well have been played by a CG char­ac­ter. Still, the new mu­tants in­tro­duced in this ad­ven­ture are an ap­peal­ing bunch.

BAD NEIGH­BOURS 2

A re­hash of the first film, it is sur­pris­ingly en­ter­tain­ing, thanks largely to its un­ex­pect­edly timely hu­mour.

Mac and Kelly (Seth Ro­gen and Rose Byrne) are par­ents of a young daugh­ter, although this time they have an­other girl on the way, and they’re look­ing for­ward to mov­ing into a larger, nicer home.

The only kink in their plan is sell­ing their house. The good news is the fra­ter­nity from the last movie has moved out of the house next door and a fam­ily is in­ter­ested in Mac and Kelly’s home.

The bad news? The prospec­tive buy­ers will prob­a­bly back out as soon as they dis­cover that the next-door neigh­bours are a law­less up­start soror­ity.

The jokes, this time, though, are sur­pris­ing timely, re­mind­ing view­ers of the ways men and women are held to dif­fer­ent stan­dards.
