OUR RATING: ★★★☆☆
Story: Comedy sequel directed by Nicholas Stoller which follows Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Rose Byrne) who now have a second baby on the way and are ready to make the final move into adulthood: the suburbs. But just as they thought they’d reclaimed the neighborhood and were safe to sell, they learn that the new occupants next door are a sorority.
Tired of their school’s sexist, restrictive system, the unorthodox ladies of Kappa Nu run by Shelby (Chloë Grace Moretz) and her sisters, Beth (Kiersey Clemons) and Nora (Beanie Feldstein) decide to start a house where they can do whatever the hell they want. So the couple enlist Teddy (Zac Efron), alongside best friends Jimmy (Ike Barinholtz) and Paula (Carla Gallo) to help them reclaim the neighborhood, sell their home and move to the suburbs.
Verdict: This is pretty much a recycled plotted sequel but for the most part the comedy works almost just as well as the first movie. Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne still have a great chemistry together and the rest of the cast all do a good job. It wasn’t a necessary sequel, but if you enjoyed the first movie, you’ll probably enjoy this one.REVIEWS
