You say eggplant, I say aubergine, but let's not call the whole thing off -- as what starts as a standard frenetic comedy soon demonstrates it's perfectly possible to remove dated tropes and still produce a mainstream, funny and not remotely worthy movie.

Blockers is fruitful in its quest to explore the manic angst of parents who fear the worst for their kids and exploratory children who wish to be left to their own devices.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
November 2, 2018
The best jokes in Blockers rarely announce themselves as being big jokes, and it's these smaller moments and specific observations that most seem to interest director Kay Cannon.

For a screwball comedy, Blockers gives Gen-Xers a pertinent crash course in feminism.
Full Review | Original Score: B

I don't know that it's a classic, but I also don't know that it's nearly as predictable if you're the actual age of the teenage characters in the movie in which case it might be entirely fresh.

October 29, 2018
This is a comedy that works because of its talented cast and its willingness to play by the same raunchy rules as male-dominated comedies while retaining a notably sex-positive tone without sacrificing any laughs.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
October 27, 2018
Both a touching ode to the perils of young adulthood and a tribute to the difficulty of being a parent, the film is a terrifically entertaining comedy for all ages.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 25, 2018
For all of its potential, the film falls short of the finish line -- unable to balance laughs with sentimental moments that sap out all of the comedic moments the cast worked so hard at achieving.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
October 23, 2018
An obnoxious and embarrassing teen sex comedy that is sometimes a sincere and winning character study of friendship and family.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
October 17, 2018
Blockers is silly and fun from the outside, but scratch just beneath the surface of this teen sex comedy and you'll find important messaging about consent and inclusiveness.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.25/5

There's so much that could have gone wrong with "Blockers," and yet, it defies expectations.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
August 29, 2018
Blockers is a case where the movie has an interesting, albeit creepy, premise but reduces it to the most bare gross-out humor.
August 27, 2018
While it wasn't as funny as I thought it would be, and John Cena isn't quite there yet as a leading man in a movie...it's still funny and it still delivers laughs.
August 26, 2018
Blockers reminds us, albeit comically, that socially and culturally, we have a long way to go when judging boys and girl equally, sexually.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
August 25, 2018
A fun, modernized teen sex comedy with a hilarious ensemble and a welcoming directorial debut by Kay Cannon.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
August 24, 2018
Wholly enjoyable from start to finish due in no small part to this exceptional cast.
August 21, 2018
Blockers is what it is, a solid teen sex comedy. While the film does have some noted positives, it really isn't the progressive wonder which the marketing wants it to be.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
August 14, 2018
Sorry, but you can't try to get sentimental at the end of a movie that featured butt-chugging.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
August 10, 2018
A picture in the spirit of the early Farrelly brothers comedies, where a premise usually functioned as the glue holding together a mass of gross-outs.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
July 6, 2018
Blockers succeeds when it's being ridiculous and funny, but it's something special when it allows teen girls and single moms and female directors who hardly ever get to participate in the fun of mainstream comedies suddenly get seated at the table.
