(Cock) Blockers starts with a gender-reversed Superbad situation - teenagers plan to lose their virginity on prom night - but because the teen protagonists are girls, it's also about the parents trying to stop them from making what they view as a mistake. And don't worry, the double-standard isn't jut addressed, the film is ABOUT that double-standard. Any objections we might have had about the premise is indeed taken care of. Yes, there's dick jokes and gross-out comedy and very funny slapstick, but the movie is also respectful of young women, open-minded, heartwarming, and defies many of the expectations you might have built from the trailer and first act. A lot of people praise the adults, especially John Cena (who certainly has comedy chops), but I think the kids get a lot of funny things to say or do as well. It's an ensemble cast more than a three-hander. I shouldn't have been worried, this may be director Kay Cannon's first feature, but she was a director and producer on 30 Rock.
One of the most bored comedies in a long time.
Only John Cena could surprise positively...
Screened in Chicago, definitely the American Pie for the Millenial Generation. Funnier and more heartwarming than I expected. Jon Cena is the next Dwayne Johnson.
