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

THE WATER DIVINER :

“..the overstuffed story feels bombastic and contrived..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LITTLE BOY :

“..though occasionally sticky sweet and not always subtle, it's also a smart and very moving story..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

THE FORGER :

“..a movie where the colors blur sloppily..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

AFTER THE BALL :

“.."After the Ball" is a winning if predictable fable..”
by Tom Keogh [Seattle Times]

BROTHERLY LOVE :

“..despite the blazing guns, this script is not so tough..”
by Farran Smith Nehme [New York Post]

BLACKBIRD :

“..it's such a quiet, simple moment in a movie full of more overwrought ones - including a spiritual "deliverance" - but it makes a lasting impression. "Blackbird" would have benefited from using that approach more, rather than saddling a compelling drama..”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

SEE YOU IN VALHALLA :

“..is as deadly as its funereal subject matter..”
by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post]

ADULT BEGINNERS :

“..it's all very low stakes. We know how this is going to turn out. But it is a pleasure watching Kroll and Byrne to the end..”
by Molly Eichel [Philadelphia Inquirer]

JUST BEFORE I GO :

“..Courteney Cox's misbegotten project is a comedy-drama that, to Cox's credit, doesn't feel at all like a TV sitcom..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

MISERY LOVES COMEDY :

“..the funny folks in actor Kevin Pollak's well-structured doc can actually break down what they do..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
