2014’s R-rated Neighbors was all about a battle between a couple and the fraternity next door. As such, much of the comedy was of the “frat-bro” variety. This may make it slightly surprising that in Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising one character will turn out to be gay.

Neighbors' Clever Comedian Cameos: Did You Catch Them All? Neighbors' Clever Comedian Cameos: Did You Catch Them All?
Well, the totals are in and the Seth Rogen comedy Neighbors is a big fat hit. Not only did it win rave reviews from critics--with our own Sean O'Connell calling it "fresh, relatable" and "hysterical"--but it also won at the box office, beating out The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with a healthy $51 million. That's especially impressive when you consider Neighbors R-rating means it was playing to a narrower audience than the well-established, franchised, PG-13-rated tent pole.

Weekend Box Office: Neighbors Takes Number One Over Sinking Spider-Man Weekend Box Office: Neighbors Takes Number One Over Sinking Spider-Man
Neighbors debuted at a solid number one with $51 million, making it the third largest ever opening for a rated-R comedy (Sex and the City is the highest, opening with $57 million in 2008, and Ted which opened at $54 million in 2012). That's the highest ever live-action opening for Rogen (his previous best was Green Hornet, $33 million in 2011). The same goes for Efron who has struggled to find the box office limelight post High School Musical 3.

Universal has projected just about half that for the Nick Stoller comedy, which reportedly only cost $18 million. But most industry analysts forecast somewhere in the (pun alert) neighborhood of $35-$40 million. A tidy sum, and with two weeks before A Million Ways To Die In The West is unleashed, a solid springboard to $100 million domestic.

This early clip features Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) introducing themselves to Delta Psi brothers Teddy (Zac Efron) and Pete (Dave Franco), and you can see Christopher Mintz-Plasse’s Scoonie in there as well. It seems to be a successful meet, with only the slightest bit of condescending smarm oozing off of the frat brothers - though the bit where he implied that Kelly is a flirt made my stomach twinge.

Stoller could trim the run time of Neighbors, as the back-and-forth between the warring parties goes from inspired to childish and more than a bit exhausting. But the film has multiple, huge laughs. It plays extremely well with a crowd who is plugged in to the anarchistic rivalry.
