This squeaky-clean Disney vehicle is only moderately exasperating in its reliance on stereotypes and its reluctance to dip a toe into realism, but the young cast is spirited enough and the be-your-own-person message is passed off without shrillness.
Aimee Teegarden plays the pretty Goody Two-Shoes who organises prom night but can't get a date of her own, Thomas McDonell is the young Johnny Deppalike who poses as a rebel but hides a heart of pure tenderness. Aaaah – or uuugh – depending on your mood.
