Blu-Ray Review: Disney’s Sugar-Coated ‘Prom’ Lacks Tangible Insight

5 September 2011 7:52 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – If your ideal vision of prom is best represented by “Carrie,” then odds are Disney’s “Prom” is not for you. In fact, if you are a high schooler, were a high schooler or may become a high schooler, “Prom” is guaranteed to strike you as monumentally childish. It’s the sort of harmless dreck so mediocre and generic that it could’ve been made in any time period. In a sense, it’s timeless dreck.

See if this sounds familiar: a perky popular overachiever finds herself falling for the long-haired brooding loser with a motorcycle and a criminal record. “He’s a rude, arrogant menace!” she shouts early in the film, thus solidifying that she will undoubtedly end up in his arms at the final fade-out. Seriously, how many “Breakfast Club” retreads and Disneyfied teenage dramas does the human race need?

Blu-Ray Rating: 2.0/5.0

Of course, the real inspiration »

Prom (Blu-ray / DVD Combo)

Blu-ray Review

Prom

Directed by:

Cast: Aimee Teagarden, Thomas McDonell, Danielle Campbell, DeVaughn Nixon, Nicholas Braun, Yin Chang

Running Time: 1 hr 47 mins

Rating: PG

Due Out: August 30, 2011

Plot: A group of high schoolers experience different emotional ups and downs as they prepare for their school’s prom.

Who’S It For?: Having never been to prom before would help in appreciating the “magic” of this movie. Even college freshmen would be able to see through Prom, and witness the amount of fairy dust sprinkled around the real elements of this one night event.

Movie:

The insecure teenagers of Prom don’t burst out into song whenever they are overcome by their emotions, but they probably should. The only difference between the general structure of Prom and that of movies like Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, or even Aladdin, is that this film works with a whole assortment of characters, each of »

Review: Prom

6 June 2011 4:32 AM, PDT | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

This is the Pure Movies review of Prom, by Suki Ferguson. Prom is directed by Joe Nussbaum and starring Aimee Teegarden, Thomas McDonell, DeVaughn Nixon, Danielle Campbell, Yin Chang, Jared Kusnitz, Nolan Sotillo, Cameron Monaghan and Kylie Bunbury. Back in the days of yore, when I was a pre-teen girl, I was supposed to be reading magazines like Mizz - wholesome, girlish publications about pastel-coloured hair clips and blue-eyed boyband members. In reality, my friends and I were reading Just17, which sometimes included raunchy advice about gauging your bra size and how to flirt with your extremely hypothetical date. Meanwhile, actual 17 year old girls were reading Cosmopolitan's sex technique tips, and putting them into practice. (Just who was actually reading Mizz, then? I have no idea.) My point is simply this: no tweenage girl wants to watch a film about being a tweenage girl. They know that sex will be »

Box Office Beatdown: Fast Five Drives Away with $83 Million

1 May 2011 12:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Weekend Box Office

Fast Five $83.6 millionRio $14.4 millionMadea's Big Happy Family $10 millionWater for Elephants $9.1 millionProm $5 millionHoodwinked Too! Hood Vs. Evil $4.1 millionSoul Surfer $4.1 millionInsidious $2.8 millionHop $2.2 millionScream 4 $2.1 million

It's been a boffo weekend for Fast Five. This big budget car sequel seems to have welcomed the summer blockbuster season into the box office. It managed to crank out a spectacular $83 million. Add in international takes and it's grossed $165 million. This is particularly impressive because this surprisingly well-reviewed crowd-pleaser has managed to top the previous entry in the series which made $71 million on opening weekend.

In other news, Rich Ross of Disney is no doubt tucking his tail between his legs after his first attempt at creating a new franchise bombed big time. Prom was an utter disaster. They had predicted a $9 million opening but instead the tween film debuted to a very disappointing $5 million. It seems this won't be getting the High School Musical »

Running Time: 1 hr 40 mins

Rating: PG

Release Date: April 29, 2011

Plot: A group of high schoolers experience different emotional ups and downs as they prepare for their school’s prom.

Who’S It For?: Having never been to prom before would help in appreciating the “magic” of this movie. Even college freshmen would be able to see through Prom, and witness the amount of fairy dust sprinkled around the real elements of this one night event.

Expectations: It’s hard to look past the word “Disney” when reading up about a movie called Prom, and equally difficult to restrain uncertainty about the film’s authenticity. How delusional would its visions of prom be? How terrible would the soundtrack be?

Friday Night Lights. Aimee Teegarden easily holds up this engaging teen romance centering on those frantic weeks leading up to . Senior Prom!

I don't know about you, but I'm a little bleary-eyed after getting up at 5:30 Am to watch the royal nuptials. Thusly, I'm not going to any movies tonight, but the rest of America probably isn't feeling quite so tired. So let's see what the Box Office Crystal Ball forecasts for our dear sweet film industry (America's royalty?) this weekend.

People are buzzing that today's take for Fast Five, the 4th sequel to The Fast and the Furious, could reach $30 million or so. Wow. I guess moviegoers are starved for some summer movie action after a few long weeks of animated movies dominating the top spot. If that information tracks, it looks like the film is poised to make at least $75 million over the weekend. »

Film Review: Aimee Teegarden Discovers ‘Prom’ Isn’t So Bad

29 April 2011 7:39 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – There are many essential questions in life. What is my purpose? How do I find my place in the universe? Where did I put my mobile phone? But the most important of all, as Aimee Teegarden is about to experience, is who will I get to take me to “Prom.”

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Prom, a new film produced by Walt Disney Pictures, is old school. It’s not set in another time, it is set within a former teen movie framework. In the tradition of director John Hughes, Prom portrays high school as a character challenge, with all the highs, lows, heartaches and the strange hope that a transition of life has been achieved.

Nova (Aimee Teegarden) is little Miss Perfect. She’s class president, scholarship student and of course, head of the Prom Committee. Her world is turned upside down when the meticulous decorations for the ‘Starry Night’ theme are »

Prom – The Review

29 April 2011 6:15 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Prom is pretty self explanatory. The film follows a group of teenagers from the same high school around the end of the year. Some are a little more excited about the big dance than others, and some are too young to go, but they still have to be surrounded by a school filled with prom-fever!

Of course, there needs to be some sort of a base, so the story mainly revolves around Nova Prescott (Aimee Teegarden), a goody two-shoes who has worked her tail off to get into Georgetown on a full scholarship. She is class president, a phenomenal student, and head of the prom committee. When a fire destroys all of the decorations that she and her committee worked so hard on, she is stuck rebuilding everything by herself… or so she thought. In a way to get back at a delinquent student, Principal Dunnan (Jere Burns) forces bad »

'Prom' Stars Suggest 'Elaborate' Ways To Get A Date For The Dance

29 April 2011 3:36 AM, PDT | MTV Movie News | See recent MTV Movie News news »

'I like it where people ask in a way where it's unique to that person you're asking,' Kylie Bunbury tells MTV News.

For those who are in high school, or maybe work at one, the release of Disney's sweet and wholesome "Prom" movie kicks off that heavily hyped season of dress shopping, date anxiety and general excitement that surrounds one of America's most storied traditions.

When MTV News caught up with the film's stars, we asked them to discuss the challenging task of asking someone to prom and what should be done in order to get a prospective date to say "yes."

"An elaborate way," Janelle Ortiz said. "I think it has to be an elaborate way, because you're going to remember prom for the rest of your life."

"It's got to be creative," Joe Adler added. "Throw some effort on it. »

Go to the 'Prom' Clips

28 April 2011 3:00 PM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

When it comes to high school movies, there tends to be sizable amounts of awkward romantic drama, non-stop malicious he-said-she-said gossip and practical prankster hijinks that culminate in full fervor at the penultimate teenage event: the prom.

So it makes perfect sense why Disney would cut right to the heart of things and make a movie called, well, "Prom."

The new flick unfolds the saga of several teenagers as they deal with the pressures of the upcoming dance: whether it be overachiever Nova (Aimee Teegarden) trying to transform tough rebel Jesse (Thomas McDonell) into the perfect date, or others dealing with tight romantic entanglements and brooding bullies, everyone has their own Prom-iscous story to tell.

Before you set your "Prom" date, check out five clips from the movie.

Top 10 Most Memorable High School Movie Nerds

28 April 2011 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Best and Worst, Moviefone Canada, The Rundown

This week marks the release of Disney's 'Prom,' just in time for -- you guessed it -- prom season. It's hard to resist a solid high school movie, and this one appears to have all of the classic elements: a brooding bad boy (Thomas McDonell), a pretty blonde overachiever (Aimee Teegarden), a beautiful prom queen (Kylie Bunbury), a popular jock (De'Vaughn Nixon) and, of course, a nerdy nice guy (Nicholas Braun).

No high school movie would be complete without a nerdy nice guy (not to be confused with abrasive geeks, like Napoleon Dynamite or 'Rushmore''s Max Fischer). After all, lovable dorks have become some of the most memorable characters in high school movie history.

It's hard to pinpoint why nerdy nice guys have become such an enduring high school movie fixture. Maybe it's because they're so relatable. Maybe it's »

New this Week: ‘Fast Five’ and ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (Bd)’

27 April 2011 7:00 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Hitting movie theaters this weekend:

Dylan Dog: Dead of NightBrandon Routh, Anita Briem, Sam Huntington

Fast FiveVin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson

Hoodwinked Too: Hood Vs. Evil – Hayden Panettiere, Glenn Close, Patrick Warburton

PromAimee Teegarden, Thomas McDonell, DeVaughn Nixon

Movie of the Week

Fast Five

The Stars: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson

The Plot: Dominic (Diesel) and his crew find themselves on the wrong side of the law once again.

The Buzz: In theory, this film should be awful — how many franchises can boast a good fifth installment? (Harry Potter and Star Wars notwithstanding.) But in practice, based on its entirely amped-up (kick ass!) trailer, I’ve got a good feeling that Fast Five will clean up at the box office this weekend.

The franchise has consistently provided its fans with heroic leads, amazing autos, sexy party girls, great music and loads of adrenaline-soaked action sequences, »
