Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising Review
Seth Rogen and Zac Efron are back and funnier than ever with the sequel to their hit comedy “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising” in theaters now.
Two years after feuding with a rowdy frat that moved next door to them, young parents Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) are about to have their second child and move to a new house. Unfortunately, their attempts to sell their current home hit a snag when a sorority led by a rebellious college student (Chloë Grace Moretz) become their new neighbors. Desperate to get rid of the hard-partying gals, the couple forge an alliance with Teddy (Zac Efron), the former frat boy who tormented them the last time around. Directed by Nicholas Stoller.
Seth Rogen returns as Mac, playing him with the same and entertaining hilarity as the first film, just not as high on drugs as the last film. Zac Efron reprises his role as Teddy, former frat boy neighbor, playing him with such likeability and his comedic timing is just perfect. Efron sure has come a long way since his High School Musical days. The chemistry between Rogen and Efron is pure comedic magic and the way they play off of each other is hysterical.
Also returning is Rose Byrne, reprising her role as Kelly, and she is just as hilarious as ever. Byrne’s comedic performance is right on point and her occasional rants on hysterical. Her chemistry with Rogen and Efron is just perfect which makes this film even better. New to the franchise is Chloe Grace Moretz, playing the role as rebellious college student Shelby and she is just perfect. She is both likeable and hilarious and is a great addition to the film. The rest of the cast was excellent as well.
I would like to give a shout to Selena Gomez, who appeared in the film with a minor cameo role and was just perfect and hilarious. This film is even more enjoyable to watch as the first film and you will not stop laughing at all the hilarious and ridiculous things that happen throughout the film. Here’s hoping for a third and hilarious installment.
