Review of Blockers (2018) by Tim M — 08 Aug 2018
Anyone riding on a Delta flight right now can watch this free. It's a funny coming of age movie from both the parents and the girls' perspectives. It's silly yes, but smarter than your basic crappy comedy, and it does have some touching moments due to some excellent acting by Mann and the guy from the Mindy Project (good for him breaking out).
Jon Cena keeps his shirt on until a scene in the credits, so don't turn it off too soon. It's easy to identify with single mom Mann's love for her daughter and fear of the day she goes away to college.
I really applaud the writers for this one, because even though it was cliche at times, it really was enjoyable and I recommend it.
Blockers has generally received positive reviews.
