Ah, prom. We all have fond memories of getting too drunk on Zimas and throwing up on our date in the back of the limo. Okay, fine, maybe that was just our prom. As bad as that may sound, we’re still pretty sure it was better than the examples below. (Side note: whatever happened to Zima, anyway?)
5. Pretty in Pink
Sure, things end up romantic and sweet for Andie and Blane, but Duckie’s night was supremely awkward.
4. Napoleon Dynamite
Napoleon’s whole life is basically a montage of awkward amazingness. Watching him slow dance with Deb and attempt a pseudo-romantic moment is the icing on the cake.
3. Not Another Teen Movie
Technically, this is after prom, but it still counts since Jake’s in his tux. Never mind that he blatantly uses lines from famous movies on Janey (and gets called out by an expert), but when he finally is honest, she is too stupid to believe him.
Courtney wins prom queen, but at a cost. Her former friends expose her for murdering the teen dream during her acceptance speech to her constituents.
Two words: pig’s blood.
