Blockers

An above average comedy which splits its time between the archetypal teenagers planning to lose their virginity at prom and the archetypal concerned parents trying to control their teenager’s activities. What breathes new life into these tropes is that the views on sex here are much more progressive than usual for films of this nature, and the comedic performances are great (particularly from Geraldine Viswanathan, but the entire main cast is solid). Some of the gags are quite hokey, reminding you that this is indeed a Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg produced film, but the moments where the film succeeds overshadow the times where it doesn’t.
