    Not Superior, but Equally Funny & Pointed Sequel

    Two summers ago we were introduced to Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) Miller, a couple who'd just welcomed their first child into the world and purchased their first home in what were natural steps towards adulthood. That seemingly smooth transition was abruptly interrupted when they learned they were actually living next door to a fraternity. Led by incorrigible party guy Teddy Sanders (Zac Efron) the two households went head to head with one another in a war of wits and schemes that once again conveyed the age old lesson of Seth Rogen comedies in that there comes a time in every young man's life when it's time to become a confused man-child. While this interesting, albeit somewhat contrived premise worked wonders the first time proving fertile ground for consistent and interesting comedy, it was such a singular type of event that to make a sequel would seem to automatically cheapen the effect of the first film. Lucky for us, director Nicolas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) along with Rogen and longtime writing partner Evan Goldberg as well as Brendan O'Brien and Andrew Jay Cohen have crafted a screenplay that not only allows for this same premise to work again, but also uses this set-up to make legitimate social commentary. Executing comedy successfully is difficult enough, but to on top of that endeavor to actually say something substantial in between your drug jokes is admirable, at the very least. What this comes down to is placing a fledgling sorority (led by the likes of Chloë Grace Moretz, Dope's Kiersey Clemons, and Beanie Feldstein) in the house where Teddy's Delta Psi once resided. In doing this, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising is able to transform itself from simply giving the Miller's another challenge in sleep deprivation to a film that analyzes the inherent double standards of society by exposing how our system has more or less been cultivated to give males the advantage in the majority of circumstances. The issue of being able to party may be a trivial one, but this is obviously an in to a bigger means and that Neighbors 2 makes you contemplate anything at all is rather impressive.

    By The Numbers Sequel (But Still Funny)

    My wife and I saw Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising in theaters when it came out in 2016 . As soon as it was released to DVD, it became part of our home collection. Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne are at it again, this time versus the local sorority. The movie is about a couple who is looking to sell their home. It seems like the opportune time since the fraternity next door is gone, but enter a new sorority, with Efron as their mentor. Hilarity ensues as Rogen and Bryne go to war against Efron and his adopted sorority. War is declared as Rogen and Bryne find themselves pranking the Sorority and vice versa. It is laugh out loud funny. My wife and I can relate to this style of sarcastic humor. It may seem brash, or crude, but you can't please everyone. Film buffs and critics alike certainly will not enjoy this movie, but if you're just looking for a laugh, I recommend sitting down with a beer and Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising.

    My fiance and I both loved the original " Neighbors," so we were equally excited to see the sequel, bringing back most of our old favorites and introducing some newer young stars. I was equally satisfied with the sequel but for different reasons. I was very happy that this wasn't just a rehashing of the original. Changing it from a fraternity to a sorority was a stroke of genius. Neighbors 2 didn't have the exact same raunchy humor from the original, but made the humor a bit more elevated; a humorous discussion about sexism in the Greek system (and in life). Not to say there were no gross out moments but they were used to make a point about hypocrisy. All in all, I came out of the theater a happy movie goer! My fiance, however, not so much. He thought it was missing the spark from the original. We can agree to disagree.

    I found the first neighbors to be an odd combination of comedy and towards the middle turned serious and somewhat frightening. This one carries the comedy through the whole movie. Seth and Rose and expecting their 2nd child and want to move to the suburbs, the want to sell their house and oh no, a sorority movies in where the fraternity used to be. Zac is initially on the girls side but then they ridicule him as being too old so he defects to seth's side to get rid of the girls. This is more fun but also had some very poignant scenes. Dave Franco, for instance. Zac does not want to grow up and his college friends have to make him. I loved this because there was more meat on this old bone and because everyone performed above and beyond. I do recommend this still raunchy type of movie to those that are interested.

    A rare sequel that surpasses the original

    Rogen, Byrne, and Efron really interact hilariously together. I get the feeling a lot of the funnier stuff was ad-libed, the script doesn't seem to be all the great, the pacing of in the middle of the movie feels a little off. The flow of the (over time) pranks between the frat and Rogen and Byrne don't seem right, and are a little off. That being said, I found most the rest of the film to be pretty funny. It didn't have the heart of a Apatow movie, but it also isn't bogged down by being 30 minutes too long like most Apatow efforts. Byrne is the real surprise, as she isn't known for being a comedic actress, but does very well here and working off of Rogen and Efron. Efron also deserves a little bit of credit. He's not great, but he's good, and can perhaps develop into a decent actor.

    Fun Movie for the family!

    This movie is fun for the family as long as your children are not VERY young. This is primarily due to language and a few adult situations. Not quite as good as the first one but as far as a sequel goes, this one is fun to watch. The main cast members are back. If you enjoyed the first Neighbors movie, you will definitely enjoy this one. Good value as Best Buy has this movie for a reasonable price with Blue Ray/DVD/Digital Download. Purchasing this movie makes much more sense if you will be watching it more than once or want to share with friends and family.

    Comedy is probably my favorite genre of movie and I typically enjoy Seth Rogen films. This movie as a sequel was funnier than the first which I also enjoyed. There were so many laugh out loud moments my wife and I truly enjoyed this film to the fullest! There were a few moments in the film that were a little bit over-the-top but still funny in a rock kind of way. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who doesn't mind a little bit of obscene, raw comed, a well written film and a great cast filled with hilarious laugh out loud moments!

    Not as funny as the first one.

    I'm sorry to say this second part of Neighbor's was a bit of a disappointment. It wasn't as funny as the first one. It was a bit disturbing to see a toddler and a baby having an "adult private prop" as a favorite toy, because the parents didn't want to upset the child in any way by taking it away. They do admit in the movie they are bad parents. The drug paraphernalia throughout the home and "adult private prop carrying" child kinda proves that point, in my opinion. And that's my review of this movie.
