When Zac Efron and Seth Rogan go to war in a film...

CAN'T say I would be complaining too much if Zac Efron was my neighbour - just saying.

But then again, there comes a point when partying EVERY night can get a bit much (yes, in my age of maturity I have come to know this new revelation).

It's also the case for new parents Mac and Kelly Radner (Seth Rogan and Rose Byrne), who are faced with having a fraternity move in next door to them in their quiet and perfect little neighbourhood.

Headed by fraternity president Teddy Sanders (Zac Efron) and vice president Pete (Dave Franco), the college boys meet their new neighbours with much love and peace.

"If there's ever a problem, just ask for me," Teddy says politely. "Don't call the cops whatever you do."

Simple as the request may have been, Mac and Kelly's blood boils over as the frat parties become constant, and Teddy is unavailable.

Voiding the verbal contract, the couple decide to call the cops for some peace and quiet for themselves and their newborn.

But according to Teddy, the violation means neighbourhood wars.

From here on in the humour escalates quickly, as the plans to sabotage each other's lives become creative and very chaotic.

Kelly and Mac need to outsmart their new neighbours if they are ever going to have peace in their hood again.

Bad Neighbours embellishes what many residents could only fantasise about - we've all had a bad neighbour or two.

A comically talented cast carries this storyline along beautifully and includes names like Andy Samberg, Adam DeVine, Blake Anderson and Anders Holm as cameos.
