‘Neighbors’ Official Red Band Trailer Released, Hijinks with Seth Rogen & Zac Efron To Be Had

As 2014 approaches, more and more trailers for the beginning of the year are dropping in hopes of engaging the audience early, and that’s the case with this surely R-rated comedy, Neighbors. Director Nicholas Stoller, whose most recent credit is the underrated The Five Year Engagement, but whom most know as the man behind Forgetting Sarah Marshall and the spin off, Get Him to the Greek, is at the helm of this Adults vs Frat Bros comedy.

The story goes as follows, a couple with a newborn baby are faced with troubles when a fraternity moves in next door. The story seems pretty simple, but it’s definitely prime for some raunchy comedy with its stellar cast.  Seth Rogen (This is the End)  and Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids) star as the older couple, while Zac Efron (High School Musical), Dave Franco (21 Jump Street), and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Superbad) play the frat boys. Check out the hilarious, albeit short, red band trailer below:

As I said above, the set up seems prime for some R-rated comedy, and while we’ve seen the whole adults trying to fit in with the younger crowd before, this seems to be more of insane hijinks between the two groups than them trying to fit in with one another. I mean that ending bit with the airbag was freaking hilarious, and the Robert De Niro costume is a funny idea too. While it’s still a ways off, I’m sure come time next year people will be talking about this comedy. In addition to the cast listed above, some notable TV comedic talents star as well; Jake Johnson (New Girl), Carla Gallo (Undeclared), and Lisa Kudrow (Friends) each have a part in this 2014 flick.

Grizzly Review: Bridesmaids

I had virtually no expectations going into seeing the movie Bridesmaids.  At best, I would spend some quality time with Kristen Wiig and her deliciously witty sense of humor.  At worst, I would see yet another SNL great succumb to an astronomical cinematic fiasco (though none can hold a candle to the mind-numbing scrapbook of atrocities Eddie Murphy has to his name). If anything, the film’s marketing had me intrigued:  “A Hangover for the girls!”  What in the world does that mean?  That it had the same plot, but the characters have different plumbing?  That it’s a raunchy comedy that appealed more to women?  That The Hangover didn’t appeal to women?  That I was abnormal to be a woman who enjoyed The Hangover?  While I still don’t get the foundation of this particular marketing ploy (other than its ability to attract fans of the Hangover), I will say that I thoroughly enjoyed the film.

InSHITious: A Tale of Disappointment

**WARNING: This article contains spoilers**

On April 1, 2011, the horror flick Insidious was released into theaters everywhere. With the same creators as the famous Saw horror movie series, and the producers of the very scary Paranormal Activity, Insidious was sure to be an amazing movie…or so I thought.
