Prom (U)

Comedy, Drama

A group of teenagers get ready for their high school prom.

The critical consensus

Anxious teenagers might be drawn to the bright, shiny packaging and the attractive-if-somewhat-overage cast, but this is hardly worth renting a tux for.

Aimee Teegarden and Thomas McDonnell have appropriately U-cert chemistry, but this is no Pretty in Pink.

**(*)(*)(*)Kate Stables, Total Film, 01/06/2011

Not knowing enough for the Glee/Easy A generation and laden with enough Prom-movie clichés to have older viewing running for the exits, it's old hat. Still, the songs will bring a smile to all but the grumpiest face.

**(*)(*)(*)James White, Empire Online, 30/05/2011

Katie Wech’s script is smarter than your average tweenie fare, the youngsters are an attractive bunch in a Glee kind of way, and it’s all good, clean harmless fun.

**(*)(*)(*)Alison Rowat, The Herald, 02/06/2011

The whole thing is slickly put together, but in stripping out the cynicism, they've stripped out the romance too.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian,

Aaaah – or uuugh – depending on your mood.

**(*)(*)(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 03/06/2011

So prim it makes High School Musical look racy.

**(*)(*)(*)Chris Tookey, Daily Mail, 03/06/2011

It's so bad it's worth breaking up with your local cinema.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Daily Record, 03/06/2011

Prom assembles the usual high-school archetypes but stops short of giving them actual personalities that might encourage the target audience to tear themselves away from Glee.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 04/06/2011

It's the kind of thing that gives sincerity a bad name.

Philip French, The Observer, 05/06/2011

This Disney fare is so bland and unremarkable that you might be better off staying home and watching a repeat of Glee.
