Is there a more unlikely lead actor than Seth Rogen? Since assuming the forefront in Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up,
the burly, curly haired Canadian has shown audiences he’s someone they can not only laugh at but root for, doing so in everything from stoner comedies (Pineapple Express)
to, well, more stoner comedies (This Is the End).
Based solely on the way the film has been marketed, it would be easy to write off Neighbors
as yet another Rogen stoner-com — or worse, frat-com — yet doing so would miss the mark entirely.
