Could this sequel live up to the original? Would this movie only be good because Zac Efron get's his shirt off? Lets face it, it’s a sequel so everyones expectations are already low.
The movie starts off with everyone finding out that Mac and Kelly are expecting their second child and are now selling their house so they can afford the new house they've already bought.
The frat house next door has been empty and quiet, a perfect environment for selling a house.
It's not long until the house has a buyer and the house is put into escrow, which pretty much means the buyers have 30 days to renege if they're not happy. No surprise that the new buyers aren't happy when sorority Kappa Nu moves in next door. Meanwhile Teddy Sanders, played by Zac Efron, is looking for his place in the world after his roommate and best friend Pete, played by Dave Franco, gets engaged moves his fiancé in which means Teddy needs to move out and start living his own life.
Teddy struggles with this concept of finding his place in the world and being wanted. He team's up with the girls from Kappa Nu and puts his skills to use, helping the girls create their own 'No Rules' sorority.
Not long after the girls start to rake in the cash, Teddy starts to push back on their poor spending decisions and via text chat the girls vote Teddy out of the house, forcing him back on the street and so begins his desire for revenge.
In the meantime, Mac and Kelly, played by Seth Rogan and Rose Byrne, are trying to get the sorority to behave for what seems like the longest 30 days in history. Shockingly that doesn’t happen and the sorority girls make their life a living hell by breaking into their house, taking their furniture and selling it on the side of the road.
Of course everything sorts itself out in the end and the sorority girls realise that it's not the house that is Kappa Nu it's them and you shouldn't have to change yourself to be able to fit in. So heartwarming.
If you're looking for a movie that is ball dropping good, when you see the movie you will get that, then this movie does get some great laughs. Compared to Bad Neighbours this movie does have more of a storyline and take home moral points. If you liked the first movie, you will enjoy this sequel.
