offers what too many of its fellows fail to provide: edgy humor with a slice of intelligence and insight..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
4 of 5

“..funny, filthy and definitely not for the faint of heart..”
by David Edwards [Daily Mirror]
1 of 5

“..Efron amazingly comes off the best - the guy's got devious dumbness down pat. Byrne's up for a lark but her matchup with Rogen seems dictated by studio bigwigs without any concern for chemistry..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
“..an uproarious and hugely commercial vision of intergenerational warfare..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
2 of 4

“.."Neighbors" has some interesting ideas but throws them away in favor of a string of pasted-together jokes about sex and bodily fluids..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE INTRUDERS :

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]

FOCUS :

“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

A LA MALA :

“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]

THE HUNTING GROUND :

“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

OUT OF THE DARK :

“..a horror movie with an anti-globalist bent that's more interesting than its halfhearted scares..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

THE SALVATION :

“..delivering a highly stylized widescreen revenge picture loaded with weapons and driven entirely by "superficial action"..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

EVERLY :

“..the film isn't particularly convincing either as a rousing anthology of bloodsport set pieces or a deeply felt portrait of revenge and reunion..”
by Vadim Rizov [A.V. Club]

'71 :

“..the hard-charging debut feature from TV director Yann Demange, makes us live every vivid, violent moment with him, the threat of death lurking at every turn..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

BLUEBIRD :

“..undoubtedly a remarkable achievement, especially for a first-time filmmaker..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

THE LAZARUS EFFECT :

“..still, "The Lazarus Effect," clocking in at a brief 86 minutes, doesn't go far enough, isn't scary enough and has mad scientists who just aren't mad enough..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
