QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: Three parents try to stop their daughters from losing their virginities on Prom Night.
PLOT:
Julie (KATHRYN NEWTON), Kayla (GERALDINE VISWANATHAN), and Sam (GIDEON ADLON) have been best friends since kindergarten, and now it's their Prom Night. On that special evening, the trio makes a pact to lose their virginities to their prom dates. Julie has been dating the nice, good-looking Austin (GRAHAM PHILLIPS) for six months and feels it's time. Kayla just wants to cut loose with Connor (MILES ROBBINS), the school's free-spirited drug dealer. Sam, meanwhile, wants to just "get it over with" and decides to sleep with her date, nerdy Chad (JIMMY BELLINGER), even though she is a closet lesbian who has yet to come out to any family or friends and is in love with out-and-proud classmate Angelica (RAMONA YOUNG).

But when Julie's mother, Lisa (LESLIE MANN), gets wind of the girls' Prom Night agreement, she springs into action. She recruits Kayla's muscle-head, but extremely emotional dad, Mitchell (JOHN CENA), to track them throughout the night and try and stop the big moments from happening. Along for the ride is Hunter (IKE BARINHOLTZ), Sam's estranged dad who divorced her mother years earlier after cheating on her. He's blown back into town having paid for a limo and initially has no problem with his daughter being part of the pact because he's the only one who suspects nothing will happen on account of her sexuality. He tries to stop Lisa and Mitchell, and the result definitely has comic effects.

Throughout the night, the three adults and teens come in contact with a host of quirky personalities. They range from a very determined limo driver named Rudy (COLTON DUNN) to Austin's sexually adventurous parents (GARY COLE and GINA GERSHON).

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Teens may be attracted to the raunchy R rating and half the main cast being high-school age.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For crude and sexual content, language throughout, drug content, teen partying, and some graphic nudity.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
