Bad Neighbours 2

Bad Neighbours 2 (2016)

Steph author picIt’s been a while since I’ve gone to a cinema and done nothing but laugh for 90 minutes. Was this because laughter surround me from beginning to end? Or was it that Bad Neighbours 2 was simply a well-written comedy? You can judge for yourself but in my opinion the sequel surpassed the original in many ways. Not only was the comedy more sophisticated but the overall storytelling had greater depth, making the film more well-rounded. It even had the essence of a political satire by addressing hot topic issues such as gender equality and police brutality; heavy subjects highlighted with witty comedy.

The sequel to Bad Neighbours sees Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) trying to sell their house amidst reliving the war of old vs. young when a new sorority moves in next door, formerly inhabited by a fraternity led by the ever charming, Teddy (Zac Efron). The new war sees Mac and Kelly team up with Teddy to dissolve the sorority and reclaim their house.

A star-studded, funny cast, some old school pop culture references and many laugh out loud moments; Bad Neighbours 2 is exactly what it sets out to be – a fun time.

  1. Wow. Incredibly high score for something that looks utterly desperate (to me). Nothing looks original, inspired or even remotely funny. Hmmm. I might have to maybe check this out at the very least a rental. Inspiring piece Steph!
