I loved this show! So fun and made me cry on a few parts. Key's song was so beautiful and when hes sitting in the theater part I honestly paused the show, said "God I miss theater" and imagined being back there

I rewatched the movie a few times already, and even before watching I already formed a few assumptions about which actors would impress me and fit their parts VERY WELL, while also thinking about the people who tried to fit the role but fell flat. In my opinion, MERYL STREEP WAS PERFECT FOR THE ROLE OF DEE DEE ALLEN, and I’d already predicted that she would kill the song “the lady’s improving” and she didn’t let me down. Her elegance and ability to act like the diva that Dee Dee was, was nothing short of phenomenal . SHE WAS 10/10 AND NO ONE CAN CONVINCE ME OTHERWISE James Cordon was actually quite good as Barry, he absolutely NAILED the song and dance numbers, while maintaining a stage presence the whole time. I told my friend before I watched the film that I know that James could deliver the fun side of Barry very well, I just hoped that he could also pull off the serious and emotional scenes well; I was half right, he did pretty ok when he needed to be energetic, and bubbly, but a part of me also felt like he was trying too hard at certain points, and I couldn’t help but cringe. With the emotional scenes I think he did what he had to do, but I’m honestly indifferent. There were many scenes where I was left a little disappointed by his acting, but I was astounded with his delivery of the songs. He did my favorite character justice. Andrew Rannells was someone who I was really looking forward to seeing in this film who did quite good in my opinion! His rendition of “Love thy neighbor” was one of my favorites in the entire film along with “It’s time to dance”, “tonight belongs to you” and “the lady’s improving”. I do however wish that in some places there was a better delivery of the jokes! Trent Oliver is hilarious and I think that Andrew could’ve milked the heck out of how he was a Juilliard graduate, and I also wish the director used “talk to the hand” a little bit more in certain scenes. (The monster truck arena and the acceptance song were both opportunities to land good jokes, but I think it was the director’s choice to make certain scenes a little more stale by removing jokes that could’ve left me laughing for weeks) BUT ON ANDREW’S TAKE ON THE CHARACTER! I’d say he did rather well! My only note is his delivery on some of the jokes, but other than that, I think he did great! Nicole Kidman as Angie was something I can say I’m indifferent about, it was fine, but it wasn’t a stand out for me. I’m a little upset about her interpretation of the song “Zazz” in the actual show Angie S gave the character this fun and goofy glow while playing the part, and it was such a joy to watch, she never took herself too seriously when singing to song about having that flavor, that spark. I feel like Nicole did brilliant while singing, but she portrayed the character a little too sexy?? which is mostly ok for the character but at the same time, she lacked the charm that I loved so much about Angie, I also think that in the song (Zazz) she took herself too seriously and stuck to clear and crisp notes while signing the line “Give it some Zazz” when she could’ve just let herself have fun and take that simple line and give it some character! She wasn’t a standout for me, but I can’t say she did bad either. NOW!! FOR THE MAIN COUPLE Ariana DeBose as Alyssa, was frankly a little too angry for me. When Emma was calling her from the gym and begging Alyssa to meet her, saying “no” didn’t seem hard at all. Ariana simply said her lines. The emotion behind those lines were lacking for me, and when Emma hangs up, she isn’t anywhere close to tears and she doesn’t seem the slightest bit worried that this could be the end of their relationship, instead she calls out Emma sounding like a mom who’s gonna scold their kid. Compared to Isabelle McCalla (the original actress who played Alyssa), her performance fell flat. At the times she was supposed to be like, SUPER HAPPY, she was more like, pretty happy. She sang the song Alyssa Greene beautifully, that was the one moment where I think she really shined, but I do wish that whenever she tries to convey to Emma that she wants to do something, she actually seems so conflicted and hurt, as if she’s being held back from doing what she really wants to do. NOW! THE PERSON WHO DISAPPOINTED ME THE MOST!!! Jo Ellen as Emma was painful for me to watch, because I love Emma so much! Emma’s an awkward kid so whenever she’s around the actors at the start their big personalities are supposed to clash with her very introverted approach to things, that being said, Emma being slightly grumpy most of the time helps put some emphasis on how she’s so happy and carefree around Alyssa. BUT OH MY GOSH JO DID NO JUSTICE TO THE CHARACTER, Looking back at the same scene where I had notes for Ariana DeBose (the fake prom scene), she got the emotion, but at the same time when breaking up with Alyssa THE GIRL WAS FRIGGIN SMILING!! JO!! NOOOOOOO! YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE BREAKING UP WITH THE GIRL WHO CHANGED YOU’RE LIFE, YET AT THE SAME TIME SHE’S SUPPOSED TO BE HURTING YOUUU!! WHY ARE YOU SMILING!?!? She seemed so willing to go along with the Actor’s ideas, when the Emma I know would be really hesitant. I can go on but I’ve already used up my afternoon writing this. Jo Ellen’s portrayal of Emma was heartbreaking for me to watch. Now. A word on the changes made to the film... THANK GOD IT’S A MUSICAL, the song and dance numbers saved the whole thing. But I’m so annoyed that they changed Barry’s backstory and they removed my favorite line of the entire show. In the scene when Alyssa’s mom is telling her that she’s confused about her(Alssa’s) sexuality and that she(Alyssa) doesn’t know what she’s talking about, Barry intervenes and says “Don’t. You’re going to lose her. You’re going to lose your daughter that way. Believe me, I know”, this is also why I’m slightly upset he made amends with his mother in the film, because this line from the original was heartbreaking because at that point he couldn’t turn back, and he was trying so desperately to stop another family from tearing themselves apart. I’m also so sad that his backstory with prom changed because the original idea of him not being allowed to go to prom like Emma would have been more impactful because Emma would have gotten to meet someone who knows first-hand how she’s feeling. The changing of the instrumental dance break during the song “it’s time to dance” just left me in shock. I understand that they wanted to change it a little so it wasn’t identical to the original, but in doing so, they removed some of the things I loved so much about the original. I’m happy it didn’t completely flop, but it wasn’t the biggest win either. Some of the line changes, and the casting choices broke my heart. The Broadway actor gang was ok. But Emma and Alyssa really blew it, THEY ARE THE MAIN COUPLE!!! And I found myself more interested in Kaylee and Shelby opposed to the FRIGGIN MAIN GIRLS!! I really wish that Caitlyn and Isabelle reprised their roles, because Jo and Ariana did no justice. However, despite all that. I still love the Prom and it’s message with all my heart. No one can ever make me HATE the film. For the most part, I think it did what it had to do, so congrats to the cast and crew, you have my approval. Please note that this is just my opinion, and it’s ok if you don’t agree.
