The Prom

“The Prom” is a movie musical with a message that was recently on Broadway. Meryl Streep and James Corden star as two narcissist Broadway stars who are looking for a publicity stunt to help revive their careers. They decide to help a high school girl in Indiana who wants to go to her prom with her girlfriend, but it is forbidden. Nicole Kidman as a chorus girl and Andrew Rannells as an out-of-work actor agree to go along. The plot is just an excuse for some outstanding production numbers. The stand out in the cast is Meryl Streep, playing a diva, sings incredibly. I knew she could sing, but not like this! And for a woman of of 71 she looks amazing. Andrew Rannells, who starred in “Book of Mormon”, is also quite good. Corden are Kidman are O.K., but not up to the other two. The Indiana teenagers are a bit cliche, but enjoyable in the production numbers. This is a likable piece of fluff. The production numbers are fun to watch and well produced. A nice way to spend an evening.
