Zac Efron, Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne star in Neighbors, a new comedy about a young family dealing with the ridiculous frat house next door. We have an exclusive clip that’s the perfect amount of wrong.
Kelly and Mac Radner (Rose Byrne and Seth Rogen) are hoping to settle down in a quiet suburb with their infant daughter to enjoy a life of domestic bliss. But their dream is quickly shattered when a frat house moves into the home next door. It’s no surprise that babies and beer bongs don’t mix, but it is funny.
Teddy (Zac Efron) is the fraternity’s president and relies heavily on Pete (Dave Franco) to keep the party atmosphere alive. When Kelly and Mac introduce themselves to the frat brothers, it seems as if the two houses will be able to co-exist.
Things change for the worse, however, when the partying at the frat house rages out of control, and Kelly and Mac are at their wits’ end.
In this exclusive featurette that takes us behind the scenes, we see the baby find a very inappropriate chew toy — a condom, presumably used. Gross! But that’s why it’s hilarious. Rogen explains, “When we filmed the baby putting the condom in her mouth, I actually started crying, I was laughing so hard.” Excuse me, but isn’t a condom a choking hazard?
Baby Stella has the cutest round face and intoxicating smile. She is played by twins Elise and Zoey Vargas. We wonder what the girls will think about chewing on condoms for the big screen when they go off to college 18 years from now. Let’s just hope they stay away from frat houses like this one.
This comedy borders on raunchy but appears to bring big laughs with a current score of 100 percent fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. The film also stars Lisa Kudrow (Friends), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Superbad) and Jake Johnson (New Girl).
Neighbors opens in theaters on May 9.
