Disney's PROM

On DVD August 30th, 2011

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.


 We had seen the trailer to this movie on another we had just recently purchased and my older two girls wanted to see it, so when we were browsing the aisles in Walmart today and I saw that it was FINALLY here we just had to purchase it.  We loved the previews, my youngest daughter refers to it as "the funny movie with the sign that the truck drives away with", once you watch it you will understand the reference.

  We watched it with dinner, which we don't normally get to do, but I said we could watch it tonight and we were running late so we did both at the same time.  And we laughed, truly enjoyed it.  If you have young girls or are one of those people who just love reminiscing this is a great movie.  I don't recall any fowl language in Prom.  I really enjoyed it, as usual the good girl falls for the bad boy and she softens him, he hardens her.  It's a story of finding who you are and realizing that everything you've done for the last four years (high school) doesn't really matter.  It all boils down to that one night.  You will be remembered for the dress you wear, the shoes, the hair, who you come with, who you leave with.  I for one never went to my prom which made it kind of sad for me.  I know silly.  BUT It's true.  Even as an adult I can still watch movies like this and look back at the times in my own life and think "yep, that's how it is, was, will always be".  New kids go to prom every year, sophomores only dream of going, rarely being asked.  And although the theme changes year to year the story stays the same.  The good guy doesn't always get the girl at first, but the smart girl realizes in the end where she should be.  This movie is very much how I can imagine prom to be nowadays.  The characters are believable, lovable and realistic.  They aren't all out there, it's not a popularity contest, it's nice to see a movie about "the other kids".  I liked it a lot, go out and get yourself a copy today.

  I know that we will watch this movie time and time again, but I don't think it will be on repeat.  I give this movie 8 out of 10 fingers.  (didn't keep my 3 year old's attention, but everyone else liked it a lot)

~~I purchased this movie with my money and was not given it to review~~
