Storyline

The graduating class at Miss Aversham and Miss Cronstall's School for Girls find that they have - in defiance of the natural laws of probability - all blossomed simultaneously. Capitalizing on their unique status, and intent on teaching high school boys to NEVER take girls for granted, they issue a challenge to the boys of Easthill's rival private schools, Selby and Lancaster. The winner in a series of designated competitions will be awarded exclusive rights to the girls as prom dates. Like the capricious and meddlesome gods of Greek mythology, the ACS girls pit the boys' schools against each other in a (secret) Prom War. Written by Myles Hainsworth

lifeless, inept teen comedy
31 May 2010 | by (behind you.) – See all my reviews

Sitting through Prom Wars, I felt like I was watching a bunch of rich high schoolers who hired someone to shoot and edit a movie they wrote. This is bad. All-teen casts can bring out some fine talent, but everyone here (I'll excuse Alia Shawkat) overacts like their lives depended on it. You'd think this was a Nickelodeon TV-movie except everyone swears for no reason and a Nickelodeon movie would have better production values. Also, you're making a stupid R-rated teen comedy, with no nudity? It's not like this thing could sink any lower, might as well throw something halfway dirty in there to give it some sort of energy.
