Ah, 80s nostalgia.
13 April 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A group of typical 80s teens worry about their prom on that very special night. Great fun for those of us who grew up in the 1980s. This film is exceptionally notable for its roster of future stars such as Christina Applegate, Alyssa Milano, Kelsey Grammer, Tracey Gold, etc.
