‘Blockers’ Review: A Hilarious, Heartfelt Teen Sex Comedy For Girls
For decades the coming-of-age sex comedy has belonged to the guys: Raunchy, horned-up teen boys desperate to lose their V-cards during one crazy night before heading off to college. Though recent years have given rise to more honest and unflinching coming-of-age stories about teen girls (see: Edge of Seventeen, Lady Bird), women haven’t really been served with the same sex-crazed high school comedies. (Maybe because our needs are more complex than those of the budding patriarchy?) But Blockers finally gives young women the teen sex comedy they deserve — one that’s insanely goofy and hilarious without sacrificing its emotional core.
