I love my Canadian movies but lately????? Not so much. This one barely got the 3 stars, more like 2.4. It is a shame, too because the young cast is pretty good and the premise is not bad either. 1 girls school and 2 boys schools and the girls want to have the pick of the litter for Prom. They start a game where the 2 boys schools compete in various games of intellect and sports? This must be done in secret, not faculty can know. For a comedy, it wasn't too funny, I maybe laughed 2 or 3 times. is it worth watching? I won't recommend it. It tries to be a cross between "Revenge of the Nerds" and "Animal House" and doesn't succeed at either one.

Prom Wars is a decent teen-themed movie, although the target audience is hard to figure out. On one hand, it's a very light-hearted film that seems to cater to tween Nickelodeon fans. On the other hand, it's a rated-R film with occasional swearing and a few mild sexual references. So while it's not as explicit as American Pie, it's unusually R-rated when it very easily could have been PG-13 without the swearing. Quick note to parents: there's no nudity, just a couple scenes of actors and actresses in their undies.

The senior class of an all-girls private school challenges two boys school rivals to compete with one another, the winner earning the right to take the girls to prom. Unfortunately the writing isn't that funny, even for a bubbly teen film.

What makes Prom Wars watchable is that it has a solid cast of college-aged actors, all with a good deal of TV and film experience. The most interesting casting is the talented and gorgeous Alia Shawkat, who did a great job in "Bart Got a Room" and "Amreeka." Other notables include the lovely Keenan MacWilliam of "Saddle Club" fame, and hip Ricky Ullman. Most of the experienced supporting cast are Canadian, which reflects the Montréal shooting location.

The movie was shot well, has a decent production value, and a catchy pop-rock soundtrack. My only real complaint is that there weren't enough funny scenes that stood out. Since the film earned an R-rating for language, they should have gone all-out like American Pie or Superbad. Instead the film keeps things very light, but with few laugh-out-loud moments. The movie is still worth checking out, watch it once before you decide whether to buy the DVD.

It's refreshing to see a movie this funny and mature without being over-the-top offensive. Prom Wars is rated R for a bit of language and sexual references, all of which are only implied, so while it calls for an older-teen audience it shows nothing more than you'd see at a beach or on basic television.

The lead cast fill their roles beautifully, and the story and soundtrack are catching. Alia Shawkat is as lovely and clever as you've seen her in Arrested Development, and Raviv Ullman is still a brilliant and underrated actor. His subtle expressions and lack of shame in being a complete lunatic shine in this film, and they both play complex characters with acting skills beyond their age. The background personalities light up the screen as well, and the final battle (and ending twist) make this one of my favorite movies. I hope this rich movie makes your day as much as it has mine.
