Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

Seth Rogen's follow up to 2014's surprise hit Neighbors gets the entire gang back together. This time around, the experienced antics of the Delta Psi guys are replaced by the upstart shenanigans of a fledgling sorority. Recap Three girls, Shelby (Chloe Grace Moretz), Beth (Kiersey Clemons), and Nora (Beanie Feldstein) have decided that they want to start their own sorority. They're all new at college, but they don't like the uptight atmosphere of the soririties they visit and they don't like going to fraternity parties that have an openly mysoginistic and rape-y atmosphere. They happen to get shown the house that belonged to the Delta Psi brothers in the previous movie. While they're there, they meet Teddy (Zac Efron) who's feeling down on himself because his friend's lives are moving forward and he feels like he's going nowhere. Wanting to feel valued, he offers his services to the girls to help them set up and fund their new sorority, Kappa Nu (god help any sorority that actually has that designation). This is not great news for Mac and Kelly Radner (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne), who are expecting their second child and are looking to move out of the neighborhood. They have a potential buyer for the house, but the sale is in escrow. This means that the buyers have 30 days to inspect the house and back out of the sale. So, having a sorority move in next door, aided by their old nemesis, is a very big problem for them. Having experienced this before, they


Even though I had this movie on my "top 10 movies to watch for the summer" list, I don't think I was actually expecting it to be as good as it was. This Rated-R comedy is about 1 1/2 hours of well paced comedy that definitely holds up to the positive reviews it received before its release. This movie is also smarter than I expected. There are several times during the movie when it pokes fun at itself, which helps show some self awareness. It knows exactly what it is and will keep you entertained throughout. Recap Neighbors is about Mac and Kelly Radner (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) a couple in their late 20's or early 30's that's just had a baby and bought a house. The couple is adjusting to the transition from going out and partying to being parents. As they're settling in to their new lives, they find out that their new next door neighbors are the Delta Psi Beta fraternity. "Delta Psi" is led by their President, Teddy (Zac Efron), and Vice President, Pete (Dave Franco). The Fraternity's only goal is to throw the most epic parties ever. Obviously, this isn't a great situation for a family with a baby but, the Radners try to "be cool" and make peace with the frat boys, they even party with them. However, the partying quickly becomes disruptive and they call the police which leads to a quickly  escalating conflict with their former frat friends. The rest of the movie is
