Outrageous mindless entertainment!

Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Rose Byrne) are a young couple with a newborn daughter. The restrictions of parenthood make it difficult for them to maintain their old lifestyle, which alienates them from their friends Jimmy Faldt (Ike Barinholtz) and his ex-wife, Paula (Carla Gallo). Things get even worse when the couple finds out that a fraternity known for their outrageous parties, Delta Psi Beta, has moved into an adjacent house. The fraternity's leaders, Teddy Sanders (Zac Efron) and Pete Regazolli (Dave Franco) are planning a lot of parties but Mac and Kelly won't go down easy. So the war begins.

Ok. This is the type of comedy not everybody will enjoy. It's vulgar, outrageous, sick and disgusting with toilet humor and there is not much new to enjoy. Most scenes are not funny, you're more grossed out than anything else. On the other hand it's also positively dumb movie, the cast did a good job and some issues are relevant. How to balance activities you loved before as a couple and now you have a baby, new responsibilities, but you don't want to missed old things and be treated like an old person. It's just exaggerated raunchy outrageous adult flick. 3/5
