Blockers' crude humor may not be for everyone

April 17, 2018

If you’re looking to watch a film loaded with adult humor and references, I’ve got the perfect one for you.

 

Blockers, a film about a group of high school teenagers planning to lose their virginity on prom night, is wild from beginning to end.


The film stars WWE wrestling legend John Cena, who has premiered in films such as Trainwreck (2015) and animated film Ferdinand (2017).

(L-R) John Cena as Mitchell, Leslie Mann as Lisa, and Ike Barinholtz as Hunter in

Blockers which made $20,556,35 in the American opening weekend.

 


 Also starring are, Leslie Mann from The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005), Knocked Up (2007), and Ike Burinholtz from Suicide Squad (2016) and Central Intelligence (2016). All three play the single parents of teenagers Julie, Kay and Sam.


Blockers is directed by Kay Cannon and produced by Seth Rogen and they did not disappoint whatsoever.
The story was well written and the use of dirty jokes were used well.


 From the time I sat down to the time I left, I laughed just about the entire time. The audience was well into it and laughed plenty as well.


Music wise, there was not a whole lot of it playing as the movie wanted to catch your attention with humor.


To say the least, the parents went to hell and back just to try and save their kids’ innocence.A few bits of information about the making of the film, it had a budget of $21 million and has made $32.1 million at the box office so far according to an online source.


It has a run time of 1 hour and 42 minutes and is doing well in theaters with numerous, positive reviews from sites such as Rotten Tomatoes, IMDb, and Metacritic.


Now, let’s get back to the film itself. The actors did a job well-done which is something I cannot express enough. No matter what genre, acting and dialogue are key to a successful movie, just ask directors Stephen King, Quentin Tarantino, and Michael Bay.


The age group Blockers looks to attract, it would be at adults in their 20’s up to their 40’s because of certain topics and the age differences of the characters. That doesn’t mean people older shouldn’t see it though.


However, if strong cursing or sexual jokes and references upset you, I suggest not to watch it as just about every line in the film is full of it.


I enjoyed it but everyone has their own opinion and is free to think differently.


This is a movie where overusing derogatory, sexual terms mixed with comedy are allowed, along with parents doing unthinkable things.


If you find yourself laughing at inappropriate things throughout the film that other viewers in the theater aren’t, don’t be ashamed because people don’t have dirty minds only sexy imaginations.

 

I give this film 5 out of 5 stars, definitely one of the best films of 2018.It is currently playing at Cinemark 20 on Gateway West and other big theaters in El Paso. Safe viewing!
