Coming-of-Age for Parents Story

This movie was consistently funny, with some laugh out loud moments, and few lulls. As a mother to teenage girls, I can very much relate to how these parents feel about their daughters possibly sleeping with boys on prom night. They are terrified of their daughters having sex, but when they dig deeper they realize that their real fear, is letting their children go and make decisions for themselves. There are a few crude moments that I thought were gross, but my 37 year old boyfriend thought was hilarious, so I guess guy humor is covered too. Growing up with Adam Sandler and Chris Farley movies, I thought they were kind of funny too. Overall, I was very pleased with the pacing, humor and storyline of this movie. It’s hard to find comedies that can cover all these bases now a days.
