The graduating class at Miss Aversham and Miss Cronstall s School for Girls find that they have - in defiance of the natural laws of probability - all blossomed simultaneously. Capitalizing on their unique status, and intent on teaching high school boys to NEVER take girls for granted, they issue a challenge to the boys of Easthill's rival private schools, Selby and Lancaster. The winner in a series of designated competitions will be awarded exclusive rights to the girls as prom dates. Like the capricious and meddlesome gods of Greek mythology, the ACS girls pit the boys schools against each other in a (secret) Prom War.

It's not. It's a poor excuse for a teen film about a prom with some cringe-worthy over-acting from several unheard-ofs who are all far too old to be attending prom.
This film would be OK for a 13 year old girl.

The senior class of an all-girls private school challenges two boys school rivals to compete with one another, the winner earning the right to take the girls to prom. Unfortunately the writing isn't that funny, even for a bubbly teen film.
What makes Prom Wars watchable is that it has a solid cast of college-aged actors, all with a good deal of TV and film experience. The most interesting casting is the talented and gorgeous Alia Shawkat, who did a great job in "Bart Got a Room" and "Amreeka." Other notables include the lovely Keenan MacWilliam of "Saddle Club" fame, and hip Ricky Ullman. Most of the experienced supporting cast are Canadian, which reflects the Montréal shooting location.
The movie was shot well, has a decent production value, and a catchy pop-rock soundtrack. My only real complaint is that there weren't enough funny scenes that stood out. Since the film earned an R-rating for language, they should have gone all-out like American Pie or Superbad. Instead the film keeps things very light, but with few laugh-out-loud moments. The movie is still worth checking out, watch it once before you decide whether to buy the DVD.
The lead cast fill their roles beautifully, and the story and soundtrack are catching. Alia Shawkat is as lovely and clever as you've seen her in Arrested Development, and Raviv Ullman is still a brilliant and underrated actor. His subtle expressions and lack of shame in being a complete lunatic shine in this film, and they both play complex characters with acting skills beyond their age. The background personalities light up the screen as well, and the final battle (and ending twist) make this one of my favorite movies. I hope this rich movie makes your day as much as it has mine.
