Watch out “Animal House”, move over “Old School” fans, the movie “Neighbors” has taken up residence as Hollywood’s newest frat-com. This film packs plenty of lewd behavior and laughs, as Seth Rogen (“Knocked Up”) and his family attempts to maintain some semblance of suburban peace and quiet. This comedy builds a strong case for audiences to look into their own Home Owners Associations and Neighborhood Watch programs. In the film, we see Rogen’s Mac Radner character team up with his wife, played perfectly by Rose Byrne (“Bridesmaids”), as they scheme ways to persuade Zac Efron to move his frat-pack to a new zip code.

Maybe it was my preconceived distaste for chic flicks. Maybe it was the fact the romance genre tends to stick to a predictable formula. Maybe as one of the only males in the audience, I felt uncomfortable. Or, maybe, “The Lucky One” really was just that bad.
Zac Efron and Taylor Schilling come together in the newly-released “The Lucky One.” The film is based on a novel written by Nicholas Sparks.
Rated: PG-13. Running time: 1 hour, 49 minutes. 1.5 stars.
