Best Prom Movies

Posted on April 14th, 2017

It’s beginning to look a lot like prom season.

Just because you’re older-ish doesn’t mean you can’t get into the spirit. Prom season is the perfect excuse to watch epic prom movies or dive deep into blissful binge-watching of your favorite high school TV dramas. Gather your girls, order a pizza (or two!) and settle in for some good old fashioned memory lane strolling. Unlike prom, you can wear sweatpants to this party!

Top 5 Prom Movies (like ever).

#1 Pretty in Pink (All the feels. P.S. This was in theaters more than 30 years ago. OMG.)
#2 10 Things I Hate About You (Aww, now this takes us back.)
#3 Mean Girls (Long live The Plastics!)
#4 She’s All That (Freddie Prinze, Jr… sigh.)
#5 Grease (Needs no explanation.)

*Scariest-prom-ever honorable mention: Carrie
**Too-cool-for-prom honorable mention: The Craft
***Sort-of-prom-related, because, dancing: Dirty Dancing
****Nothing-to-do-with-prom but, Channing Tatum: Magic Mike

If you’re more in the TV marathon mood.

Hulu is on POINT with the high school drama throwbacks! 90210, Party of Five, My So-Called Life, AND Dawson’s Creek. This party could go all night.

Prom throwback 2017, no filter.

Don’t forget to break out your photo albums (remember when we had those) and tell your girlfriends to bring theirs! Bonus points: Find out what song was #1 the year of your prom, and stage your best performance. Hairbrushes as mics, obviously.
