Bad Neighbours (2014) movie review

Who Do You Loathe?


When a fraternity moves next door to a suburban couple with a young baby it begs the questions -- who is the worse neighbour?

Beer, booze, juvenile antics and noise? or a screaming baby and the parents who want the world to revolve around their need to keep the noise down.

It rapidly becomes clear that this movie is aimed solidly at the youth market. As the two houses feud the foolishness escalates. This is not a film whose humour is bright wit and clever insights, rather it's a emotionally stunted and really, if one wouldn't like to live next to either of these two households, why spend as much as two hours with them?
