‘Neighbors 2’ Red Band Trailer: Drugs, Parties and Sex Toys
Besides being hilarious, Neighbors never struck me as the kind of movie that needed a sequel. Frat moves in next store to family, they fight, they resolve, fin. But, Neighbors made so much money, there was no chance there wasn’t going to be a sequel, and now here we are. So far, the trailers have been underwhelming, but this new red-band Neighbors 2 trailer has been the best thing yet and provides some serious laughs.
Also, if you ever wanted to see such a thing, features LL Cool J holding a giant, wobby dildo.
Yes, this seems like a complete rehash of the first movie (even recycling yet another Seth Rogen gets launched by an airbag joke), but as long as it’s funny, it doesn’t matter all that much. Most comedy sequels have trouble providing any laughs (yes, we’re looking at you Zoolander 2), so if you have to recycle some plot, we’ll look the other way if it makes for a good movie.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Now that Mac (Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Byrne) 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 neighborhood and were safe to sell, they learn that the new occupants next door are a sorority even more out of control than Teddy (Efron) and his brothers ever dreamed of being.
Tired of their school’s sexist, restrictive system, the unorthodox ladies of Kappa Nu have decided to start a house where they can do whatever the hell they want. When Shelby (Moretz) and her sisters, Beth (Kiersey Clemons) and Nora (Beanie Feldstein), find the perfect place just off campus, they won’t let the fact that it’s located on a quiet street stand in their way of parties as epic as the guys throw.
Forced to turn to the one ex-neighbor with the skills to bring down the new Greeks next door, the Radners — alongside best friends Jimmy (Ike Barinholtz) and Paula (Carla Gallo) — bring in charismatic Teddy as their secret weapon. If he can infiltrate the sorority and charm his way through it, the thirtysomethings will shutter the Kappas’ home. But if they think that their neighbors are going down without a fight, they have severely underestimated the power of youthful ingenuity and straight-up crazy.
Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising hits theaters on May 20.
