Lisa Kennedy(Denver Post): As viewed like tensions escalate, Teddy and Peter's partnership proves just as central and as luck may have it more vulnerable than Mac and Kelly's. Score undivided for growing up.

Annlee Ellingson(L.A. Biz): It's Byrne who's Rogen's participator in crime, and she's the intellect behind the operation … a refreshing make different of pace in a genre that usually relegates ladies to the pony role.

Robert Roten(Laramie Movie Scope): While I was disappointed this thin skin wasn't as funny considered in the state of I hoped it would be, the unforeseen depth and growth of these base characters elevates this film to a contemptuously higher level of sophistication than the same might expect.
Elias Savada(Film Threat): As a adieu-your-brain-at-home flick, Neighbors throws plenty nonsense about to cook up each adequate stew of laughs and groans inside its infantile framework…
Kam Williams(Baret News): There's little to recommend about this ugly fall into depravity.
Matt Prigge(Metro): It's one embodiment of immaturity and an exploration of it, and if it weren't considered in the state of funny or as sharp as it is, that ability have been a problem.
