Neighbors With Many Hefty Deleted Scenes

Director Nicholas Stoller Says No to Extended Cut

For a while now, "R"-rated comedies are much more successful at the box office than family-friendly films with a "PG-13" or even "PG" classification and crack the magical $100 million border. Neighbors is the next entry in that line that will easily achieve that goal. The premise is simple but promising, the actors fit the part and the reviews are very positive.

Obviously, the crew had a lot of fun at the set and was quite euphoric while filming. A scene with Nick Offerman is described as one of the craziest scenes they have ever filmed. It apparently didn't make the final cut, though. And the same goes for a wild sex scene involving Christopher Mintz-Plasse that was seemingly removed from the theatrical version. It is unclear why that happened but maybe it was just too much for the "R" rating.

The automatically leads to the question whether there might be an Extended or Unrated Cut of the film later on home video. Producer Evan Goldberg makes clear that he's usually no fan of such releases but if a film deserved it, it would be Neighbors.

While the last productions with Goldberg's involvement (This is the End, etc.) did not get the Extended Cut treatment, earlier films with him as executive producer always got a longer version (see for example our comparisons for Pineapple Express, Superbad and Knocked Up). However, director Nicholas Stoller is definitely against an Extended Cut and that means that said scenes will most likely end up in the bonus section of the eventual Blu-ray. And since they announce that it will be "the best Blu-ray of all time", it's probably still something to look forward to.
