Prom is about various teenagers in high school preparing for prom but with different multiple problems almost getting in the way of them having their perfect prom. My favorite character definitely had to be Lloyd played by Nicolas Braun because I felt that he had so much chemistry with his on-screen character; he was so funny and entertaining. My favorite part of the movie was when Lloyd put a huge poster on a bridge asking a girl to the prom but the sign gets ripped off by a huge truck driving underneath the bride. That definitely cracked me up. I found the movie very interesting. For example, the director did a good job with the whole story setting. I understood everything from beginning to end. In some parts, such as when they started playing the end credits, the music didn't really comply well with the scenes. This is important considering that in any movie, music plays such an important part and should always set the scene. I felt that the creators of "Prom" were trying to reach an older age. However, I don't imagine it would appear to anyone older than 14. More appropriately, the target age is 8-12. Overall, I give "Prom" 3.5 out of 5 stars. You should really watch it yourself though as you will find it enjoyable. Reviewed by Tatiane Chipondaminga, KIDS FIRST! Film Critics Boot Camp camper
This movie tells a sort of fairytale story about "Prom." For some kids, prom will be a milestone in their lives, marking the end of their life-as-they-knew it, in high school and before. It does a good job exploring different types of high schoolers, from the goodie two shoes kids to the slightly outside the box ones and explores the reasons why people behave the way they do. The actors are quite believable as are the sets - well, perhaps the prom decorations that burn down are a bit over the top. But, we are drawn into the lives of the key characters and rooting for everyone to find their own bliss. The appeal will most likely be to younger kids than those actually in high school - middle schoolers and younger.
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 one of high school's most seminal events. There are hundreds of nights in high school, but there's only one "Prom."
