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

ALOHA :

“..the chemistry is mostly forced, the story without an emotional core. And though Crowe's facility for language can be striking, here it never moves beyond self-consciousness..”
by Sheri Linden [Hollywood Reporter]

TANU WEDS MANU RETURNS :

“..Tanu Weds Manu Returns is as entertaining and engaging a film as any that Bollywood has delivered this year..”
by Harish Jaiswal [Cine Magazine Digital]

BARELY LETHAL :

“..the movie has a few cute moments, but for the most part it's as predictable as being bored in trigonometry..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

SURVIVOR :

“..director James McTeigue ( V for Vendetta) has turned in a crisply efficient thriller that doesn’t surprise but still manages to be mildly entertaining over the course of its predictable 96 minutes..”
by Cary Darling [DFW.com]

SAN ANDREAS :

“..it's hard to appreciate San Andreas as much more than a series of special effects vistas: impeccably detailed, completely plastic..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

MACBETH :

“..fearsomely visceral and impeccably performed, it's a brisk, bracing update, even as it remains exquisitely in period..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]

INSIDE OUT :

“..delightfully inventive, funny and touching and, surreptitiously, a great way of helping kids get a handle on all those inexplicable feelings..”
by David Sexton [This is London]

SICARIO :

“..Villeneuve handles conventional action sequences terrifically well..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

SEA OF TREES :

“..from the cloying, ever-present score to the complete lack of narrative momentum, it all adds up to a film that's easily Van Sant's worst..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

TOMORROWLAND :

“..the movie can conjure up futuristic images, but the story is nothing we haven't seen before...”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]
