Parents always want to protect their kids from anything and everything under the sun and it’s quite understandable, because they want to keep them secure. Reasonable. But what happens when this love triggers their overprotective instincts and they set out to control their kids’ lives? We guess John Cena, Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz might be in a better position to answer this, since that’s exactly what they will be doing in the upcoming comedy movie ‘Blockers’.

Since time immemorial, Hollywood has been making big bucks by stressing on the importance of prom night in teenagers’ lives and how their parents freak out, imagining their kids losing their virginity one fine day (or should we say night). So what makes this one special that the rest? The mighty John Cena as an overprotective dad, who even dares to chug beer through his (I can’t even) butt for his daughter? Of course! But this isn’t the only ‘special’ element. The movie smartly plays around the concept of using emojis for conveying sexual messages – you know just millennial things – and how poor parents are trying hard to decode those sex emojis.

The premise of the movie is slightly cliché; a trio of parents who have seen their daughters grow up together, stumble upon a group chat where the daughters are busy chatting through emojis. Turns out, the three have signed a ‘sex pact’ where they will lose their virginity on their prom night. Well, definitely the shock was bigger than walking in on kids masturbating. So the parents decided to ruin the prom night for their kids and go to extreme lengths to stop them from having sex. We wonder if the thought of teaching their kids to have safe sex ever crossed their minds, it could have been a less painful option, especially for John Cena. 


While Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz share a great comic timing, professional wrestler John Cena managed to tickle our funny bones as well with his hilarious antics. ‘Pitch Perfect’ writer Kay Cannon wears the Director’s hat for this film which stars Kathryn Newton, Geraldine Viswanathan, and Gideon Adlan as the beautiful daughters. The coming-of-age comedy movie is expected to release on April 6, 2018.

But, why is Shaq sitting in a car alone and cracking jokes?

With so many puns, and so many dad jokes, this Carpool Karaoke episode featuring John Cena and Shaquille O’Neal could not have been any better.

Black Hercules. The Big Aristotle. Extra Tall-ems. Empire Strikes Shaq. Those were just some nicknames that WWE wrestler and actor John Cena gives his carpool buddy and basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal within the first thirty seconds of an advance clip of ‘Carpool Karaoke: The Series’.

And that was enough to start the name pun game. Seems like Cena did have a few clearly pre-prepared punny nicknames for Shaq. Obviously, Shaq was also able to fire back with a few of his own Dad jokes like, “You’ve been served a sub-Cena.”

Even though the episode is not that heavy on music, with Cena readily admitting that he isn’t much of a singer, which prompts Shaq to tell him he’s no ‘Cena Turner’.

“The general perception was that you weren’t really that good at the free throw line,” Cena muses at one point.

“Fifty percent. That’s make one, miss one. My motto is, I hit ’em when I need to hit ’em,” Shaq shrugs.

Even though this teaser for the episode is just about two minutes long, you have to admit it’s pretty damn entertaining.

Watch for yourself and see if you can actually spot John Cena, because we sure as hell cant :
