While Danny's father and mother independently search for love, Danny is on his own desperate quest to find a prom date. Danny's search becomes progressively more pathetic once he and his family learn that Bart, the school's biggest dweeb, not only secured a date for the prom, but got a hotel room as well.

Storyline

Danny Stein is a high-school senior and class vice president; he's in charge of the prom, along with Camille, his best friend for years. Everyone including Camille and her parents assumes that Danny will ask her to the prom, but he wants something less platonic and more romantic - more memorable. His choices include the sophomore cheerleader he drives to school, a friend of a friend, and a quiet Chinese girl in his classes. With his parents' help (they're going through a divorce), he gets the tickets, rents a tux, reserves a limo, and, over his mother's objections, gets a room at the prom-site hotel. This, everyone believes, is the way to establish memories. Will anything work out? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Underrated teen comedy
23 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those small comedy gems that has a very cool and unique style to it...and is just an overall funny movie -- about this family of losers who are all looking for dates. I laughed throughout the movie...and I was also surprised to be moved by the relationships as well. It's played pretty real for a teen comedy and I was very surprised by that. The movie shows a pathetic side of Miami Beach and it's a unique environment (with old people everywhere) for a movie about a teenager looking for a prom date. It's an interesting twist on the genre -- and I think it works in a very clever and unique way. The music is also very unique for this type of movie. The movie starts out with the protagonist playing the trumpet in his high school jazz band at the beach to a bunch of old people and it sets this fun, quirky tone for the rest of the movie. I also really liked the overall look of the film -- there were a lot of bright colors and the locations looked like places I haven't seen before. It didn't feel generic. The cast in particular is top notch. William H. Macy is freaking' hilarious as the teen's dad and the supporting cast is also very funny. Macy can do no wrong in my mind. Jennifer Tilly was funny and I was surprised to see her. I think the main kid is a great actor and I think he's going places. When we finally meet Bart, it's definitely worth the wait. I saw this movie in NY and the audience really responded to it. I told everyone I know to see it but it came and went in limited release. I am surprised there wasn't more hype around this film. I would definitely recommend this movie.
