Newsclip®: [Entertainment] Sorority twist in 'Neighbors 2' is smart - Houston Chronicle

"Sorority Rising interesting; it bucks the trend in a way that doesn't destroy the original appeal of this film about college coeds battling their adult neighbors. The sorority is the smart twist in this script as a trio of outsider freshman coeds form their own sorority after learning 'accredited' sororities can't throw their own parties. [...] Kappa Nu is formed by Shelby (Chloë Grace Moretz), Beth (Kiersey Clemons) and Nora (Beanie Feldstein) so the sisters can party to their hearts' content. Wherein the first installment uses frat-boy king Teddy (Efron, shirtless again) to get viewers to relate to the social-life-or-future-building argument youngsters in higher education face, the sequel explores a biased system handicapping the youth and equality of college-age ladies. Among the Kappa Nu sisters, more interesting is Clemons, the bright spot of last year's funky coming-of-age film 'Dope,' who delivers every dirty line with conviction",
