Among that incredible number of Comedy films that come out every year, albeit with smaller, but an impressive number of paintings that get big screen, very few that surprising, are worthy of attention. Let's call a spade a spade — we go to movie this kind of Comedy, aware of the their content and the absence of meaning. ‘Blockers’ is really the story of three graduates of American schools who are concerned about the loss of innocence in the prom night. But the vulgar jokes below the belt sometimes is a trio of cute girls and the second Trinity contrast different parents. The characters are more than‘on time’, by whose eyes the story is told, and provide an hour and a half quite a good mood.

Although obviously the prerogative of the eldest of the Trinity of the characters, their young children of not just take up screen time. Julie, Samantha and Kyle, despite his high-sounding plans about sex is a Covenant, not like slutty high school girls. Each of the heroines came in its own cute, that surprising for such a Comedy. Not that I wanted to see a solo film about each of girls, but in the frame they look quite harmonious and really like childhood friends. Problems of a growing seventeen year old teenagers take on new forms, according to as before sunrise after prom is less time. The irony on the modern world SOC. networks and messengers, pop culture and a generational change played out in complete with the first scenes.

If three girls are driven by the natural processes of growing up and the solution of urgent problems of graduation, their parents are overcome with fear. Fear for the innocence of the daughters, in this case, becomes nothing but an emotional smokescreen. Mitch, Lisa and hunter, each in its own way, afraid of change. Still do they fear of their life will always go past the heavy burden of loneliness will press all the stronger. Three absolutely different characters of the most of irony have on the character of John Senna. Inflated good-natured dad in shorts plaid shirt provides the major part of the humor in  the"adult" storyline. Night quest in search of their children turns an adventure. For the time I rolled the success to go to film movie twice, well after spending time.

Can movie three exclamation points and the word "sex" in the title be good? Sometimes it seems that our localizers intentionally trying to make the name of the imported movie as possible unattractive. Apparently obey the orders of the Ministry of culture on the promotion of domestic films in reducing the screening of foreign. However, the original "Blockers" (the blockers? killjoys?) more less digestible. Perhaps it speaks something English-speaking audience (judging by the cock in the credits), but in Russia it is necessary for a more adequate translation. I must say that this time localizers not wrong with degree of vulgarity of the name.

Sex — this thing is permitted, as alcohol, children after the N-fifteenth year. It from the point of view of parents. With the point of view of children, prom school — is a time when virginity must be destroyed. And not going on love other feelings not relevant to primary sexual characteristics. Physiology, nothing more.

Some time ago a pioneer of physiological movies on the deprivation of virginity to the prom was the "American pie" (American Pie, 1999). He has acquired a bunch of sequels and imitations, the protagonists of which were adolescent males. In our feminist time teenage girls want equal with the boys right. And therefore, we are talking about the defilement of three girls-girlfriends to their school prom.

Parents, of course, shock going to resist this act by all available (and not much) means. The older generation represented by the great Comedy actress Leslie Mann ("the Other woman", 2014, "Big daddy", 1999), a well-known comedian Hayk Barinholtz ("Neighbors on the warpath", 2014, "the mindy Project", 2012-17) and ex-wrestler John Cena ("12 rounds", 2009, "the Wall", 2017). Blue don't seem to give rest to the laurels of Dwayne the Rock Johnson and it out all forces making faces in trying to make his appearance a little more funny. It turns out badly. Have Barenholz out a little better, thanks to years of training the relevant muscles of the face. Leslie Mann is the only one of the Trinity is not going bananas and plays a real role. It a single mother obsessed with the desire to give her daughter a perfect life and perfect family, with it terrified that after moving daughter in College Dorm all her efforts will be in vain. Parents met and became friends when my daughter was small, helpless and adorable bunnies. With long time passed, and the parents suddenly realized that not understand what they talking about the Internet.

This is an absolutely stupid movie, without the slightest hint of any thoughts. Parents are always more conservative in matters of sex than children. Time flies too quickly, old men not have time, young people are not want to spend time to understand those who their view and the sex was, is and always will be. Puberty — this is the time when the brain is fixated on genitals and physiologically related with them, systems of excretion of waste products. The older generation in trying to understand their children indulges in all serious, on the case voicing their teenage sexual nightmares. It looks stupid, vulgar and disgusting. But removed all very lively and fun. At this, the authors managed to bring a touch of nostalgia for the that crazy time when the word "ass" stirred not less than "College".

For both generations the school prom is the period of parting with childhood and childish ideas about life. Some people think that on — emptiness. Someone — new, real life. The film is directed by Kay cannon combines the film is very emotional issues related to the possible loss of their child in its growing up with physiologically repulsive jokes. These two tone is so dramatically different, that at least puzzling. It seems that the writers took two different movies, and as a result, decided to save money and to remove one. Sexy jokes here, and overall the film looks very peppy and energetic. And it fully justifies the rating of 18+. At this is strange that a filmed woman. Usually women Directors not associated with sex comedies. But, it seems that women look at the emotional content typically male content has made it more or less watchable. In all the rest is standard American vulgar Comedy with vomit, farting and naked member.

Comedies on the theme of teen, graduation, school, College their fathers and mothers have been removed already a very large number. Is Comedy a good level, there's low Comedy with bad jokes and debauchery.

The film "Sex is not be" also refers to the above type films, but unlike other typical vulgar Comedy, in this film contains the meaning that must be understood by all school-aged adolescents in especially when touched on the themes of sex and loss of virginity. Very interesting also to observe the two fathers (one of them performance John Sina) embarrassing trying to explain to his daughters how important sex for the first time in life and the loss of virginity, and just the same character John Sina was the most interesting and memorable. Also in the film shows the relationship of parents and their children, parents fear for their children, that the first sexual experience can be for their children sad, and children on the contrary excited by the event and trying to plan.

"Sex Is" — on the one hand typical American Comedy about Teens parents with elements of the vulgar jokes, the vulgarity, but in this film has a good meaning, a good adult cast and large share of laughter.
