It's hell getting old. You're overworked, underpaid, get grey hairs, everything hurts, there's barely time for sex, you fall asleep on the couch watching 'Game of Thrones' and, unless you're George Clooney, you're just not cool anymore. You either hike up your pants and accept it, or you wage all out war. It's the latter that highlights the uproarious Seth Rogen and Zac Efron comedy 'Neighbors,' which just might be the funniest American movie since ... well, since Seth Rogen's last movie.
When I got a chance to sit down with Zac Efron, Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen on the set of their upcoming R-rated comedy, 'Neighbors,' Efron was easily the most amped to be there. Perhaps he worried that he would be stuck for much of his career playing in romantic comedies, and similar Disney-fied films (more women break out of the child star shackles than teen heartthrobs). For him it might very well change everything.
Where for Rogen and Goldberg, who recently finished ‘This Is the End’ at the time of our interview, the movie was a transition point as Rogen is now getting old enough to play a responsible adult and parent. And though he produced ‘Neighbors’ with Goldberg, he definitely maintains his hand in the process.

In a surprise to no one, director Nicholas Stoller’s new film, ‘Neighbors,’ features male nudity. The film focuses on a married couple played by Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne, whose characters are raising a child, and the frat house next door run by Zac Efron and Dave Franco. In the scenes we saw from our visit to the set, there are a number of big parties in the film, and the frat brothers behave as they will -- which means they’re going to get out of hand and is what creates the central conflict in the film.
If Zac Efron can take a shot to the jaw with dignity (too soon?), he can certainly handle anything Seth Rogen has to throw at him. The two star in the upcoming comedy 'Neighbors,' the trailer for which features the two in a heated showdown as a family man and a douchey frat guy trying to boot the other off their residential block.
