A few days after seeing the film, HelloGiggles.com -- a blog site run by Zooey Deschanel and others -- posted this article about the film, providing some background to the character I loved so much in Kelly Radner. It turns out, Seth Rogen isn't as great an actor as he seems because he actually is a brilliant husband in real life.
The Radners are a realistic yet ideal couple, Neighbors is a great movie, Seth Rogen is a great husband (and of course a fantastic actor, always one of my favorites), Lauren Miller is the kind of woman that is hopefully the norm these days (and an underrated actress apparently; I'm going to check out some of her films) and finally, conclusively, there is hope for the future.
This will be a film I'm happy to show my kids from "when I was their age", almost like a John Hughes flick for our generation. The morals and values and relating to the situation aren't quite there, but it's a comedy that makes me almost excited about our generation. Rose Byrne's delightful Kelly Radner is the kind of wife I know I aspire to be, and a beautiful mother to boot. She's an interesting, fairly decent role model, and a realistic character for people, relatable or not. And this film is hopefully the start of a new trend in comedy: real women characters.
