Rogan and Burns get new neighbors, this time it’s a sorority in Neighbors2: Sorority Rising!
Seth Rogan and Rose Byrne are back in the sequel to the 2014 generational comedy hit “Neighbors” battling college girls in “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising”. Joining the battle are friends Jimmy ( Ike Barinholtz), Paula (Carla Gallo) and previous nemesis Teddy (Zac Efron).
Mac and Kelly Radner (Rogan and Byrne) are happy again, relishing in the victory over the fraternity that moved in next door. They have sold their house and bought a new house in the suburbs with no neighbors in site. The only thing that can wreck their world is if the buyers back out while sale is in escrow for the next 30 days. During a love making session when Kelly vomits in Mac’s face, they learn Kelly is pregnant again!
Shelby (Chloe Grace Moritz), Beth (Kiersey Clemons) and Nora (Beanie Feldstein) are college freshman that are pledging a sorority. They learn that sororities have parties but all the real fun (drugs and drinking) happen at the fraternities. So Shelby decides to find a house and start their own sorority, Kappa Nu!
Teddy is lost now that he is forced to put his shirt on at Abercrombie, all his friends have moved on and best pal Pete (Dave Franco) is getting married to his boyfriend and kicking Teddy out. Homeless Teddy ends up back at the old house where it started and meets Shelby. Teddy explains to Shelby how to raise money for rent and throw the best parties in exchange for a place to live. This also give Teddy a way to get revenge on Mac and Kelly!
Mac and Kelly see the sorority moving in and seeing the sale of their house evaporating. They try to reason with Shelby and find out Teddy is pulling the strings! The battle resumes….
The trailers all claim that Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising is “better” than the original, but they are so wrong. I like Neighbors, but this version spends more time on the characters and very little on the battles between the neighbors. This movie is like going to a party at a fraternity and getting stale beer!
I am Karl the Flick Fanatic telling you to skip this class in neighborly hospitality, and save the money for beer!
