What it's about:

Now that Mac and Kelly Radner have a second baby on the way, they are ready to make the final move into adulthood: the suburbs. But, just as they thought they’d reclaimed the neighbourhood and were safe to sell, they learn that the new occupants next door are a sorority even more out of control than Teddy and his brothers ever dreamed of being.

What we thought:

I watched the first Bad Neighbours flick when I was 29 and about to turn 30. (See the review here)

Back then, just like the characters in the film, I struggled to adjust to the impending arrival of adulthood. 

Now I’m 31 and just like the leads in the adult comedy sequel I’ve adapted to the inevitable – being a grownup.

In Bad Neighbours 2 the original cast returns with a few fresh faces including Chloë Grace Moretz. But instead of a fraternity filled with bros we are introduced to the girls from a sorority. 

But don’t be misguided by the pre-conceived ideas of what you think a sorority should be, because Kappa Kappa Nu is not your average sorority. 

Bad Neighbours 2 feels like a natural progression from the first film and even dares to take on more mature and serious themes. 

The film unapologetically takes on hard-to-swallow truths and kicks sexism and racism in the balls. It also doesn’t flinch at shading scandalous newsmakers like Bill Cosby. 

Be assured that despite taking on serious social issues the flick’s success is still securely rooted in its rude, under-the-belt humour that will probably make your mother skaam. 

The flick also deserves kudos for introducing a gay character that’s free of clichés and homophobic prejudice. The writers, which included Seth Rogen, do a fine job at capturing the essence of a millennial-generation that’s not confined by conservative convention. 

If dildos make you blush and the word “cock” leaves you in shock then stay far away. Bad Neighbours 2 is a ballsy comedy that’s fucking fun to watch!
