Nerdy high school senior Danny has spent six hundred bucks on the hotel room, the limo and the tux for his prom. He's only missing one thing - the girl. Hampered by well intentioned but clueless advice from his newly divorced parents and unsympathetic mocking from his best friends, Danny battles peer pressure, teen angst and his own raging hormones as he desperately searches for a prom date. Danny's luckless quest turns to panic when he learns that even Bart - the school's biggest dweeb - has secured not only a date but also a hotel room for the night.

Danny is facing this crisis as well as the breakup of his parents marriage; his mother has re-dated with some success while his father is dating several women and is living in deplorable conditions. Danny's father is supportive in trying to help his son find a date with hilarious results, and William H. Macy does an excellent job in this role.
I just wish the movie had been a little bit longer as I would have liked to have seen more action at the prom; however, this shouldn't take away from its premise which is the fact that the prom isn't the be all and end all of life, but the end of one chapter and the beginning of another.
But, fan or not, the big satisfaction of this movie is the hilarious way it's underplayed: very European; very subtle; very funny. And it takes a lot of skill to do this. You come away after watching it, feeliing you've been given a real treat. If you watch the commentary track, the Popup Production Notebook, you can perfectly happily watch it all through again, relishing the real skill and effort that's been put into it. And the jokes are even funnier: unusual for a light comedy.
So I bought this DVD as a Brandon Hardesty fan, just to see how he fared in his first movie, but frankly expecting the usual gross-out-humour teen movie - when I'm well past my teens and some. I couldn't have been more wrong about the quality. It's a good movie, and suitable for all ages from 13 to 93 (it's a PG-13).
Just one possible snag: in the UK you need an all-regions DVD player to watch this one; but these players are increasingly common now, anyway.
