Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne are back battling college students in the sequel to the surprise hit Bad Neighbours. After successfully banishing the fraternity from their little suburb, new parents Mac (Rogen) and Kelly (Byrne) are enjoying the serenity of the peace and quiet. That is until a sorority moves in and cause more trouble for the couple than the previous inhabitants.
After their own attempts to shut the sorority down, Mac and Kelly enlist the help of former foe Teddy (Zac Efron) to fight fire with fire. While the plot is basically a copy paste of the original, the first movie was an unexpected hit and managed a few moments of comedy gold. I remain in doubt if the sequel will recapture the box office success of the original. Once again directed by Nicholas Stoller, Bad Neighbours 2 is released in the UK in May.
Now that Mac (Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Byrne) have a second baby on the way, they are ready to make the final move into adulthood: the suburbs. But just as they thought they’d reclaimed the neighborhood and were safe to sell, they learn that the new occupants next door are a sorority even more out of control than Teddy (Efron) and his brothers ever dreamed of being.
Tired of their school’s sexist, restrictive system, the unorthodox ladies of Kappa Nu have decided to start a house where they can do whatever the hell they want. When Shelby (Moretz) and her sisters, Beth (Kiersey Clemons) and Nora (Beanie Feldstein), find the perfect place just off campus, they won’t let the fact that it’s located on a quiet street stand in their way of parties as epic as the guys throw.
Forced to turn to the one ex-neighbor with the skills to bring down the new Greeks next door, the Radners — alongside best friends Jimmy (Ike Barinholtz) and Paula (Carla Gallo) — bring in charismatic Teddy as their secret weapon. If he can infiltrate the sorority and charm his way through it, the thirtysomethings will shutter the Kappas’ home. But if they think that their neighbors are going down without a fight, they have severely underestimated the power of youthful ingenuity and straight-up crazy.
