John Cena stars in the new movie “Blockers”, opening nationwide on April 6th, and the comedy tells the story of two sets of parents attempting to “block” their children from losing their virginity on prom night. Below is the official movie synopsis:
When three parents stumble upon their daughters’ pact to lose their virginity at prom, they launch a covert one-night operation to stop the teens from sealing the deal. Leslie Mann (The Other Woman, This Is 40), Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors, Suicide Squad) and John Cena (Trainwreck, Sisters) star in Blockers, the directorial debut of Kay Cannon (writer of the Pitch Perfect series).
As of this writing, early reviews for “Blockers” are positive, as the film aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes currently has the movie at an 89% fresh rating.
Below are a few excerpts from top critic reviews.
It’s the little, almost imperceptible twists to the story that make Blockers a worthy entry into the teen sex comedy canon, most notably that girls and women are funny and can play more than the killjoy or the babe.
Cannon’s first feature stands out because the genre has so rarely received a woman’s touch, and it’s evident in the way the movie pokes fun at masculinity by making it irrelevant.
The Hollywood Reporter:
Blockers imagines a world in which teens, left to their own devices, are competent to make their own choices, and in which girls stand a fair chance of not regretting their first sexual experiences.
