When I was in high school, I would have pretended like this movie was beneath me, that it's just about stupid prom. That's sort of what high school is about too. But I secretly would have loved it.

...a perfectly watchable - albeit utterly forgettable - little drama...

If Disney missed the bulls-eye this time, they still hit the target (audience).

With a squeaky-clean, smiling multi-ethnic cast, Prom gives a non-musical nod to Glee but doesn't dare address the same awkward teen issues that have made the show so popular.

As high-school movies go, Prom isn't the coolest kid in class, but an appealing cast ensures that the film's sweetness and good-humour will go down well with tweens, even if their older siblings find proceedings a little too safe and insipid.

... predictably sweet and sweetly predictable.

Prom turns what could have been a string of punch lines and lump-in-the-throat passages into an affecting group portrait.

A Disney-esque sanitized version of the Prom phenom, but what's wrong with that?

In the way that a real prom will start with everyone standing around staring at each other but end with a crowded dance floor, Prom starts to pick up steam as it goes along.

Prom is a good-hearted, perfectly watchable bonbon about adolescents with little on their minds besides who will ask or be asked to the graduation night shindig.

Here's a rare bird: a film made for "tweens" that actually takes young people and their emotions seriously, instead of playing them for cheap laughs. What's more, Prom won't make parents cringe by exposing their children to characters who...

I think people who would go to a movie named "Prom" are going to like the movie named "Prom."

Director Joe Nussbaum's movie comes from promising first-time screenwriter Katie Wech. Her work has a nice spirit; "Prom" may be the same old thing, and squeaky-clean to the point of mild-to-moderate aggravation, but it's not pushy.

There are new tweeners every year. To them, the characters and plot devices in this perfectly competent film might well seem fresh.

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.

Tweens everywhere will be more than pleased with the up-and-down (but never really that down) adventures of a group of teens getting ready for their big night.

For its intended audience, it hits just the right note of drama mixed with cuteness.

'Prom,' directed with too bland a TV hand by Joe Nussbaum, evaporates as you watch it, but it does go down easy.
