The comedy is rated as R21due to Sexual Content, Nudity & Drug Use in the movie.
There is an overdose of the "F" vulgarities, throughout the film, almost every few sentences, you get to hear the word, "fxxk!" or "fxxking!".  So this movie may not be suitable for those who swear by modesty.  However, if you take it with an open mind, that the "f" vulgarities is just a common expression of frustration used in the western countries, that it is more of an "exclamation" and pure swearing, or venting of frustration, you will be able to enjoy the movie more. 

There is a couple of nude and bed scenes, but not the erotic types. But I believe, most gals will enjoy admiring the topless Zac Efron with his six-pack body, while some of the guys will be envious with green of Zac's well-built body.

While Zac Efron is cute, the little baby girl, Stella is even cuter. All the audience just can't help being captivated by her. Baby Stella is casted by twin sisters, Elise Vargas and Zoey Vargas.

Twin sisters Elise Vargas and Zoey Vargas who casted as Baby Stella
simply grabbed the attention of all the audience.
There have been a couple of interesting gags, especially the air bag scene, but there are some gags that are somewhat gross, especially the "milking scene".

Apart from the vulgarities, the movie is actually a light hearted one, promising you endless laughter through out. Some of the scenes just seemed so ridiculous, but come to think of it, when one is desperate, they can really do everything or anything that's beyond one's imagination.

While the movie seems to be a pure comedy with loads of hilarious and bitching scenes, there is more to it in a deeper level.  It tells how parents can go all way out to provide the best for their kids, no matter how nonsensical it seems; the true brotherhood where brotherly love is above all past grievance; pointing fingers at each other does not help to salvage the situation but ended up hurting each other. It is also about partying down and bidding to youth while going through the adolescence stage.

The "Bad Neighbours" will be hitting the cinema from today 8 May 2014, do catch this entertaining comedy.

Last but not least, thanks Eng Hoe for inviting me to the private screening, I've enjoyed the movie much.
