To give you an example of one of the many scenes that spelled this movie’s doom: at one point, Chloe and crew throw real used tampons at a mom, dad and baby. Apparently we’re supposed to be supporting this because feminism. THEN, Chloe draws a false parallel and says Zac is being sexist because if he’d thrown a bag of dicks that’d be okay. I don’t know what fucking planet you live on, but getting hit with a clean synthetic rubber tube is NOT the same as getting hit with a bloody rag of uterine lining that could transmit fucking AIDS.
Anyway, time for a half-review half-rant on Neighbors 2. The review: it’s eh, at best. Onto the rant.
So many politically correct assholes on Rotten Tomatoes are calling this movie a progressive feminist story, solely because it shows college sorority chicks can be just as stupid as frat bros. WOW, so you’re telling me no matter what gender you are you can still be a total loser in college?!?!?!
Give me a break. Yes, if you’re a college girl and this “empowers” you to be a dumb-ass through your time in (supposed) higher education, be my guest, be a moron. But at the end of the day, whether you’re in a frat or sorority, male or female, remember: you always have the option to not be a dip-shit and actually make something of yourself.
Basically, the third wave feminist agenda has spun out of control to such a point where it’s empowering to be a joint-rolling prospectless teenage girl who makes stupid decisions and openly commits crimes against a nice couple simply because “fight the establishment.” It’s everything you can hate about Bernie, millennials and third wave feminism rolled into one.
On the bright side, Zac Efron is very funny and leads the show. Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne are basically cameos in their own movie because of this. There’re some funny throw down scenes. Dave Franco’s gay now, because the director openly admitted he wanted to shoehorn in a gay character to check off the last box on the list. Let’s count: black guy who makes fun of cop shootings? Check. Edgy feminist chick who’s a complete loser? Check. Token fat chick and black girl backup singers for aforementioned edgy feminist? Check. Gay guy? Cheeeeeeeeeck.
I just wish Chloe Moretz had had the guts to call out this idiotic script for encouraging blatant delinquency, rather than pretend it’s “progressive.” But no, no, her and the rest of this shitfest will continue to call it feminist because apparently… wait… it makes sense! They’re arguing for the right to be obnoxiously progressive by being fucking morons! That’s literally the moral of the story! Now it makes sense.
In short: if you like the usual slew of politically correct buzz phrases and insanely flawed gender argument logic shoved down your throat in the name of entertainment, check out this movie. Sane people, stay away.
