This has been promoted as the first teens-get-laid flick with the female characters in control. That’s true, but it’s less about the girls and more about their parents (John Cena, Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz). When they discover that their daughters have made a pact to lose their virginity on prom nite, they chase around trying to block them. There are a few funny moments (mostly thanks to Cena), but the script is much more focused on an empowerment message (there’s even a blatant song to that effect). First time director (and writer of the Pitch Perfect trio) Kay Cannon has managed to squeeze some fun out of the film, but it never reaches the zaniness, hilarity or outrageousness that we’ve come to expect from this genre.

 

2.5 out of 5 stars (2.5 / 5)
