You’re probably familiar with Bad Neighbours. Who wouldn’t want to see Zac Efron on the big screen. If you’ve seen the original movie you’ve pretty much seen the second movie. The storylines are very similar which isn’t necessarily a bad thing but I do feel like they’ve re-used some of the funniest parts of the first movie.
Neighbors 2 is an American comedy film directed byNicholas Stoller and written by Stoller, Andrew J. Cohen, Brendan O’Brien, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. It is the sequel to the 2014 film Neighbors and stars Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, Chloë Grace Moretz, Dave Franco and Ike Barinholtz. Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Rose Byrne) are expecting their second child and preparing to sell their old house, which is subjected to a 30-day escrow. However, a newly established hard-partying sorority, Kappa Nu, led by Shelby (Chloë Grace Moretz), has moved into their neighboring house. To prevent the buyers pulling out, Mac and Kelly are soon forced to reunite with Teddy (Zac Efron) to help battle the sorority sisters.
Chloe Grace Moretz is the best thing that happened to this movie. Her character is sassy, real and I feel that she is the perfect actress to portray the character of Shelby. She’s cute and innocent but has a real sense of determination and drive. You see a different side of Zac Efron in this film. Usually he is the popular guy who get’s the girl in this film he is the broken character struggling to find his purpose in life. It was nice to see him playing such a different character. Personally I am not a fan of Rose Bryne in these movies. She just seems a bit winey and annoying. I know that sounds super rude and she is probably the most lovely person but something just annoys me about her character.
The soundtrack compliments the action happening on screen and features artists from Missy Elliot to Ke$ha. The directors and producers have chosen the perfect music for the party scenes. We’ve all got those tragic songs that we listen to at house parties. I feel sororities would have some pretty embarrassing soundtracks at their parties which they have portrayed through the choice of songs in the party scenes.
There is eye candy for days… for the girls who like boys and the boys who like boys there’s Zac Efron and Dave Franco and for the boys who like girls and the girls who like girls there’s Chloe Grace Moretz and Selena Gomez.
In no way is this movie life changing in no way was this movie created to change your life. It’s an easy watch, it’s got some eye candy, a few laughs overall I five it a 7 out of 10.
