Blockers looks like one of those 15-rated sweary gross-out comedies that I’m really getting tired of, and this one has the distinctly unpleasant premise of three parents (Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz – both above, and ex-WWE star John Cena) who’ve watched and loved their daughters as they grow up, and now they’ve just realised that the girls have discovered boys, and they have to try to stop their daughters from having sex on Prom night…
Why the hell would any parent even want to *think* about something like that??
It was bad enough that Mitchell (Cena) says he can’t chest-bump his daughter any more without “feeling her boobs”, making it sound like some dodgy Pornhub video, before things got worse and it descended into Bad Neighbours-style territory with a ‘butt-chugging’ beer contest.
As such, ‘Blockers‘ is so-called, because they’re ‘cock-blockers’, but you can’t put ‘cock’ in a title. Perhaps if they’d gone all ‘Alan Partridge’ and made it ‘cook’…
I haven’t heard of most of the people in Blockers, and I have no desire to see it when it’s released in the UK on April 6th, 2018.
