Not entirely bad -- it's a cute 'Prom', nothing spectacular.
14 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Disney's Prom is exactly as advertised -- good, clean, wholesome fun for the whole family. It's geared more towards High School juniors and seniors, but tweens should get a kick out of it as well. It's highly predictable and simply formulatic, but you don't go into a movie like this one expecting John Hughes-style film making. It is what it is and doesn't apologize for being paper thin, it relishes in it.

The movie follows a couple different couples and their journey to prom night. The class president, Nova (Teegarden), gives each of the prom helpers their free tickets to prom (and a plus one!) because they earned them by volunteering to help her. We get to see whom each person is taking via their wild and crazy prom proposals. Tyler (Nixon) asks out his long-standing girlfriend, Jordan (Bunbury), but he's obviously hiding something from her. I'll be honest, a lot of the faces are starting to look similar and I won't be able to match up their character names with their real names. So, an accident happens and all the prom decorations get destroyed and Nova has to work overtime to create them all again in order to get ready for prom -- the principal wants to punish a certain student named Jesse Richter (McDonell), so he forces him to help Nova or else he can't graduate. Another couple has communication issues -- he's excited about their future college life but she hasn't told him that she got accepted into another college that's way far away from his. Another storyline has two geeky best friends whose lives are about to be turned upside-down by one of them getting interested in a girl (Campbell). Another story has a guy who may or may not be lying about his prom date. And yet another story follows a guy as he tries desperately to find a date to the prom with the help of his little sister, with hilariously disastrous results.

As I said, I wasn't expecting John Hughes teenage angst because this is a Disney flick. Even knowing what was in store for me, it wound up not being too bad. Yes, it's highly cliché and I could tell you where the story was headed before I even hit the play button. It should be a very enjoyable watch for the entire family and it's not too stupid for the parents to get bored. There are some chuckles to be had (especially with the guy trying to find a date, his story line was the most enjoyable for me), so it's not a complete loss.

All of the actors and actresses involved did a good job. There's no award-winning performances in this picture, but at the same time no one does a horrible job, either. It maintains a nice even flow throughout the entire show and there wasn't a moment when I felt bored or wished it would just end already. At least no one broke into song about the prom and it didn't get too overly emotional and sappy either.

It's a nice movie with some pretty guys and gals and nothing in it is offensive or rude -- a perfect movie to sit down and enjoy with your young adults, tweens and early teenagers. Even though it's geared to the 16 and 17-year-olds, they might find it to be just a tad too corny or princess-y. All of the adults in the movie do take a backseat (and why not, it's not about them) -- but they do make them out to be pretty stupid, which is a shame because they made one of the fathers out to be a stereotype from the 50's and 60's by making him actually go to the boy and tell him to not date his daughter if he really loved her and wanted the best for her. Really? Time to update your thinking, Disney. I don't really think that happens that much these days.
