By all appearances, new parents Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Rose Byrne) are living the American Dream –complete with an adorable baby girl and a beautiful new starter home in the suburbs. Still, the early-thirtysomethings want to believe that they have a modicum of coolness left within them. So when they discover that their new next-door neighbors are none other than dozens of Delta Psi Beta fraternity brothers led by charismatic president Teddy Sanders (Zac Efron), they try to play along and make the best of an awkward situation. But when the frat’s parties grow increasingly more epic, both sides of the property line begin to fend for their turf. The neighbors’ relentless sabotage escalates into outrageous one-upmanship, beginning an epic Greek war for the ages. Also stars Dave Franco and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Neighbors is a raunchy, hard-R comedy about a hard-partying college fraternity that moves in next door to a married couple with a baby. Starring Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, and Dave Franco, the comedy is overwhelmingly about sex, drugs, and pranks that aren't appropriate for most teens. The strong language ("f--k," "s--t," and much, much more) is nonstop; the gross-out humor includes lactating breast jokes and full-frontal shots of a prosthetic penis; and the sex features everything from semi-nude marital lovemaking to casual frat party hook-ups. That said, if you can see beyond the crude laughs, there are messages about what it means to become an adult and transition from all-night ragers to brunch and diapers.
