BLOCKERS

Cert 15 102min Stars 3

Helicopter parenting takes flight to a whole new level in this raunchy comedy.

Three teenagers make a sex-pact to relieve themselves of their virginity on Prom night, though in a twist on similar films, the students are all girls and one is same-sex curious. 

Kathryn Newton, Geraldine Viswanathan and Gideon Adlon bring a likeable energy as they pursue an evening of prodigious consumption of alcohol, drugs and sex.

Their chemistry creates a convincing bubble of camaraderie, and their chosen targets are paid more than lip-service in screen-time.

John Cena, Leslie Mann, and Ike Barinholtz are the hapless parents who learn of their children’s plan and team up to block it.

Increasingly desperate as they chase their kids from party to party, the adults suffer indignities such as beer contests, car crashes, and interrupting the wrong people’s sex games.

Six writers claim responsibility for the script and they generate an average of one decent laugh each during the undemanding and uncomplicated fun.
