Directed by Kay Cannon

Close friends Julie, Kayla and Sam have grown up together, gone to school together and now Prom Night has arrived. They make a secret pact to lose their virginity but then their parents find out. And the race is on to stop it happening.
If 2017 was the Year Of Horror – and a literally bloody good year it was – what are the chances of 2018 being the Year Of Comedy? After the procession of dismally unfunny efforts churned out last year – with the exceptions of The Big Sick and Logan Lucky – it can’t do much worse. But this month has been bookended by comedies which promise more to come: first it was Game Night and now Blockers.
Neither premise nor title inspire confidence, making it an even bigger and more pleasant surprise.
