Chloe Bennet shot this musical between seasons of her show Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013). See more »


"Promposals" are a contemporary tradition. It's highly unlikely that a boy in the early 80's would've asked his steady girlfriend to prom in such an elaborate way. He likely would have assumed she was going with him. See more »

User Reviews

I had high hopes for this!
12 May 2020 | by ddelaurentisSee all my reviews

As a fan of the original I went in to this with an open mind and I was really excited to see this in a musical format. Great music, fun clothes, 80s, should be a no brainer right?

Wrong! The idea itself is cute and fun and there are some cool dance scenes but the dialogue between the two leads is just terrible. There is no chemistry and the dude who plays Randy is just dull. I love Mae Whitman but she's just wasted here as Randy's BFF. I mean I'm not expecting Oscar performances but even high school musical or descendants has characters that are more interesting. It just kind of feels all over the place and doesn't know what kind of movie it wants to be. It bums me out bc this could have been really fun but it's lacking the heart that makes the orignal so great.
