This comedy tells the story of three girls attending their senior prom and preparing for life away from their parents.  Julie Decker, who is played by Kathryn Newton, has been best friends with Kayla (Geraldine Viswanathan) and Sam (Gideon Adlon) since they started kindergarten.

Julie is in love with her boyfriend and decides that she will lose her virginity on prom night and make it a very special night.  Her friends decide to do the same and make a sex pact. When their parents find out, they join together to stop them. Julie’s mom, Lisa, who is played by Leslie Mann,  Kayla’s dad, Mitchell, who is played by John Cena, and Sam’s dad, Hunter, who is played by Ike Barinholtz, will stop at nothing for their daughters.

I thought that this movie was very entertaining.  The story was really good and fitting for this time of year.  Leslie Mann, Ike Barinhotz, and John Cena were laugh-out-loud funny and had me laughing so hard, it brought tears to my eyes.  It’s not for anyone under 17, so it’s appropriately rated R.
