Rating: PG

Genre: Family, Comedy, Drama

Latino POV:  It’s a nice family appropriate film with a good multi-cultural cast.  One of the nice things about seeing this film with the family, will be giving Latino parents who never experienced prom themselves access and insight into what their kids are talking about.  Prom is like a quinceanera, but without all of the parents and primos looking over you shoulder.
