Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

They don’t understand the most important role of sisterhood. There’s no ‘I’ in ‘Sorority’.
14 November 2016

A follow up to the 2014 comedy (hit?). This time a group of young women, annoyed with the rules of current sororities, want to start their own next to Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne’s house, but it’s causing problems with the impending sale of the building. More partying and neighbourly antics ensue.

Hollywood execs can now firmly pat themselves on the back and say they care about women because they made a film about women partying instead of men. Try to ignore that it’s the same formulaic bullshit as the last one.

It doesn’t really warrant much more discussion. The obsession with weed, the ‘message’ about being who you want to be, Seth Rogen’s face… it’s all too smug to take.
