Blockers: What Made This Comedy So Appealing?

Blockers was one of the funniest movies I’ve seen in years. If you’re a fan of comedies, you’ll need to run to your nearest theater to see this. With that being said, what are my main takeaways from Blockers?

John Cena

Who knew that Cena was a comedic actor? If you’re a fan of WWE, you’ll know that Cena does have a rather witty side to him. His performance in Blockers showcased his acting chops. While he’s no Dwayne Johnson (yet), Cena has a good chance at succeeding in Hollywood.

It’s safe to say you won’t look at Cena the same way again after this film. If you’ve seen the trailer for Blockers, you’ll know about the butt chug scene. However, let’s just say it’s a lot funnier in the actual film. Cena’s going to get a laugh out of you on that particular scene and many others.

Kay Cannon

Making her feature film directing debut, Cannon excelled with Blockers. An established writer/producer, directing is definitely something for her to continue. Therefore, it’s rewarding for a new director to come out and succeed with their first feature film. Whether it be the cast, script, or comedic moments, Cannon hit everything with Blockers. So, judging by this film, she’ll be around for quite some time.


The plot to Blockers is quite original. Three parents set out to prevent their kids from having sex on prom night. It’s a great premise, one that sets itself apart from other films. This is just another feather in the cap of Cannon.

Blockers is one of the funniest films in years. A lot of the humor is a tad raunchy, but, given the films R rating, it works. There is numerous laugh out loud scenes in Blockers. As mentioned before, the butt chug scene is rather entertaining. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, though. If you don’t get at least three big laughing attacks, you’re just wrong.

As you can see Blockers has a lot going for it. Indeed, the film lives up to the hype. Cannon made a statement in her directing debut. This will be a movie that is watched for years to come. You’ve got John Cena with a great performance, and a lot of laughs. Hence, this is one that you won’t forget.
