2014 (Nicholas Stoller) 18A, 96 minutes - English

Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, Zac Efron, Dave Franco

Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose) are a young married couple who are adjusting to parenthood, having just moved into their first house. They're at that moment where they still have fresh memories of their party days, but they're settling into a life of responsibility and chafing a bit at the sensation. When the Delta Psy Kappa fraternity buys the house next door to them, Mac and Kelly are determined to try to be the cool neighbors. They go over to introduce themselves to Teddy (Zac Efron) and Pete (Dave Franco), the president and vice-president of the frat, and they try to reach out so that there won't be any problems in the future.

That lasts for about a day, of course. The Deltas, and Teddy in particular, are obsessed with partying, complete with a shrine to various party landmarks from the frat's history stretching all the way back to the '30s. Teddy is determined to get his own picture up on the wall before he graduates, which is problematic for Mac and Kelly and their infant daughter Stella. What begins as a slightly strained back and forth escalates into a full-blown war of the wills as Mac and Stella work to figure out a way to drive the frat out of the house even as the Deltas work to figure out a way to reach party god immortality.
