So for a couple weeks I was letting this movie sink in. When I first saw it I didn’t like it at all. Sure, my hopes were pretty high for this movie. I love Seth Rogan, Zac Efron, and Chloe Grace Moretz. PLUS, the first movie is one of my favorite comedies! After 2 weeks, I still don’t like it… The previews paint this as a complete rehash of the original, but with girls. For the most part that is what it is, and I could have lived with that. After all, that is all I wanted out of it! What I received was a giant political statement about feminism and not much more. The most I ever got out of a joke was a chuckle, and those never came from the new additions to the cast. What I did get a lot of however was feminist speeches and talks about why college guys are terrible. And yes, I can agree to most of what they were saying but THAT IS NOT WHY I WENT TO THIS MOVIE… Beyond that though I realized what made the first movie so great is that you liked both sides. The frat was awesome and they all partied together. Half the time I didn’t know who I was rooting for! In this one the girls are just full on ruining these parents lives… Needless to say, I am NOT a fan.
