Trivia

When Mitchell, John Cena's character, sneaks into Marcie & Ron's house whilst they are playing blindfolded, the sfx & water rings in the glass when Ron approaches Mitchell's hiding place are a clear nod to Jurassic Park (1993). See more »

Alternate Versions

In Singapore, the film was originally passed with an R21 classification due to the film's sexual content and nudity. However the distributors were unsatisfied with this rating and opted to re-edit the film in order to obtain the more commercially lucrative M18 rating; the aforementioned cut removes a brief, close-up depiction of a hand squeezing a man's scrotum, as part of a couple's act of foreplay.

Parents-burglars vs. first sex of their children
5 June 2018 | by BiiivALSee all my reviews

A comedy with a rather interesting title "There Will not Be Sex !!!" was released in our country at a time when most pupils finish school and prepare for graduation balls. Perhaps this was the right decision, and although the film has already collected a good cash register, it seems that it could have been more, it would have come out in May. But what has already been done can not be corrected, therefore we will look at what is already available. A very carbon monster turned out to be enough for me to watch this movie.

In fact, this is another story of the relationship between parents and their children, in this case daughters. Only this time, attention is focused on a very piquant topic - before the prom night, adult males are already deciding to end virginity and, at all costs, start their first sex in their lives. And it all started with the fact that one of them, going to a party, just forgot to close her laptop, and unsuspecting parents "accidentally" saw the correspondence of the heroines. And then it raced ... They begin to chase their daughters, so as not to let them carry out their plans. The catch is that it is difficult for any one of them to blame something, because each parent has his own problems. The first is excessively caring, the second is a single mother, the third is divorced. They do not yet fully realize that children have grown up, and are not ready to let them go free swimming. Daughters also do not have everything smoothly: they suffer from too much attention of parents, in addition, one of them understands that in the so-called "sex pact" she is purely formal, and so far she can not decide with whom she wants to build relationships.

Each actor turned out to be a special character, and they coped very well. Leslie Mann embodied the ideal single mother, John Sina - a sport-obsessed but very emotional person, Hayk Barinholtz - the most clockwork and one of the most soberly assessing the situation of the parents. Actresses who played maturing daughters, also performed well: they did not overplay and did not play bad.

For the most part, the jokes sounded and shown in the film were vulgar and even too vulgar, but periodically they were diluted with a rather witty humor. A very pleasant addition was the extremely funny scene after the beginning of the credits.

"There will not be sex !!!" - this is a classic American comedy of the category "18+", at the proper level raising the issue of growing up and sexual becoming a person. Will go to view.
