At "Prom", every couple has a story and no two are exactly alike. For Nova Prescott (Aimee Teegarden), it's a classic tale of opposites attracting when she finds herself drawn to the guy (Thomas McDonell) who gets in the way of her perfect prom. Share the laughter and the drama as secrets are brought to light, seemingly steady relationships unravel and new romance catches fire. Get ready for this hilariously heartfelt date with destiny featuring a hot ensemble cast of rising young stars and cool bonus features. There are hundreds of nights in high school, but there's only one Prom.
Does anything pierce the hearts, hopes, and dreams of high schoolers like prom? It's not just a dance--it represents love, affirmation, a rite of passage, and the chance to get a really, really cute dress. And maybe the boy you've had a crush on since freshman year. Disney's Prom is a warm, affectionate look at a cast of characters (think High School Musical or Glee), about whom the audience slowly begins to care and root for. "Graduation is for the parents," one character solemnly pronounces, "but prom is really for us." The ensemble cast is believable and talented, and each young actor breaks out of his or her proscribed stereotype--the blond popular girl, Nova (Aimee Teegarden, also a standout in Scream 4), the broody dark-haired mystery guy, Jesse (Thomas McDonell--watch your back, Pattinson), and more. There are outcasts who earnestly believe in the magic of prom, and there are anointed ones who are jaded. But somehow they will all come together on this night to go through the wonderful, sometimes terrifying, sometimes shudderingly awful night known as prom. Standouts in the crowd include Mei (Yin Chang), who is obsessing over a secret, and Tyler (DeVaughn Nixon, incredibly handsome and confident on camera). Jared Kusnitz is Justin, a John Cusack-like Everykid who observes all the angst and anticipation leading up to the dance, and can't quite commit to whether he's part of the scene or not. Director Joe Nussbaum keeps all the intertwining stories moving along crisply, and guides his young actors with a light, engaging hand. Before you know it, it's prom night, and every viewer will have his or her heart on the line. Prom also features a great soundtrack, with fresh songs from the Weepies, the Shout Out Louds, and more. Dance on, kids. --A.T. Hurley

This movie wont appeal to many people over 30, but it speaks right to the teens..and that is normal. I am neutral on Disney....neither a huge fan, nor do I hate them for producing market-specific movies.
If you have early teen boys or girls I think they will like this movie. As a parent, I can watch it with my kids and not groan or be overly bored. It does highlight the energy of youth and the desire to fit in yet make a statement. Hopefully this review will help balance the previous reviews. I just don't think this is a horrrible, 2 star movie.
If you can get this for under $10 including shipping I think you won't be dissappointed.
The first twenty minutes seem to drag with a very Disney like perception of what's important to an eighteen year old. Oddly though I got sucked into this and really enjoyed it. The depiction of the final weeks at high school with no teenage debauchery makes for a very refreshing change, honestly it does! Unrealistic but a feel good movie.
You will find yourself caring about the characters and in the end feel like shouting "YES" as the jock/player teen gets his comeuppance.
A really nice feel good family movie from Disney I recommend it highly.
Without becoming obsessed with teen problems, the film manages to affirm the following profound themes:
(1) Young love
(2) The excitement, sense of opportunity, and uncertainty of growing up
(3) Social inequality
(3) Family-friend tension
(4) Duty and responsibility
I had a blast watching with my family. I think this is a perfect film for young people and adults, separately or together.
