THE PROM - Review
Do you love musicals? Are you a fan of Broadway? Do you consider MAMA MIA to be one of the greatest movies of all time?
Well, get ready to move it down a notch, because it is time to go to THE PROM.
This is a fantastically funny musical that is essentially FOOTLOOSE for a new generation.
The songs are catchy, and the lyrics are hysterical. The costumes are out of this world, and the story is captivating.
This film is an emotional roller coaster in the best way possible. You will be feeling something from the opening credits until the very end. One minute your jaw will be hurting from all of the smiling, the next you'll be searching the couch cushions for another tissue to soak up your tears.
James Corden deserves a best supporting actor award for his role. He will have you laughing until your side hurts and then he will break your heart and have you ugly crying on your laptop keyboard.
The movie also introduces us to Jo Ellen Pellman. She plays the lead role of Emma, and she is amazing. You will fall in love with her character immediately and cheer her on the entire way.
My only real criticism of it is that it is way too long. Clocking in at almost 2 hours and 15 minutes. Thankfully, it is streaming so you can create your own intermission.
So, grab your sequin dress, or your sequin tux, and enjoy THE PROM.
