Los Angeles - Raunchy adult comedy Neighbors, starring Seth Rogen as a family man who lives next to a frat house, kicked superhero sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 from the top of US and Canadian box office charts over the weekend.

Neighbors earned $51.1m in ticket sales from Friday through Sunday, according to estimates from tracking firm Rentrak. Spider-Man 2, last weekend's box office leader, took in $37.2m to finish second, far ahead of comedy The Other Woman in third place with $9.3m.

Rogen stars in Neighbors as a married former party guy transitioning into suburban parenthood. His character wages war with the frat house next door and its president, played by former High School Musical star Zac Efron.

Spider-Man 2 features Andrew Garfield as the web-slinging superhero in a follow-up to a 2012 blockbuster. Emma Stone plays Gwen Stacy, the girlfriend of Spider-Man alter-ego Peter Parker.

In The Other Woman, Cameron Diaz, Kate Upton and Leslie Mann team up to seek revenge on a cheating husband.
