BLOCKERS is a US comedy in which three concerned parents set out to stop their daughters from losing their virginities on Prom night.

Language

There is strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker') and milder terms including 'dick', 'pussy' and 'bitch'.

Theme

There is crude humour in a sequence in which a man is tricked into competing in an anal 'beer chugging' contest. It is implied that a tube is inserted into his anus and beer is poured into it, but there is no graphic detail.

Sex

Scenes of strong sex include a man thrusting into a woman from behind and a woman straddling a man. In another scene, it is implied that a teenage girl touches her date's penis under the covers and he prematurely ejaculates, but no strong detail is shown. There are also verbal references to oral and anal sex, ejaculation, lubricant, and losing one's virginity.

Nudity

There is brief sight of male genitalia as a blindfolded couple search for each other as part of a sex game. As the scene progresses a woman grabs a man's scrotum and is briefly shown squeezing it.

Drugs

Infrequent scenes of drug misuse include smoking hash oil and a man distributing cakes into which he has baked drugs. A teenage girl tries them and suffers comic side effects, but the work as a whole does not condone drug misuse.
