Bad Neighbours 2

For the most part, the jokes in this sequel feel fresh rather than reshaped and the story is carried forward ever so slightly. But really, it is a simple premise used to launch a series of hilarious gags. A sorority, led by Shelby (Chloe Grace Moretz), moves in next door to Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) and they are even worse than the fraternity the couple dealt with last time. The group basically believes in two things – feminism and smoking weed. They want to throw their own kind of parties instead of attending fraternity events where they feel unsafe and worry about getting their drinks spiked. Unfortunately for Mac and Kelly, any rowdy college parties will prevent them from being able to sell their house and the rivalry soon turns nasty. The cast, which also includes Zac Efron and Dave Franco, continue to work well together. Regrettably, although the motivation for the college girls' actions seems to be rooted in feminism, the notion is often used as a basis for some jokes, which interferes with the positive message trying to be conveyed. Nonetheless, this is a fun sequel and you will certainly laugh out loud a lot.
