There's a part where the main character talks about race and he says he's never seen a "licorice person" before
I watched this not long after it came out but didn't remember much of it. The memory of this movie randomly popped up in my head so on a whim I decided to watch it. I enjoyed it way more than I expected. It was a cute, fun, and inoffensive movie with genuinely likable characters and heartwarming moments. Unfortunately I can't relate to this movie because my prom experience was exactly this-
My mom/friends: "What are you wearing to prom?"
Me: "Oh yeah I'm not going"
My mom/friends: "Wtf why?"
Me: "Idk because I don't wanna"
