Here’s what the teen audience had to say…
Every PaaM night, we ask our teens to give us their honest reviews of the winning movie. We then select voices that capture the range of opinions and critiques. Read what Cianna (TRaC Star), Zuri (The Return PaaMers), Madison (Reigning PaaM Reviewer), and one shy PaaMer thought about this feel good 90s flick.
Choose three words to describe this movie.
Cianna: INTERESTING, UNIQUE, LOVELY
Anonymous: INTERESTING, PREDICTABLE, ENTERTAINING
Zuri: CORNY, KINDA FUNNY, INTERESTING
Madison: CHEESY in all the right ways, A LOVE LETTER to the 90s, ROMANTICALLY ADORABLE
What was your favorite scene? Bonus: Why? SPOILER ALERT!
Cianna: The punching scene at prom.
Anonymous: The end when Kat got the guitar.
Zuri: When Joey got punched.
Madison: Ahh! My favorite scene was when Kat read her poem in class and it was totally @ Patrick. Why? Because it was so sad and cute and even made the badass Patrick cry!
Would you recommend this to a friend? Why or why not?
Cianna: Yes, it’s very entertaining.
Anonymous: Yes, Pizza and a Movie is a great opportunity for teens.
Zuri: No, I don’t think they would like the movie.
Madison: Yes! it is the perfect movie for people who love the 90s and always dreamed about having a hopelessly adorable teen romance!
