Trivia

This film was produced by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, who were creative forces behind Superbad (2007). "Superbad" is a film about three high-school friends who try to have sex before graduation. A very similar story to "Blockers," except "Superbad" features male protagonists rather than female. See more »

Goofs

When the parents chased the Lincoln Town Car limo, the scene shows the driver turn the volume up. However, that audio system belongs to a Chevrolet vehicle. See more »

Quotes

Kayla: This is not a big deal. They're teenage girls. They have sex. Do you, like, freak out when you see a bee fucking a flower?

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.

User Reviews

 
Is it just me or does this film seem grotesquely overrated?
10 April 2018 | by jackwarchibaldSee all my reviews

Blockers is a film that I personally looking forward to a bunch. The trailers completely sold me on this idea of a hard R, raunchy comedy that was original, heartfelt, and delivered some dang good laughs too!

Unfortunately, all the stuff you heard that was funny in the trailer is either not funny because you've heard it all before or it's cut out of the movie entirely.

So don't see Blockers. It's a painfully unfunny crude-fest that delivers crap humor, no emotion, disney-channel acting, and a worthless story. The only good things about it are the three daughters and one of their dates.

Giving this one a generous C- or on Imdb, a 5/10
