REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..there are new tweeners every year. To them, the characters and plot devices in this perfectly competent film might well seem fresh..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
2 of 4

“..prom misses its chance to be more than a lightweight teen romance..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
“..prom has a cheerful good nature and a solid cast of youngsters..”
by Kirk Honeycutt [Hollywood Reporter]
5 of 5

“..may be the same old thing, and squeaky-clean to the point of mild-to-moderate aggravation, but it's not pushy..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]
1.5 of 4

“..it's not exactly a message movie..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
2 of 4

“..it's a movie with a few charming moments and fewer funny ones..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
2 of 4

“..is deeply unthreatening stuff - "Gossip Girl " without the sex, "Skins " without the drugs, "Glee " without the show tunes and dysfunction..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
“..for the target audience, "Prom" musters a few nice moments, perhaps, but nothing remotely approaching perfection -- and hardly any memorable ones..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]
Review rate : B

“..at first, Prom seems a little innocuous, but this winning after-school trifle has a savvy heart that grows on you..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
2.5 of 5

“..adults will yawn, having seen this movie (and possibly lived it) a few times, but for its 11- to 16-year-old target audience, it'll be exactly right..”
by Jason Heck [Kansas City Star]

THE LOFT :

“.."The Loft" is a stylish whodunit that struggles to stitch the label "Hitchcockian" right on the inner pocket..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

BLACK OR WHITE :

“..Black or White is an uncommonly brave film but it loses its gumption at the end..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]

AMIRA & SAM :

“..nothing feels truly at stake, no matter how weighty the risks the characters face, but there are charming moments along the way..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]

SUBURBAN GOTHIC :

“..it's unsatisfying overall, trying too hard to look like it doesn't care..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

GIRLHOOD :

“..director Celine Sciamma explores a very different coming-of-age than in her 2011 film... with this vibrant portrait of a teenage girl..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

WILD CARD :

“.."Wild Card" doesn't really hit the rock bottom that would make it more than a series of sulks and wallops..”
by Nicolas Rapold [NY Times]

SUPREMACY :

“..despite a vein-popping lead performance (and Ms. Olivieri‚Äôs touching take on the classic broken-down moll), "Supremacy" remains stubbornly uninvolving..”
by Jeannette Catsoulis [NY Times]

BACKSTREET BOYS: SHOW 'EM WHAT YOU'RE MADE OF :

“..a behind-the-scenes portrait that should please the band's diehard fans, but offers little of substance to the uninitiated..”

THE DEVIL'S VIOLINIST :

“..while its themes border on the sensationalistic, the film lacks the sizzle, humor and wild imagination that Ken Russell brought to his similar classical music-themed cinematic excursions..”

BEAUTIFUL & TWISTED :

“..a lurid yet compelling docudrama..”
by Hal Boedeker [Orlando Sentinel]
