Bad Neighbors 2 hits the screens of Bridgnorth this weekend. Rated 15 and directed by Nicholas Stoller, it’s showing daily at 6:30pm and 8:40pm.
Charlie Pugh gives us his review:
Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Rose Byrne) are now expecting their second child and have finally got a buyer for their house. In the middle of their 30 day escrow their peaceful lives are shattered by the arrival of the all-girls sorority, Kapper Kapper Nu and their leader Shelby (Chloe Grace Moretz). To save the sale Mac and Kelly are forced to join forces with their old enemy, Teddy (Zac Efron), to save this situation.
Although this film isn’t as funny or as good as the first due to a convoluted narrative which is crammed with subplots, nevertheless Nicolas Stoller is at his strongest when writing dialogue and comedy.
Once again Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne provide the acting highlights with their teamwork. Zac Efron is OK, but a bit underdeveloped compared to the last film, and Chloe Grace Moretz does a better job as sympathetic antagonist than her last outing in The 5th Wave.
Overall Bad Neighbours 2 may not be as funny as the first one, but it’s still worth seeing if you’re a fan of Seth Rogen and stoner comedies in general.
