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.
This is a very unneeded sequel. I’m not saying I’m not going to watch it, because I am, but it is very unnecessary. Neighbors 2 follows Mac and Kelly Radner again trying to get rid of a college house. I’m going to suspend my disbelief again that a guy like Seth Rogan can get a girl like Rose Byrne…. I can not, however, believe that a family is unlucky enough to have a frat move in next door THEN a sorority move in… I love Chloe Grace Moretz though, I have big crush on her. I also love Zac Efron and have an equally big crush on him. So, it is very awesome they are both in this!.. The bad part of this trailer though, is it is not even that funny. What concerns me is if they can’t even find funny parts for this trailer, what will the movie be like? Will the creepy clown laugh be the only funny part?! Either way, I’ll watch this because I liked the original. Half of you will watch this for the sorority girls. The other half will watch it for Zac Efron and Dave Franco. Inevitably, it will be a huge hit!
