How Kay Cannon Shattered a Glass Ceiling by Directing ‘Blockers’

How Kay Cannon Shattered a Glass Ceiling by Directing ‘Blockers’
Kay Cannon’s “Blockers” scored big at the weekend box office with $21.4 million. The R-rated comedy is like “Bridesmaids” meets “American Pie,” with a script that follows a group of three high school seniors (played by Kathryn Newton, Geraldine Viswanathan and Gideon Adlon) who make a pact to lose their virginity on prom night. When their parents (Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz and John Cena) find out about the scheme, they try to foil it.

Blockers” follows in the tradition of Judd Apatow’s “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” and “Trainwreck,” as an R-rated comedy that takes no prisoners. But in Hollywood, for the most part, these films are typically made by men. Cannon, a first-time director who produced “Pitch Perfect” and wrote for “30 Rock,” is shattering a glass ceiling by proving female directors can join that club. She spoke to Variety about the film, how it plays in the Time’s

Film Review: Bottom Line is ‘Blockers’ Has Some Decent Laughs

Chicago – Comedy is purely subjective, and the new film ‘Blockers’ sets out to prove it, by expectorating joke after joke in all categories of sophistication. Physical pratfalls, witty asides, gross-out, sex, nudity, drugs, surrealism and more are all on the humor buffet, so pick, choose and laugh, as they pile it on.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Produced by the comedy mavens Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, among others, the story is basically framed within their style of keeping the humor flowing fast and furious. Some joke doesn’t land? They’ll be another one in a about a minute. It’s interesting in a pace like this frenzy that the film still seems overlong, but that really just has to do with the plot… parents wanting to deny their teenage daughters the opportunity to lose their virginity on prom night. It’s easy to guess the outcomes, which pretty much come to form within a bunch of clichés,

Blockers Review #2: Teen Sex Comedy Delivers an Enlightened Twist

Blockers Review #2: Teen Sex Comedy Delivers an Enlightened Twist
Blockers gives the tried and true formula of horny teenagers losing their virginity an enlightened spin. The film is seen from the girls' perspective with their horrified parents in tow. It mixes in a healthy dose of heart to go with the raunchy humor. Blockers, like most films produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, swings low between the humorous bits. Thankfully, Director Kay Cannon, writer of the Pitch Perfect films, infuses a jolt of girl power in her feature debut. The result is a feel good comedy relatable to all.

Leslie Mann stars as Lisa Decker, the divorced and doting single mother of Julie (Kathryn Newton). Unbeknown to Lisa, Julie and her two lifelong best friends, the athletic Kayla (Geraldine Viswanathan), and shy Samantha (Gideon Adlon), have made a pact to lose their virginity on prom night. The girls' sexual intentions are discovered accidentally on their way to the dance.

‘Game Over, Man!’ Review: The ‘Workaholics’ Team Reunites for a Drug-Addled Riff on ‘Die Hard’

The only convincing explanation for the existence of “Game Over, Man!” is that the brain trust behind Comedy Central’s “Workaholics” got really high on salvia one night and started to wonder what a remake of “Die Hard” might look like if it were written by Judd Apatow, directed by McG, and financed by whatever spare change they had in their pockets. How else to rationalize an action-comedy in which three burnout white dudes (suffering from some very severe bromantic tension) wind up going all “Pineapple Express” on the terrorists who raid the hotel where they work, take a handful of celebrity hostages, and amputate Daniel Stern’s dick? Stranger things have happened, especially on Netflix.

“Game Over, Man!” is exactly the kind of movie you would expect to get made when a massive streaming company grows so desperate for content they’ll green-light the first half-baked idea a trio
