It’s a little surprising that, with a huge summer-movie-season-comedy like ‘Neighbors’ opening in theaters this weekend, there hasn’t been more talk about the other movie titled ‘Neighbors,’ even in passing. Well, that’s not entirely true, because I’ve mentioned it a couple of times in conversation and the response has been usually some sort of version of a blank stare.
Maybe the people who are old enough to remember 1981’s 'Neighbors' don’t want to remember 'Neighbors,' for a plethora of reasons. The most obvious: It was John Belushi’s last film before dying of a speedball overdose.
'Neighbors' is a hilarious movie. Let's start there. It's the day after the film's raucous premiere at SXSW and it's clear that the Seth Rogen/Zac Efron comedy has the potential to become the sleeper hit of the summer. Given the film's college theme, we caught up with stars Seth Rogen and Dave Franco to talk about the film over what some might consider the greatest college drinking game of all-time, beer pong. It's Team ScreenCrush vs. Team 'Neighbors' in an epic, beer-soaked (literally) battle!
Here's something you've probably never considered: what would it be like if 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon and 'Neighbors' co-stars Seth Rogen and Zac Efron were actually all teenage girls who had their very own Teen Nick show called 'Ew!' which was all about them screaming "Ew!" at various things and people? It's a little weird, right?
This week, a new very serious drama about Seth Rogen (‘You, Me and Dupree’) living next to a fraternity house opens in theaters across the United States. The title of this movie is ‘Neighbors.’ Is this very serious drama about Seth Rogen living next to a fraternity so far the funniest movie of 2014? As a service for some people who read the Internet, we answer every question that you could possibly have about ‘Neighbors.’
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.
Whenever a big movie comes out, the stars make the press rounds, appear on talk shows and generally do everything in their power make sure you know the name of their film and the day it is hitting theaters. Although this often involves hearing the same canned answers time and time again, it sometimes means you get to see some of your favorite actors pop up in unexpected places. In this case, 'Neighbors' stars Seth Rogen and Zac Efron teamed up with the cast of 'Workaholics,' delivering more of the hit Comedy Central show and giving them a chance to plug their upcoming movie.
Except for a couple of notable exceptions, everyone seemed to be going through the motions last night. Look, this happens. Especially at the end of a three-show run -- near the end of a long season –- looking ahead to the final stretch of shows of this season, which begin on May 3. The end is in sight! But, boy, there were some dull moments during Seth Rogen’s hosted effort that played out, at times, in front of an almost-silent studio audience. (Shhh! Don’t wake them!) Here’s this week’s pretty mellow Scorecard…
What begins as a fairly typical 'SNL' sketch soon transforms into one of darker sketches the show has put on in recent memory, exploring the dissolution of a marriage thanks to dog food choices. Guest host Seth Rogen and regular cast member Cecily Strong bring their finest comedic chops to the scene, wringing every possible ounce of discomfort out of every moment.
Last night's 'SNL' had a digital short that had it all. Two characters speaking in a fictional language while wearing Halloween masks. Guest host Seth Rogen being racist against monsters. A surprise celebrity cameo. Children being scared. A minor rant about the inaccuracies of 'Monsters, Inc.' We're not sure what everyone was eating before they wrote this Monster Pals sketch, but they should order from there more often.
Last week's 'SNL' installment significantly raised the bar for the 2014 season with the hosting debut of 'Pitch Perfect' player Anna Kendrick, but can 'Neighbors' star Seth Rogen keep the same standard of quality with his third hosting turn, alongside musical guest Ed Sheeran? Find out in the first 'SNL' promos for this Saturday's latest, alongside first-time promo maker Aidy Bryant!
