Very entertaining, touching high-school movie...
2 September 2011 | by FireWaveSee all my reviews

First of all, I don't see many reasons for this movie to be hated. It's really not that bad, at all. Movie shows to us some activities and problems that teenagers have at the end some of theirs' spots in life.

When we are talking about the acting, I can say that I was quite surprised how decent it was. Aimee Teegarden and McDonell did really good job with their roles. Their story was predictable ( like the whole movie in general), but it was nicely done. It was touching, softly and for someones heartbreaking. All of the characters were interesting, likable and pretty good to see them again in another scene. I have to admit, that it was rare movie with all likable characters in my case and opinion. Again, there were a lot of them, and because of that, we can't reach full character development, which is weak minus, but it happens with this movies.

Soundtrack of this movie is great. It perfectly matches with all of the scenes.

Cinematography was also great. All places in the movie were very beautiful and interesting.

Of course, just like I said, movie is predictable, sometimes corny and unrealistic, but that doesn't mean that it's bad. It's just there to add some charm. At the end of the day, it's just comedy about high- school.

Overall: With all of this, some positive energy reaches to your heart, while you're watching "Prom", at least in my case. You're not gonna be disappointed, unless you have high hopes. My final rating: 7.5/10
