With a gross of over one hundred and fifty million dollars in the in U.S. box office, Bad Neighbours was sure to get a sequel sooner or later. With the recent release of Bad Neighbours 2, movie goers can expect the same pre-packaged laughs and a few new additions to the cast to ensure the film is not an exact repeat of its predecessor.
The film resumes a few years after the original, Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Bryne) are a few years older and wiser (we hope) in parenthood and are attempting to sell their house in order move on to a new family neighbourhood. However as this occurs, Teddy (Zac Efron) Mac and Kelly’s old hell raiser of a neighbour has seen better days. In a place of self-loathing and living in the past he attempts to mentor a young female-fraternity who move in next door to Mac and Kelly. This creates a turn of events that snowball out of control.
For those that have seen the original, expect much of the same. The gags are repeated including the certain sex scenes and the use of airbags. However, there are so many gags inserted into the film and along with along a mixture of sexist and feminist the humour that all pans out.
As far as casting the films reprised cast all seem to have a certain chemistry on screen and this is seen particularly from Seth Rogen and Zac Efron. Their buddy antics and comedic rapport remind me of a poor man’s version of Channing Tatum Jonah Hill from the 21 Jump Street Films. It appears Zac Efron is beginning to move on from his High School Musical days and develop a comedic style while Seth Rogen realises age ticks on but he can still make us chuckle with the best of them.
Chloe Grace Moretz steps in as the films new main antagonist as a young liberated feminist out to have fun at the expense of Mac and Kelly. Her role as Shelby was well written and expertly acted. It took a different direction to the first film and gave enough of a new template for audiences to be entertained with a fresh character.

Bad Neighbours 2 is essentially a carbon copy of the original. Same actors, same plot, same gags but with some additions to the cast and some on screen chemistry; there is enough there to entertain audiences of the type of audience it caters to.
