It’s always concerning when an older person starts making an observation about “millennials”. This is a movie by a bunch of older people that’s mostly about young folk and it has a lot of that same sort of unfortunate cringe. Even the trailer centres on a teen conversation told entirely in emojis that nobody has ever had ever, but maybe some grandpa thinks is how these danged millennials communicate.

Blockers isn’t really about these girls losing their virginity. It’s about how they seize control of their destinies, one triumphantly lewd zinger at a time.

A film that reflects a much more contemporary, sex-positive experience - and one that lets everyone laugh, in grand gross-out humour fashion, at the same time.

Not in the Bridesmaids league but a very funny female-centric comedy with big laughs and spot-on attitudes.

Despite an element of gross bodily fluid-laden gags, Blockers manages to be heartfelt and endearing – even if the film’s message is sometimes heavy handed.

A movie which portrays sex either as worrying and disgusting, or as a rite of passage best approached in a sober, responsible way.

It plays to the strengths of its performers, from screen novices to the comic vet of the cast, Leslie Mann, who may never have had this good a showcase.

Blockers falls short of being modern comedy classic, but it’s still a good time.

As both teen comedy and mid-life crisis comedy it's terrific.
