Sex is the focus of this battle, but the big favorite is Rami Malek’s Oscar performance as Freddie Mercury. Does he live up to his role as a favorite?
The three childhood friends Julie, Kayla and Sam make a pact: They want to lose their virginity on prom night. But who has a big problem with that? The overly cautious trio of Julie’s hip single mother Lisa, Kayla’s father, who is constantly vacillating between anger and tears, and Sam’s divorced, often nasty father, Hunter. Will the three chaos thwart their offspring’s plan? Odds meter drew the following conclusion in his cinema review: “Between crude gags below the belt and punchlines that fizzled out in the air,” The Sex Pact “hides a charming story about parents and their children approaching each other. Most convincing, however, is the interaction of the actors, who obviously had fun.

Third place went to the Sat.1 film with Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton, who had to be content with 16 points. Even with all points awarded, it would not have been enough to achieve more than bronze, which is why silver goes to “The Sex Pact”. The new broadcast of “Bohemian Rhapsody” on ProSieben is the winner and therefore lives up to its role as a favorite. Will the Oscar-winning film succeed in winning the ratings?
