Quickly it becomes apparent that this 2014 Neighbors has no relation to the 1981 version that was, sadly, John Belushi’s final movie.
They do share the fact that neither one of them is very good.
About the film
Belushi, who died of a drug overdose in 1982, didn’t make many movies.
Two are beloved (Animal House , The Blues Brothers ), one’s a cult classic (Goin’ South [1978 with Jack Nicholson]), one’s highly underrated (1941 [1979, Steven Spielberg’s “worst” movie; it’s jampacked with madcappery – moreso than just about any movie ever made]), and one’s a better than average romantic comedy (Continental Divide [1981, “the only time Belushi got to really act”).
