The idea of children become functioning adults is often a terrifying thought for parents, especially when their innocence is at stake. 'Blockers' explores the hilarious results of when a group of parents become hellbent on preserving their teens' virginities in the run up to their prom night.
It only seems like yesterday when Lisa (Leslie Mann), Mitchell (John Cena) and Hunter (Ike Barinholtz) waved goodbye to their young daughters on their first day of elementary school. Now, more than a decade later, those girls are still the best of friends - but everything else has sure changed.
Julie (Kathryn Newton), Kayla (Geraldine Viswanathan) and Sam (Gideon Adlon) are excited to celebrate a milestone in their teen lives: the high school prom. And just to make their parents' insecurities more profound, Julie carelessly leaves her laptop open for the grown-ups to find one day, where her and her friends' phone conversations are being stored.
Ellis is probably the most normal member of his weird family. His mother, Wendy, is a hippie who enjoys practising rituals of self-empowerment with a dubious boyfriend who lives in Tucson, Arizona. His father left him when he was young because of Wendy's eccentricities, leaving him to be raised by Goat Man; a long-haired, bearded botanist and goat tracker who has lived with him and his mother in their pool house for as long as he could remember. Ellis decides to attend the Gates Academy prep school on the East Coast that his father used to go to, devastating his mother who misses him dearly. He attempts to rebuild a relationship with his father who now has a beautiful girlfriend, a meticulous house and a baby on the way. Ellis is hurt that he was never informed about the imminent arrival of his half-brother but his dad takes the opportunity of seeing his son again to step up to being a proper father this time. Although Ellis settles into his new school well and meets a pretty girl from the area, he soon begins to realise how huge the gap between his life at home and his life on the East Coast really is.
