Bad Neighbours (or Neighbors for the US audience) was a hit back in 2014 and its success at the box office meant a sequel was guarantied. But will the new neighbors be welcomed?
After a few years of peace Mac (Seth Rogan) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) are in the process of selling their house but their dreams are shattered when a sorority decides to move in next door. Fearing their house sell will be in jeopardy and unable to reason with the girls, Mac and Kelly turn to the one person who can help them- their old enemy Teddy (Zac Efron).
If you liked the first movie then you are probably going to enjoy the sequel-which is just as well considering it’s basically a repeat of the same plot as last time. The themes are pretty similar too -fear of growing up or behaving responsibly, Mac and Kelly behaving as irresponsible as the kids. The ending also wraps up everything a bit too conveniently.
However while it doesn’t score high on originality I did find it to be consistently funny all the way through. The antics and pranks may be immature but they did make me chuckle. And the Sorority girls are are surprisingly likeable and funny additions to the already amusing cast.
Rating 3.5/5 -unorginal it may be but it is funny
