Prom - Movie Review

Many highschooler's look forward to prom as it's the one last party you will have with all your classmates before you graduate, but Disney's newest movie, Prom, makes it seem like it's the biggest event in your life EVER. Prom follows class president and the main organizer of prom, Nova (Aimee Teegarden) getting everything ready a few weeks before the big night. Everything is perfect - until a fire destroys all the prom decorations. Everyone is busy with final exams so the principal assigns Jesse (Thomas McDonell), the school's bad boy to help Nova rebuild everything. Jesse is everything that Nova isn't and the two butt heads at the beginning, but as they work together, Nova realizes Jesse isn't what he seems. Other subplots include classmates trying to find prom dates last minute, betrayals, and relationships and friendships being put to the test.

Typical to Disney fashion, there is a happy ending for everyone but I thought the movie was very unrealistic. Also a few of the lead characters had facial hair, and really, no boy in highschool has facial hair. Maybe find a younger cast, Disney? This movie is definitely aimed toward a younger audience, and pre-teens would probably enjoy Prom. Just make sure they don't get Prom crazy, because it's really not that big a deal.

Prom is in theatres everywhere tomorrow, Friday April 29th.
