Movie-A-Day #142: Neighbors (1981).

May 22, 2011

Today is Neighbor Day. So after you go out there to try to meet the folks living next door who you hardly know, take the time to revisit “Neighbors.” The all-but-forgotten entry in the Dan Aykroyd/John Belushi canon, this one has the guys playing against type – Belushi as the staid, conservative one and Aykroyd as the out of control ball of energy. It would have been a much better movie if their roles were reversed (as they had originally been cast), but it’s an interesting failure nonetheless. It was also Belushi’s last film.
