The directorial debut by Kay Cannon (writer Pitch Perfect, director Cinderella), Blockers is a film that will make you laugh until you cry and cry at parenthood until you laugh. When three parents (played by John Cena, Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz) stumble upon their daughters’ pact to lose their virginity at prom, they launch a covert one-night operation to stop the teens from sealing the deal. Hailed as the “perfect comedy for the current era” by Vanity Fair, Blockers is a gender-swapped spin on the classic teen sex comedy, filled with outrageous antics from the parents as their daughters take control of their epic prom night. A certified FOFIF favorite!
