At "Prom," every couple has a story and no two are exactly alike. Several intersecting stories unfold at one high school as the big dance approaches; "Prom" portrays the precarious passage from high school to independence as some relationships unravel and others ignite. For Nova Prescott (Aimee Teegarden), it's a battle of wills as she finds herself drawn to the guy (Thomas McDonell) who gets in the way of her perfect prom. Fellow seniors Mei (Yin Chang) and Tyler (De'Vaughn Nixon) harbor secrets, while others face all the insecurity and anticipation that surrounds… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Occasionally, it's mildly amusing but the conclusions are so soft it hurts."
‑ Anna Smith, Time Out
"They're a ridiculously cute pair and ridiculously at odds over this whole prom thingy, which is, by its very nature, ridiculous. So the ridiculous quotient is extremely high."
‑ Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle
"A watchable and satisfying family film."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"...a perfectly watchable - albeit utterly forgettable - little drama..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Pretty much a non-starter...its squeaky-cleanliness will seem more at home in its inevitable cable afterlife on the Disney channel. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"Except for a couple of nice touches, "Prom" is a remedial class in cliches."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"Never have the stakes seemed so low for everyone involved. This is a sterile high school environment, lacking anything nearing controversy."
‑ Laremy Legel,
"When I was in high school, I would have pretended like this movie was beneath me, that it's just about stupid prom. That's sort of what high school is about too. But I secretly would have loved it."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"There's one hell of a drinking game to be made for every utterance of title word."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"[At least] it doesn't get mired in the '80s nostalgia that's come to infect today's teen comedies..."
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
"Prom is a good-hearted, perfectly watchable bonbon about adolescents with little on their minds besides who will ask or be asked to the graduation night shindig."
‑ Ella Taylor, NPR
"Less engrossing than a Clearasil commercial and more synthetic than a Rebecca Black video."
‑ Nell Minow, Chicago Sun-Times
"Wholesome story, colorful characters and sweet romantic elements, make for a decent watch."
‑ Amy Curtis, We Got This Covered
"If Disney missed the bulls-eye this time, they still hit the target (audience)."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"teen drama that may be feel-good, but lets itself down by merely going through the motions."
‑ James Luxford, The National
