Movie Reviews

  • with a star-studded cast, dazzling design, and thrilling dance numbers, "The Prom" is the best of what Ryan Murphy can offer Hollywood -- a taste of the past with its eyes on the future
    Review rate : B by Jude Dry [IndieWire ]
  • while the respectable ambition of what is supposed to amount to a fun gay musical for the youth is not absent, it's a film that comes out less ambitious and more chaste and more dewy-eyed than "Glee" at some of its messiest
    Review rate : C- by Kyle Turner [The Playlist ]
  • this is a feel great musical extravaganza; It is a wholly entertaining and hilarious musical about acceptance and inclusion. A film that celebrates being alive and being proud of who you are. "The Prom" is one of the best films 2020 has to offer
    4.5 of 5 by Scott Menzel [We Live Entertainment ]
  • Ryan Murphy delivers one hell of a show; The Prom is a loud, proud glitter-ball of a film, and doesn't pretend to be anything else. It stumbles in the second half and the relentless cheer is a little exhausting, but its energy and wit remains infectious
    3 of 5 by Ben Travis [Empire Magazine ]
  • full of catchy music, a smile-inducing vibe, and a strong message of acceptance, this is a lovely musical; it's well worth a watch; "The Prom" ultimately succeeds due to the delightful vibe and strong message at its core
    3 of 5 by Joey Magidson [Awards Radar ]
  • bedazzled to within an inch of its life; The movie's most undeniable value is in the representation it provides to LGBTQ teens via a high school dance that is every emotionally isolated queer kid's rainbow dream
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • a show-stopping, glitter-dusted extravaganza; Ryan Murphy's star-studded restaging of the hit Broadway musical hits all the right notes; this joyous ode to musical theatre honours the buoyant melodies and heart-wrenching solos
    4 of 5 by Emily Maskell [Little White Lies ]
  • "The Prom", like "Glee" and the "High School Musical" films, is on some level a knowingly assembled package of shiny happy film-musical cliches. Yet Murphy, gives the movie an intoxicating visual sweep, and there's a beguiling wit to the dialogue
    by Owen Gleiberman [Variety ]
  • "The Prom" is narratively sloppy, emotionally false, visually ugly, morally superior; Some of the songs have charm. The cast is undeniably talented. But ultimately, the film has way too much in common with the egomaniacs at its center
    Review rate : D by Mary Sollosi [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • "The Prom" is as corny as you like, and there is hardly a plot turn, transition or song-cue that can't be guessed well in advance; but it's so goofy that you just have to enjoy it, and there are some very funny lines
    4 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • "The Prom" is a wondrously entertaining and big-hearted musical comedy guaranteed to crowd-please
    3.5 of 4 by Mara Reinstein [Us Weekly ]
