Silly but Fun!
6 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, this movie was made for network television so it's quite censored for the audience anyway. This movie was made as a prom movie starring television child stars like Alyssa Milano as the cool, popular girl who ends up in a movie theater on her prom night. Tracey Gold plays the unpopular girl who gets asked out by the popular boy for prom night. Her parents are played by Kelsey Grammar and Edie McClurg. Back in the day, it was quite normal for network stars to work on television movies like this. Christina Applegate and Matthew Perry play a young couple who push too hard. Her parents are played by Mary Frann. Alan Thicke plays the father of a nerd boy who would rather be watching the stars. He manages to get together with Milano's character. While it was a sweet film, I wished that it was shown more or available. They don't make television movies or comedic movies like they used too.
