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.

Blockers is a case where the movie has an interesting, albeit creepy, premise but reduces it to the most bare gross-out humor.

Sorry, but you can't try to get sentimental at the end of a movie that featured butt-chugging.

Parents scared of their own irrelevancy in the face of their children growing up is a tale as old as time. We know the kids are alright, but maybe once it'd be nice to show how that came to be.

Blockers is good, but just not as funny as one would hope.
March 12, 2018
It had the potential to make a dent in the female coming of age genre.

There are some lessons learned and fun to be had throughout Blockers' high jinks, misunderstandings, wieners, and kids having access to far doper prom partying than I ever did, but none of it really lands.

The vast majority of jokes found in this film are clearly written by men. I can't think of a single woman that I know of who would write a joke about butt chugging.

Blockers ends up salting its own game by focusing on out-of-touch adults who aren't just struggling to deal with their daughters losing their virginity, but can't handle the entire millennial generation.

Viswanathan, Newton, and Adlon generate a bit of chemistry throughout, but it's undermined by the fundamentally mechanistic nature of Brian and Jim Kehoe's screenplay.

At this point, the drunk-night-out genre has become a never-ending game of Mad Libs. This time the blanks are lazily filled in with "high school senior girls," "sex pact" and "helicopter parents."

This movie has been described as "sex-positive" because it champions the girls' rights when it comes to determining their own sex lives. But all it does is prove that girls can have crude and lewd sex comedies just as much as the boys do.

Blockers' approach... is so old-fashioned that its makers - [debut director] Kay Cannon and screenwriters Brian and Jim Kehoe - took advantage of political correctness to update it. [Full review in Spanish]

On a positive note, this will probably best be remembered for giving the lusty trio of female offspring the ultimate power of post-formal hotel room-veto.

A third-generation Judd Apatow dupe: a little raunch, a lot of sentimentality - some of which even feels genuine.

Once we move to the parents pursuing their children from prom spot to after-prom spots, it becomes not just less funny but hard to watch at times.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Wallows in the kind of forced, saccharine sentimental schmaltz that much older films like Animal House and American Pie managed to avoid ... pretends to be progressive, but is actually mired in sloppy convention ... final twenty minutes are unwatchable.

It's a shame that the movie cuts back to the parents' hyperactive shenanigans so frequently, and that their story dominates the running time.

Even in a broad comedy, there's something sad at the core.

April 6, 2018
The acting chemistry is exceptional but the movie misses a chance at a mature adult to teen connection. Instead we get John Cena's beer butt scene and two awkward sex scenes.
