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

GABBAR IS BACK :

“..dumbed down to a ridiculous degree, the film - directed by hotshot Telugu director Krish - tries to be a less-pathetic version of Salman Khan's Jai Ho and might have succeeded on that count were it not for an absolutely daft script..”
by Raja Sen [Rediff]

RIDE :

“..Hunt, who also wrote and directed, didn't take her own advice. There's not a surprise in this entire movie..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

CAS & DYLAN :

“..Priestley shows a steady eye for detail in his first time as director, although he lets the film stray too much into TV territory..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

ANY DAY :

“..built on a number of ludicrous contrivances, Any Day eventually pushes its disparate pieces together into a misguided and oddly unsettling storyline..”
by Kate Erbland [The Dissolve]

HYENA :

“..there's something interesting in the way he [Gerard Johnson] deliberately denies his characters and the viewers any reprieve..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

WELCOME TO ME :

“..a dark comedy that succeeds on its own itchy terms..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD :

“..works on all levels. Foremost, it is brilliantly directed by Thomas Vinterberg..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

CLEVELAND ABDUCTION :

“..involving violence, sexual assault, torture, and, above all, captivity, abduction stories are a catch-all for the women-in-peril narrative that is the core theme of so many Lifetime movies..”
by Molly Eichel [A.V. Club]

THE WATER DIVINER :

“..the overstuffed story feels bombastic and contrived..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LITTLE BOY :

“..though occasionally sticky sweet and not always subtle, it's also a smart and very moving story..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
