Three overprotective parents, having learned of their teenage daughters' plan to lose their virginity on prom night, set out to find the girls and stop them. Seth Rogen produced this rowdy comedy, which feels like one of his starring vehicles in its mix of sentimentality and gross-out humor. What's different is the emphasis on female sexuality, with surprisingly serious conversation about the agency and desires of young women. John Cena, playing against his tough-guy persona, steals the show as the most sensitive parent (in one of the better running gags, his character is secretly a crybaby), though fellow grown-ups Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz score numerous laughs as well. Kay Cannon directed.
