What a relief female filmmaker Kay Cannon hit this one out of the park, and how nice the writers and producers, who were all men, realized they should have a female voice at the helm.

This is a sexy, gross take on the relationships of parents and kids as they grow up and out. It could have been very sappy and trite, but it is neither because it is smartly written and directed.

Nevertheless, at a brisk 102 minutes, which flies by thanks to the bulk of the action being set around a single night, a solid gag rate and immensely likeable cast, this is a funny and surprisingly moving treat.

There are some issues like the pacing and the way that the emotional elements work in and sometimes the jokes don't always land, but the good parts are really good.

Some good performances, a decent script, and a mildly different plot makes Blockers a film worth seeing.

At first glance, the premise comes off as stale and lame: three Chicago high-school gfs make a pact to lose their virginity on prom night.

It leaves one fairly unsatisfied: the film definitely rises above its premise, but the bottom line is that it simply does not rise enough.

Represents a natural progression of a genre that has long been trapped in regressive ideas of sexuality, and treats its characters not like objects, but like fully developed human beings

The sugary sweet love story of Sam and Angelica in Blockers is just right, and it's the one we need to watch on repeat.

This is a big crowd pleasing comedy that subtly breaks convention in its treatment of women whilst preserving its mainstream mentality to keep audiences at bay.

Cannon also revels in putting the trio of adults through a series of increasingly cartoonish trials, such as a scene where Kayla's dad (John Cena) agrees to a butt-chugging contest in order to prove that he's not a cop trying to bust up the party.

Blockers could contend with some of the fantastic indie comedies of recent years that are approaching the coming-of-age genre with wit and warmth. Unfortunately, too often Blockers settles for the cheap and crass.

While "Blockers" was directed by a woman, it also has not one, but two male writers who manage to blend raunch and heart with some good social commentary.

Blockers is a great comedy with a a great script, subversive storytelling and genre execution and a fantastic cast that are sure to make you laugh and even make you feel a bit emotional.

A comedy that isn't all that funny, Blockers succeeds mostly thanks to the comfy chemistry between its leads and the surprisingly decent message running through it.
December 12, 2018
A bearable bawdy pro-feminist comedy, even if it had no emotional impact on me and the comedy rushed by me as it makes its way to its target audience.

BLOCKERS is deft, quick witted, and funny. There are good to great performances from stem to stern. This is one to see in theatres with a big audience and let yourself get swept up in the energy.

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.
November 8, 2018
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.

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.
