Pin It







About the Movie

For Nova Prescott (Aimee Teegarden), it’s a classic tale of opposites attracting when she finds herself drawn to the guy (Thomas McDonell) who gets in the way of her perfect prom. Share the laughter and the drama as secrets are brought to light, seemingly steady relationships unravel and new romance catches fire. Get ready for this hilariously heartfelt date with destiny featuring a hot ensemble cast of rising young stars and cool bonus features. There are hundreds of nights in high school, but there’s only one Prom!





MEET THE CAST!
Discover the famous faces behind the movie’s characters…
THOMAS MCDONELL
“I play Jesse Richter in Prom. Jesse is a loner and he’s a bit of a rebel – but he’s nothing like me in real life. He’s a complicated guy because he has a lot of issues at home.”

AIMEE TEEGARDEN
“I play Nova Prescott in the movie. Nova is in charge of the school prom and she takes her role very seriously. She likes everything to be perfect – but it doesn’t always work out that way.”

NICHOLAS BRAUN
“My character is Lloyd and he spends most of the movie trying to get a date for the school prom. He’s pretty invisible at school, but he’s a romantic at heart and he provides a lot of the comedy in the film.”

DANIELLE CAMPBELL
“I play a very down-to-earth girl named Simone Daniels in Prom. Simone is a free spirit who loves music and playing the guitar – and she’s very similar to me in real life. I’m down to earth, I love music and I’ve started to learn the guitar, too!”

JARED KUSNITZ
“I play a guy named Justin Wexler in the movie. Justin is a sweet, smart and loyal guy who is besotted with his girlfriend at school. Their relationship has a lot of ups and downs during the movie – but ultimately things work out for the best.”

JANELLE ORTIZ
“My character is the gossip girl of the movie. Her name is Ali Gomez and she knows everything about everybody in her school. She knows all the drama and all of the details – and she was so much fun to play.”

DE’VAUGHN NIXON
“Tyler Barso is the name of my character in Prom. Tyler is the most popular guy in school. He’s smart, charismatic and he’s the captain of the lacrosse team – but he’s also a self-absorbed charmer who finds himself in trouble!”

KYLIE BUNBURY
“My character is the most popular girl in school. Her name is Jordan Lundley and she is the head cheerleader. Movies usually portray cheerleaders as mean girls, but Jordan is very different. She’s a really sweet girl.”

MY REVIEW

I thought Prom was a cute movie. Very family friendly- no swearing, no nudity, nothing vulgar etc.. It is certainly geared to the tween/ younger teen age group. I liked the messages of the movie- be yourself, accept yourself, don't judge a book by its cover, don't be a jerk etc... all good lessons to learn. I also appreciated that they didn't stick the characters into typical roles- ex. mean head cheerleader. 

I thought the young actors all did an excellent job portraying their various characters and Nicholas Braun (Lloyd) made me laugh out loud.  The bloopers in the special features were very funny as well. 

I think this would probably be an excellent movie to show at a teenage girl's slumber party or similar event. Good clean fun show.
