Directed by Kay Cannon, Blocker’s follows three parents who discover their daughters’ pact to lose their virginity at prom. The parents launch a covert one-night operation to stop the teens from sealing the deal. Leslie Mann (The Other Woman, This Is 40), Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors, Suicide Squad) and John Cena (Trainwreck, Sisters) star in Blockers, the directorial debut of Kay Cannon. She is the writer of the Pitch Perfect series.
I know this is supposed to be funny, but being kidnapped in a foreign country doesn’t seem like a funny situation.
It all starts after her boyfriend dumps her on the eve of their exotic vacation, impetuous dreamer Emily Middleton, played by Amy Schumer, persuades her ultra-cautious mother, Linda, played by Goldie Hawn, to travel with her to paradise.
Polar opposites, Emily and Linda realize that working through their differences as mother and daughter – in unpredictable, hilarious fashion – is the only way to escape the wildly outrageous jungle adventure they have fallen into.
Kidnapping occurs in our cities, not just other countries. It is really hard for me to get excited about this movie even though Goldie Hawn is starring in the comedy.
