When their new next-door neighbors turn out to be a sorority even more debaucherous than the fraternity previously living there, Mac and Kelly team with their former enemy, Teddy, to bring the girls down.
Two hard-partying brothers place an online ad to find the perfect dates for their sister's Hawaiian wedding. Hoping for a wild getaway, the boys instead find themselves out-hustled by an uncontrollable duo.
Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) are ready to make the final move into adulthood. But just as they thought they have reclaimed the neighborhood, they learn that their new neighbors are even more out of control than the last. To evict them, they will need help from their ex neighbor (Zac Efron).Written by
Certain scenes that were in the movie are different on blu ray. Like there's a shot where the main three girls are sitting side-by-side while Chloe smokes a joint looking wide-eyed. That shot is in the movie, but it's part of a video they upload to get members interested... so you see it from the POV of someone watching a YouTube video. The scene where the girl goes through the windshield is in there, but oddly her flying past Seth Rogen in slow motion is not. It just cuts to him hitting the brakes and her flying past the car on to the ground. In the scene where Zac Efron says he's going to dance for the girls, the part where Ike (in clown make up) says "You want me to go up with you?" - that last part isn't in there. See more »
I'll give this a 6/10 because it's still a solid high budget comedy starring some great talent.
The issue was too many jokes fell flat. The sorority sisters did not say or do anything I can remember laughing at.
The material was really weak. I love absurd random humor (Family Guy or basically any other Seth Rogen film), but some of the randomness in this film just lacked anything I found funny. Even worse, is that some of the randomness used in plot points really made you disconnected from the entire film and not care.
As I watched this film, I remembered how despite the shallow plot of Neighbors, I still loved it and it pulled me in. The fraternity was interesting and funny. In contrast, the sorority of Neighbors 2 lacked any good jokes. The sorority sisters actually managed to pull off something that no actors have ever done in all of history. They were so unfunny, they almost made Seth Rogen not funny.
On the plus side, It's only 90 minutes and I don't remember ever feeling bored or sleepy during the movie or wanting to walk out early. So for that this movie has earned a solid 6/10.
