Director: Kay Cannon Cast: Leslie Mann, John Cena Country: USA Language: English A smart and empathetic take on the often lazy and played-out sex comedy genre, Blockers follows three High School seniors as they aim to lose their virginity on prom night. After they get wind of their daughters’ plan, the parents of the teens attempt to stop it, for a variety of reasons, ranging from the bizarre to the slightly un-hinged. The film is incredibly sharp, having both energy and jokes in bucket-loads, and features several great performances from the likes of Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz. A directorial debut from Pitch Perfect writer Kay Cannon gives the story a fresh edge, allowing it to stand out in a crowded market, to great effect.
