The Prom


When some of Broadwayā€™s biggest stars (Meryl Streep, James Corden, Nicole Kidman) hear of a high-school girl (Jo Ellen Pellman) in Indiana who canā€™t take her girlfriend to the prom, they see a PR opportunity. An adaptation of the Broadway musical for the Grease and Mamma Mia crowd; boisterous, funny and slick with a relevant message about inclusion. The three leads are having fun with their liberal caricatures fighting rural homophobia and are a big reason to see the movie. Unnecessarily bloated and the song score is a tad anonymous, but still engaging.Ā
