In spite of a little heavy-handedness with the film's message and some flying body fluids, 'Blockers' is fundamentally a sweet and understanding story about growing up, about the pitfalls of parenting and the hardships of letting your children make their own mistakes.
The movie is mocking a little the helicopter parenting that the protagonists are doing, but as it presents the adults in awkward and hilarious situations, it depicts their worries about their children and their sense of responsibility in a realistic way to which most of us can relate. The message is a bit clumsily conveyed as they try to cram down our throat several long dialogues about women's right to discover their own sexuality, the mistake of applying double standards, etc. ('We can be silly, gross and foul-mouthed too. It took the industry long enough to notice that.' Monica Castillo, The Guardian)

But the actors all give a very reliable performance, the teenagers are natural and convincing, and 'Blockers' is a positive (though sometimes a bit clumsy) film about being a parent and letting your kids start their adult life.
