Bad Neighbours 2: Sorority Rising is better known in the US as ‘Neighbors 2’, but (a) we spell that word differently, and (b) Neighbours is the name of an Aussie soap that I long since stopped watching.
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 neighbourhood, new sorority houses move in, one led by Madison (Selena Gomez) – who don’t have any parties (initially, at least), and one led by Shelby (Chloë Grace Moretz), and the latter at least is even more out of control than the last.
How to resolve this? It can only be from their ex-neighbour, Teddy (Zac Efron), who made the couple’s life a misery in Bad Neighbours.
Also starring Dave Franco, Ike Barinholtz, Lisa Kudrow and Dope‘s Kiersey Clemons who’s in the latter sorority house, like the first film, the trailer did give me a few laughs (even if it did repeat the airbag gag), but most of the jokes were in the trailer. And the Blu-ray and DVD featured more footage than in the cinema, as is often the case these days in a bid to make you buy it twice, so I’ll wait for that one.
Bad Neighbours 2: Sorority Rising is released in the UK on May 6th 2016.
