the prom not good. it's cute, meryl and andrew rannels shine (of course), and keegan-michael key has a surprisingly good singing voice! james corden, as expected, sucked. i don't really care about straight actors playing gay characters, but i do care about actors being good at their jobs. like, come on.
the actresses playing the teenage lesbians both look like they're 30, and jesus christ, who styled emma? someone who hates butch lesbians? because there is no other explanation for those costume choices.
i cry at a lot of movies, and the prom has all the elements necessary to make me cry: lesbians in high school in a midwestern state, super targeted and highly organized bullying, tension between gay people and their mothers. but it's such an empty movie that i had no emotional response to it whatsoever.
