What would you do if a fraternity moved next door to you? That’s the question raised by the scenario of “Neighbors,” a new comedy starring Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne as a couple dealing with Zac Efron and his party house brothers. First, it’s just a problem of noise, but soon enough a full-on war breaks out between the two residences, mostly fought with pranks.
Whether Efron’s fratboy is the worst neighbor ever portrayed in the movies is yet to be seen, but he’s definitely not the first awful neighbor we’ve encountered on the big screen. Movies like “Neighbors” and its predecessors have instilled a new kind of fear in homebuyers. But, hopefully, the following 10 examples are all extremes, and really give us more peace of mind that no real life neighbor could ever be so bad.
