  • Summary: At "Prom," every couple has a story and no two are exactly alike. Several intersecting stories unfold at one high school as the big dance approaches; "Prom" portrays the precarious passage from high school to independence as some relationships unravel and others ignite. For Nova Prescott, it's a battle of wills as she finds herself drawn to the guy who gets in the way of her perfect prom. Fellow seniors Mei and Tyler harbor secrets, while others face all the insecurity and anticipation that surrounds one of high school's most seminal events. There are hundreds of nights in high school, but there's only one "Prom." (Walt Disney Pictures)

    There are new tweeners every year. To them, the characters and plot devices in this perfectly competent film might well seem fresh.

    A predictable but painless pastiche of high school drama clichés that will give its intended tween audience a lot to squeal about -- and leave their parents reminiscing quietly about how good films from '80s icon John Hughes were.

    Katie Wech's script is a carousel of reassuringly familiar plot lines, kept smoothly revolving.

    More interestingly, it's also kind of sweet in a contrived and fumbling first-kiss sort of way.

    Disney's Prom is to real high school what "High School Musical" was to "West Side Story" – all fluff, no edge.

    These are boys and girls on their very best behavior, which doesn't sound like any prom you or I remember.

    The film itself is horrible garbage its like a full length film on Secret Life. It's lame and cliche with the dullest of dull acting. The only people that will relate to this film are people planning on going to prom within the few weeks after watching this film. However, Aimee Teegarden's performance shined brightly allowing the rest of us to somewhat enjoy the film. Her performance was so good that I would say this film gets a 2 without her but gains 5 points based strictly off her performance. Its enjoyable if you force yourself to enjoy it, as I did. Expand

    All the cornyness aside, this turns out to be a decent movie about prom. Despite so many different characters they all seem to get enough screen time.

    An ordinary Teen Romance ! Nothing to tell about the story , even a 5 years old can tell wats gonna happen . Nothing was amazing or awesome . But But But it was not boring . anyone can get through with it . Teegarden & McDonell;s chemistry was good .Campbell was so cute but her character was not good . she should have a better part . No comment on Directing but if the story was more wide it would be a nice Teen-com , Expand

    Garbage absolute garbage. The camera man was never able to keep the camera in the same place. The only thing worse is the story. Unless you are a 13 year old girl avoid this movie like the sin that it is. Expand
