Neighbors Directed by Nicholas Stoller
The packed audience I saw it with roared at every intimation of ooey-gooey homoeroticism, one of which seemed to fly at us about every thirty seconds. Disguised as a takedown of bros-before-hos frat life, Neighbors is just another reaffirmation of that mentality’s depressing centrality in our culture.

Whenever Mac and Kelly join the frat brothers in their wild bacchanals, Stoller goes to town stylistically, letting these scenes play out with fever-dream abandon. You sense the young couple’s regret that these days are behind them; every party feels like the Final Party. The energy drops, though, whenever Neighbors resorts to typical patched-together improv scenes, cutting back and forth between two actors riffing on each other.
