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]

LATEST REVIEWS

INTO THE WOODS :

“..will entertain youth audiences yet contains enough sly humor and narrative complexity to keep adults engaged..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB :

“..there's a serenity to museum visits, especially if it's a place you know and love. "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," amazingly, recaptures that feeling in big-studio franchise form..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ELF: BUDDY'S MUSICAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."Elf" offers some slight, warmed over charms, but viewers would be better off catching one of the umpteen TV showings of the original "Elf" movie..”
by Rob Owen [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]

THE INTERVIEW :

“..wild and wildly uneven..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]

THE GAMBLER :

“..a slick remake of the gritty original is marked by sharp performances..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

MR. TURNER :

“..an ecstatically beautiful and exquisitely detailed portrait of the artist as a cantankerous middle-aged man..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

SONG OF THE SEA :

“..a gorgeously rendered animated feature from Ireland..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

ANNIE :

“..more of a facelift than an update, the pic dusts off some old songs, adds a few desultory stabs at new ones, and stuffs the frame with shiny upscale gadgets that scream "modern"..”
by Ronnie Scheib [Variety]

THE SANTA CON :

“..this movie was mostly about crime and lies and betrayal and sticking your nose into other people's business..”
by Jill O'Rourke [Crushable]
