The original Neighbors was a pretty damn hilarious movie. Seth Rogen did his reliably funny thing (yeah that’s right — fuck the haters); Zac Efron was bearable and serviceable; and Rose Byrne confirmed the deft comic touch and fantastic timing that should get her cast in every comedy.
It wasn’t anything life-changing, but it did exactly what it set out to do. Yes, that thing was a baby nearly swallowing a condom, but if that’s your thing (and it should be) then you’ll be well served by this new red band trailer for the sequel:
Trailers for comedies can be even more fraught than other movies as they so often spoil a good number of the best jokes. Let’s hope that this isn’t the case here, as that cracked me the hell up.
Nicholas Stoller is once again directing, as well as co-writing with Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Andrew Jay Cohen, and Brendan O’Brien.
Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising is released May 6th.
