Review: Bad Neighbours 2

What makes this film still a hit is the cast...

Following on from the 2014 smash hit, Bad Neighbours, Seth Rogen, Rose Bryne and Zac Efron are back starring in the sequel Bad Neighbours 2: Sorority Rising.

In Bad Neighbours 2: Sorority Rising, couple Mac (Rogen) and Kelly (Byrne) are trying to sell their current home. As they are currently in escrow, it means that the buyers have 30 days to decide if they really want to buy and commit to the house, meaning they can pull out of the deal in this 30-day time frame. Seems simple, right? That is until a new sorority move in next door and declares war on Mac and Kelly.

The new sorority, Kappa Nu is lead by Shelby (Chloë Grace Moretz) who is determined to throw parties in order to promote feminism and gender equality. As Mac and Kelly try to shut down her parties, in order to keep the sale on their house, Shelby enlists the help of Teddy (Zac Efron), who is Mac and Kelly’s nemesis from the first film. 

The film is very similar to the first as it practically follows the exact same plot as the original film. It is once again Mac and Kelly’s attempt to shut down the group of teenagers next door. The jokes are funny, and the pranks from both sides will still manage to make you laugh, however it is a little less funny the second time round.

What makes this film still a hit is the cast. It feels that the chemistry between all of them is effortless. For fans of Zac Efron, he is shirtless in many of the scenes, (he even treats you to a little dance!), so you won’t be disappointed if you are a fan. Rogen and Byrne work as a great duo, they work well with each other and really bounce of one another. They’re both fantastic actors with comedy talent. There is also a brief cameo from Selena Gomez.

Bad Neighbours 2 does touch on important issues, such as sexism towards women and tries to challenge the patriarchy nature within parties and colleges, as well as sweet messages about sisterhood and parenthood.

All in all, Bad Neighbours 2 is a film worth watching if you are up for a laugh on an afternoon. It is not a complete flop, but like with all sequels, it is not as good as the original. But with a great cast who are hilarious throughout, you will still enjoy this film.

Bad Neighbours 2: Sorority Rising is in cinemas across the UK now.
