Aimed at teenage girls (and maybe their nostalgic moms), this Disney flick crams in just about every romantic-comedy cliché in the book.
First, there’s a squeaky-clean class president and prom organizer (Aimee Teegarden), who just wants everyone to have an unforgettable night. When things don’t work out with her date, she falls for the school’s biker bad boy (Thomas McDonell), who’s really super-soft underneath his tough-guy exterior.
Various subplots revolve around a surprisingly savvy stoner (Joe Adler), a desperate-but-likable nerd (Nicholas Braun), and an overprotective dad (Dean Norris). Breakups and make-ups take place as prom nears, but by the end, all dramas are resolved so the big dance can go off without a hitch. --Jeff Niesel
