NEIGHBORSOn September 23, Universal Studios Home Entertainment will release NEIGHBORS on Blu-ray and DVD. The comedy about a pair of new parents clashing with a local fraternity scored big with audiences, and while SETH ROGEN and ZAC EFRON may have scored top billing on the box, audiences love ROSE BYRNE. That said, Universal and THE ROCK FATHER have teamed-up for a NEIGHBORS Giveaway in which one (1) lucky reader will take home the Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD Combo Pack. Enter to win, and check out a special feature on why Rose Byrne is a nearly universal "girl crush" below.

NEIGHBORSNEIGHBORS:

By all appearances, new parents Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Rose Byrne) are living the American Dream - complete with an adorable baby girl and a beautiful new starter home in the suburbs. Still, the early-thirtysomethings want to believe they have a modicum of coolness left within them. So when they discover that their new next-door neighbors are none other than dozens of Delta Psi Beta fraternity brothers led by charismatic president Teddy Sanders (Zac Efron), they try to make the best of an awkward situation. But when the frat’s parties grow increasingly more epic, both sides of the property line begin to fend for their turf. The neighbors’ relentless sabotage escalates into outrageous one-upmanship, beginning a Greek war for the ages. Also stars Dave Franco and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. 

SPECIAL FEATURE: ROSE BYRNE - OUR GIRL CRUSH

Rose Byrne has developed into one of Hollywood’s most versatile actresses. The Australian beauty has played numerous roles, from her goody-too shoes portrayal of Helen in Bridesmaids, to her roles in horror films like 28 Weeks Later and Insidious, she has shown the ability to effortlessly transition from one character to the next.

In Neighbors, Rose Byrne plays Kelly, the loving wife to Mac (Seth Rogen) and mother to their adorable baby Stella (Elise & Zoey Vargas). While it’s Rogen that’s typically knownfor his comedic chops, Rose more than holds her own in the film, often stealing scenes from the rest of the hilariously funny cast. The great thing about Rose playing Kelly, is that she gets to break the typical Mom and wife mold seen in most raunchy comedies. Instead of being the responsible adult who always looks to straighten out her kids and goofball husband, she’s often taking part and even playing a leading role in the debauchery that takes place in the film.

What moments have made Rose Byrne our girl crush? Let's take a look...

Rose Byrne in BRIDESMAIDSBRIDESMAIDS

One of the most memorable scenes from 2011 comedy hit Bridesmaids is the scene in which Annie and Helen are giving toast speeches at Lillian’s cocktail reception to celebrate her upcoming wedding. Annie & Helen trade off giving increasingly ridiculous toasts to the bride, in an effort to out-do one another. The fact that Byrne is able to hold her one, and even one-up the ever-funny Kristen Wig served as a testament to just how funny she could be.

Rose Byrne in X-MEN: FIRST CLASSX-MEN FIRST CLASS

2011’s X-Men: First Class served as a rejuvenating entry for the X-Men film franchise. The introduction of new characters, along with a new era and setting helped to reinvigorate the franchise. Much of the success if then film can be attributed to the stellar cast that assembled to bring the iconic comicbook characters to life. Rose Byrne plays the role of Dr. Moira MacTaggart, a genetics doctor who is willing to do whatever it takes to get answers. In what is one of the risqué scenes of her career, she smoothly and seductively works a room of politicians in nothing but lingerie. Her persistence pays off, as she is able to sneak away from the party and get the answers she needs.

Rose Byrne in 28 WEEKS LATER28 WEEKS LATER

Rose Byrne plays Scarlet, an Army doctor helping to rebuild Europe after the outbreak of the Rage Virus in 2007’s zombie film, 28 Weeks Later. The follow up film to Danny Boyle’s classic 28 Days Later is viewed as one of the better horror sequels of all time. A large reason the film being so widely loved is the on-screen charisma of Rose, as well as the break out performance of Jeremy Renner as Sergeant Doyle. Amidst the chaos of the zombie outbreak in the film, Scarlet shows she’s a tough cookie as she disposes of an infected soldier with a well timed headshot. This is hardly the first time Rose has handled a gun, as you will see in the next entry.

Rose Byrne in DAMAGESDAMAGES

Rose Byrne became a household name with her portrayal of Ellen Parsons in FX’s hit series, Damages. Despite acting alongside one of Hollywood’s most iconic actresses in Glenn Close, Rose had a number of outstanding scenes that proved to audiences that she had one of a kind talent. While her character at times was that of a victim in the show, there wasn’t a more powerful scene than when she took a stand against domestic violence and protected her mother from her father, offering to shoot him in any limb he preferred. Her pointing a gun at him and emphatically telling him to “get the f*ck out” was one of the most talked about scenes from the show.
