QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: A married couple with a newborn must contend with a college fraternity moving in next door.
PLOT:
Mac (SETH ROGEN) and Kelly Radner (ROSE BYRNE) are new parents who miss their former hard-partying ways that are now an afterthought due to the presence of their baby girl, Stella. But at least they're not like their friends, Jimmy (IKE BARINHOLTZ) -- who works with Mac -- and Paula (CARLA GALLO) whose marriage is over. While their party days might be done, they live in a good neighborhood and are looking forward to meeting whoever might move in next door. To their shock, that turns out to be the Delta Si fraternity from the nearby college. Wanting to keep things under control, but also desirous of returning, if briefly, to their former lifestyle, they spend an evening partying with frat president Teddy Sanders (ZAC EFRON), his right-hand man Pete (DAVE FRANCO), and other frat members including Scoonie (CHRISTOPHER MINTZ-PLASSE) and Garfield (JERROD CARMICHAEL) among others. That ends with Teddy making Mac promise to call him first before calling the police should things ever get too loud or out of hand. But when that happens and they get no response from those next door, Mac and Kelly do indeed call the police, an act that raises the ire of Teddy who's determined to create a legendary frat party that will rival that of his predecessors.

It's not long before Teddy and his friends start pulling pranks and more on the couple. Getting no help from Dean Carol Gladstone (LISA KUDROW), Mac and Kelly decide to take matters into their own hands, a decision that only escalates the tension between the neighbors.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Teens might want to, especially if they're into raucous comedies and/or are fans of anyone in the cast.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For pervasive language, strong crude and sexual content, graphic nudity, and drug use throughout.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
