MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising’ is the rare sequel that tries

Film: Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising Directed by: Nicholas Stoller Starring: Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, Zac Efron Do sequels really need to exist?

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Neighbors’

Film: Neighbors Directed by: Nicholas Stoller Starring: Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, Dave Franco Seth Rogen and his familiar brand of gross-out gags, vulgar language and oft-times belly laugh inducing humor excels in another strong comedic outing with Neighbors.
