I really love musicals, but Netflix’s attempt at a cheerful, joyful, colorful, and culturally significant film turns out to be one of the most cringe-worthy, awfully stereotypical, ridiculously exaggerated movies of the year. From the astoundingly over-the-top (and honestly, somewhat insulting) performance from James Corden and Jo Ellen Pellman’s one-dimensional debut to the contradictory narrative, Ryan Murphy’s first feature film since 2010’s Eat, Pray, Love is a massive disappointment.
The Prom is supposed to celebrate equality by supporting an inclusive prom where everyone can go and feel comfortable being themselves. However, it restrains itself from showing a homosexual kiss or really any sort of intimacy, leaving that to the very last second of the movie, but it doesn’t have any problems in fully developing a heterosexual relationship meanwhile. The breaking out into songs (which are a bit too many) mostly feels incredibly forced, making the whole film look more like a collection of sketches than an actual movie.
A few excellent performances (Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Andrew Rannells, Keegan-Michael Key), a couple of quite entertaining musical numbers, some nice choreography and camera work (Matthew Libatique), and an admittedly ambitious production design save this film from being a complete trainwreck, but it’s still a disaster.
‘The Prom’ could have been something special like the show was on Broadway, but instead of listening to the message the show has about negative effect star-power and acceptance, the movie actively dodges those themes. Removing Corden doesn’t fix this mess, but it would have been a start. I can’t say I don’t recommend it; these are great songs and sung well here. I would catch myself smiling at the musical numbers, and I haven’t stopped listening to the soundtrack. The film’s opening credits are just the actor’s names in the logo font, and I got chills with the score and seeing that on the big screen, with Rannells and Kidman reason alone to watch, along with newcomer Pellman. I love musicals – they have an energy no other genre has, but the lesson from ‘The Prom’ is the same as ‘Cats’: make something that’s not for the masses, but true to the story.
Also, the movie gets Streep to rap in the credit’s song, and that’s honestly amazing.

At times a train wreck and other times a lot of fun
If you can get past the disastrous first 30 min and James Corden awful over acting the movie is pretty good. At times the film is bad really bad but then other times it’s a lot of fun. It’s one of those movies where you just have to go with the flow it is what it is. It’s over the top but I think that’s the point but does it work well at times it does and other times it’s doesn’t. The actors are underused there good but they could of been better but I’m not blaming the actors they did there best for what they got. Is this the best film or musical ever made no it doesn’t come close but it’s a fun musical.
Stellar Cast Wasted on Uninspired Film & Score
Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman are my favourite actors. However, the script and score of Prom didn’t use this stellar cast’s potential…. not even in the slightest bit. Every song sounds the same… and follows the same unremarkable, easily forgettable form and melodic styles and resolutions.
