“So I was just wondering … if you aren’t already going with someone … and I’m not already going with someone. Then … maybe … we should, like, go together or something … maybe?”
Let’s be real. PROM wouldn’t be Prom with out time honoured traditions and cheesy clichés. It just wouldn’t! So with Prom Season quickly approaching and your “I’ll NEVER find a dress!” anxiety looming, let’s take a look back at the best of the best.
For the love of white tuxedos and stretch Hummer limos I present to you THE TOP 10 MOST EPIC PROM SCENES OF ALL TIME:
Because it’s SO scary and iconic, its completely unforgettable. And because although it doesn’t stick to the teen dream rom-com prom formula it still manages to capture prom in all its cliquey / angsty glory.
9. FOOTLOOSE (THE OG)
As in the original gangsta version. Not that Julianne Hough crap. Because it’s your Prom and you’ll dance if you want to!!!
8. ROMI AND MICHELLE’S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION
Because pastels are boring and dressing like a Material Girl in a Material World isn’t. And because sticking it to the cool kids at your high school reunion is a dream come true.
7. MEAN GIRLS
I would have ranked it higher, but it is technically the Spring Fling, and not the Prom … so you know, technicalities. Regardless it still makes the list because you will do bigger things in life than winning a plastic tiara. (Please excuse shotty video quality)
6. 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU
Because watching Alex Mac pick JGL over Andrew Keegan – while kneeing him in the balls – will never stop being amazing.
5. SAVED BY THE BELL
Because they only way you can forgive Kelly for getting to go to the Prom with Zack is knowing her dad is poor and she wore sweats. (Click the image to watch on YouTube)
4. SHE’S ALL THAT
Because every prom should have Usher Dj and a choreographed dance to Fat Boy Slim.
3. NEVER BEEN KISSED
Because everyone deserves a Prom do over, especially Josey Grosey. Oh, and because theme proms are better than regular proms.
2. AMERICAN PIE
Because losing your virginity on Prom night has never been funnier.
1. PRETTY IN PINK
Because every time Andy yells “What about prom, Blane?” in the middle of the hallway, my heart immediately breaks. And because every girl needs a Duckie in their life.
And BONUS, because this is MTV, and I’m a really nice and generous person:
BONUS. Laguna Beach Promposals
Because simply asking someone to prom face to face is never enough.
