My Take on the DVD
All of us have had our days in high school and ultimately the high school prom at our individual schools as well. This movie looks at the idea of Prom and what it means to the characters in the movie itself. While there are some stereotypical storylines within this, I do have to commend the cast on the work that they have created as they did a good job at portraying high school today and some of the stress that kids today are facing too.

One of the things that I liked about this movie was that though there are some stereotypical characters within the DVD, the movie goes deeper than this. The movie itself as I mentioned tackles a number of deeper societal and personal issues which in the long run allows the characters identify what is most important within their life. 

So though this is a Disney film and though it is geared for the teenage crowd, there are positive messages throughout that push a person to consider for themselves what Prom means and stands for in their own life (Deep, yet true). The movie was enjoyable and I would recommend to any family!
