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]
