It all starts going downhill around the time Jon Cena drinks beer through his butt. Until then, Blockers is a rather savvy and -- if you squint really hard -- even subversive comedy.

It has more good intentions than the capacity to know how to deliver its proposals in a satisfactory way. [Full Review in Spanish]

Over-the-top stupidity humor with laughs too far in between.
December 21, 2018
Tries so hard to be progressive by flipping the script from horny teenage boys to horny teenage girls, but the gender-swapped spin feels stale.
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.

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.

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]

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.

Things aren't quite as crude as they might have been, for which we can all be grateful.

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.
April 8, 2018
Tedious and unfunny virtually from start to finish...

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.
April 6, 2018
Other than some scattered big laughs, the labored concept plays out in predictable fashion as its mayhem funnels into a feel-good message of mutual understanding between kids and parents.
April 6, 2018
Blockers is good, but just not as funny as one would hope.
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.
April 6, 2018
Awkwardly tries to balance gross-out gags with tender, warm-and-fuzzy moments.
April 5, 2018
Even in a broad comedy, there's something sad at the core.
April 5, 2018
The shift in perspective and the ultimate message of the movie are two steps forward. The inclusion of the parents, though, feels like one, big step backwards.
April 5, 2018
What derails "Blockers" in the end is a curious lack of imagination, an inability to think beyond the raunch-com genre's most sentimental clichés.
