High school.

It happens to everyone.

And for four years,

it has a way of dividing us.

Athletes, overachievers,

drama queens, misfits, jokers...

But then, just before it ends,

when we're almost out the door...

... one night has a way

of bringing us together.


It's the one night

when nobody cares

who wore the varsity jacket

and who got cut from the team.

It's the night when

you might find yourself

singing at the top of your lungs with

people you've never even spoken to.

The night when that cute guy

from your math class

might finally make his move.

Prom's our night,

and each of us wants it

to be unforgettable.

That's why I've been working

all semester to make it perfect.

For me, and for all the seniors

at Brookside High.

Hey, Nova.

We were three weeks away

and everything was going as planned.

Well, almost everything.

Has he asked you yet?

It's 8.00 a.m.

He will!

You guys are perfect together.

You're in all the same

AP classes, swim team co-captains,

you've both been, like, class

everything since kindergarten.

Trust me, it's going to happen.

Has he asked you yet?

Well, he will.

He's never once made a move.

Well, he's Brandon. He's shy.

Or, maybe he's just not interested.

Don't you want him to ask you?

Yes, I want him to ask me. It's prom!

Here he comes.

Hey, Nova!

- It's happening.

- Bye.

Wow. Beautiful.

Brandon! Thanks.

Posters look great. Nice job.


I'm gonna do the cafeteria.


You know, Rachel, I found that prom

dress you were talking about.

Thanks, Nova. We'll be there.

You know, you could go.

No, thank you.

Prom's like

the Olympics of high school.

You wait four years,

three people have a good time,

and everybody else gets to live

on with shattered dreams.

My stepbrother, folks.

Can you believe he's single?

Come on, Lloyd. Your fear of girls

has gone from cute to clinical.

It's just prom.

Ask somebody. And be creative.

This is your last chance to make anyone

remember you even went here.

Wow. Nova, that looks awesome.

Thanks. Make sure you and Tyler

aren't too late.

We crown prom king and queen

at 9.35. Just saying.

Hey! My queen!

Hey, Tyler.

- Hi, Tyler.

- What's up, man?

So, I saw the posters,

and I thought about you.

And about a party bus.

Oh, yeah!

Hey, Tyler, can we talk?

OK, so you can only listen

to one artist for the rest of your life,

- and Stick Hippo does not exist. Go.

- Oh, man.

No Stick Hippo, the

greatest band of all time?

Jack White. You get three

epic bands, and counting.

Lucas, you blow my mind every day.

OK, next one. Grunge rock supergroup,

Good one. OK, how 'bout...

Look at them.

I want to go to prom.

Well, Megan Brooks went

when she was a sophomore.

So it can totally happen.

It's like they're in a trance.


- See you later.

- Bye.

- Lucas, you gotta ask her out.

- Dude, you're crazy.

She doesn't want to go out with me.

I've got nothing to offer.

No car, no cool parties, no prom.

Check it out.

Prom this year

is gonna be so much fun.

Oh, my gosh. I really want to go

with Dakota. That'd be amazing.

Hey, Rhoda,

I turned 18 last week.

You know what that means, right?

They can try you as an adult?

Rhoda! You break my heart.

It means we can

finally run away together.

You, me, the open road.

So, what are you in for?

Let me guess.

Trouble at the model UN?

Prom poster crisis?

Wait, I know.

You're receiving an award

for most awards.

Actually, I'm in trouble this time.


They caught me riding around

school on my little moped

- because I think I'm such a rebel.

- It's not a moped.
