In desperate need of a noble cause to revive their public images and bounce back, self-centred Broadway thespians, Dee Dee Allen and Barry Glickman, the narcissistic stars of Eleanor, The Eleanor Roosevelt Story, have come up with a foolproof plan to earn some positive publicity. As a result, to help Emma, a bright-eyed high-school student who has recently come out of the closet, make her dream come true, the flamboyant celebrity activists and their fellow struggling actors, Angie Dickinson and Trent Oliver, head to the small town of Edgewater, Indiana, to right a wrong. But, Emma only wants to take her girlfriend to the prom, and intolerance stands in the way of acceptance and happiness. Can the bold quartet give Emma the prom she deserves?Written by

I truly can't understand the people who rated this 1, I mean come on people its really worth more than that! You gotta take this movie for what it is, sure its not the greatest movie of all time but its a heartfelt feelgood movie who just makes you happy. Instead of scoffing James Cordon for his accent laugh with him for it. Its just like Stellan Skarsgårds singing in mamma mia, yet another fun adding to the prom.
Go see this film if you wanna have a good time and escape from reality!
Ps: I have to mention the catchy songs! They have been occupying my mind ever since a saw this.
