Pros and Cons:
Following the unprecedented success of 2014's Neighbours, here we have Neighbours 2! Comedy sequels have a 'great' track record as well producing gems such as The Hangover 2, Little Fockers and the absolute gem Big Momma's House 3. I'm joking if you can't see through my sarcasm. General speaking, comedy sequels are garbage and fail to capture the magic of the original.

However, this is an exception. Not only does Neighbours 2 capture the humour of the original, but greatly improves upon it. I personally did not find the original Neighbours terrifically entertaining - I thought it was quite bland and the gaps between the jokes were too large.

Neighbours 2 is incredibly funny from start to finish - producing wall to wall jokes that hit more often than not. That being said - there are some jokes that don't fly, but this would be applicable to most modern comedies.

Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne are as brilliant and convincing as ever as Mother and Father duo - and produce some truly gut busting laughs along the way. Zac Efron is his usual charismatic self, and his on screen demeanor is impressive. It seems as though he will not be leaving the adult comedy scene for a while. The other cast member including new addition Chloe Grace Moretz are brilliant - and add a lot more to the film than the male cast members from the original.

The film also has a very interesting sociological agenda - primarily criticizing the sexist and derogatory structure of the frat system in the USA. It sports a little more concern and brains than most modern comedies, and it really is welcome return to form.

In the end, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising will make you laugh, cry, and cringe consistently all at the same time, and I can guarantee you'll leave the theater with an ear to ear smile on your face.

Rating: I'll  give it Four Stars
