In Prom, Walt Disney Studios has created a lively, reasonably smart teen film that won’t insult the intelligence of any adults who should happen on it. Sure, it postulates a truly mythical version of high school and prom, but movies are all about the imagination and the Disneyverse lives there.
A few days ago I sat in on a teleconference Q&A with Meaghan Martin and Nicholas Braun who play Bianca and Cameron on ABC Family’s sitcom 10 Things I Hate About You [new eps beginning Monday, 8/7C] based on the hit movie of the same name. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the two are both dedicated to their craft and smart as whips. The Q&A went far a field and the two were never thrown – and they weren’t shy about letting us know they were having a good time: the laughter was spontaneous and frequent.
