BLOCKERS, (because nobody is allowed to say or print the real, full title of this movie for fear of getting in trouble from the censors), is a fun, funny film that has some heartwarming moments, and some of the most cringe-worthy scenes you will ever witness on the big screen.
It is a coming-of-age story for the kids in the film, but it is also a coming-of-age story for their parents as well. We see the kids start to realize that actions have consequences, while the parents begin to understand that their children need to have room to make their own choices and learn from their mistakes. Fortunately for us, the path they all take to get there is laugh-out-loud funny.
For those of you looking for a fun comedy, you need to know that this film is very R-rated. If you aren't a fan of continuous raunchy jokes, ridiculously awkward scenes of intimacy, bad language, and drug use you should steer clear of this movie. If you don't mind the mature nature of this film, you will laugh until your jaw hurts.
While the acting is nothing special, there are a couple of stand-out performances by the teens. John Cena also proves to the world that he can hang with the best of them when it comes to physical comedy.
BLOCKERS isn't a movie for everyone, but it is a comedy worth seeing.
