I keep trying to figure out what it is I don’t like about Seth Rogen’s movies, so I keep watching them. In “Neighbors” (2014), he’s part of a young married couple with a baby, coming to grips with the transition to responsibility/parenthood/adulthood. Meanwhile, a bacchanalian fraternity moves in next door. Hijinks ensue. There are laugh-out-loud funny moments, and I do enjoy the quick-quip dialog in Rogen’s films. But there is also way too much f-bombing, potsmoking and homophobic physical comedy. Enough with the penises. Talk about overselling a joke. Which is exactly what I don’t like about Seth Rogen’s movies.
