Synopsis (via Lifetime)

Against her better judgment, a recently-divorced mother allows her troubled daughter to attend prom, but what was supposed to be the best night of their lives, turns into a twisted game of cat-and-mouse as the daughter and her friends are taken hostage by their limousine driver, who has a sinister connection to her family. Starring Zoë Belkin, Micah Sanders-Silva, Karen Cliche, Melissa Bray, Scott Gibson (2023).

Recap/Wine Thoughts

The movie starts off at a party, and Kimber is ready to leave. She orders a ride share and turns down a ride from a cute jock named Luke. Her BFF, Everleigh, wants to stay and calls her friend a buzzkill. Kimber leaves anyway and gets into the wrong car. The Driver tries to kidnap her, but Kimber rolls out of the car and screams for help.

Four weeks later, Kimber has recovered and has a signed cast! She helps out at her dad’s office while going to school and has put the whole rideshare thing behind her. Kimber DOES cheat on a test which has her principal/mother worried. Kimber blames her parent’s divorce for her bad attitude. 

A kid named Austin seems very presumptuous and asks principal Mom to take her daughter to Prom. (He even prom-posals, which can’t still be a thing, right?) A former BFF of Kimber’s named Joan helped Austin pick out the flowers. (Everleigh is annoyed.) Kimber feels bad for Joan and invites her to go to Prom with her and her friends.

Principal Mom calls her ex-husband Paul to let him know she is letting Kimber go to Prom with Austin. Both parents worry about their daughter ever since the attempted abduction. (Principal Mom tracks her daughter’s phone with an app.)

It is prom night! (Which surprised me, I thought we wouldn’t get to the Prom till the end!) Everyone gets dressed up, and they are excited to ride in the limo Austin booked for them. The Driver go through the rules, and everyone jumps in for a fun night.

Everleigh is trying to get DRUNK and harasses the Driver. Austin tells them he has another plan and drives everyone to a park for a pre-party. Joan is left out and ruthlessly made fun of by Everleigh. While the teens party, The Driver films them. He sees them drinking and threatens to take them home. When they ask him to be cool, The Driver says he won’t tell if they give him their cellphones for the rest of the ride to Prom. 

The teens reluctantly agree, but they keep drinking in the limo. (Everyone except Joan, she has a butterfly purse!) As they pull out of the parking lot, The Driver places the cell phones under the limo tire and runs them over. 

Principal Mom starts to worry when her daughter doesn’t show up to Prom by 8 pm. 

Eventually, Kimber realizes they are going the wrong way and screams at The Driver. The doors to the limo are locked and can’t be opened from the inside. The teens call for help, but The Driver ignores them and watches them on a hidden camera. 

Paul is working late and gets a text with the video of the partying teens. 

Austin promises to keep everyone safe, but he is pretty useless. Everleigh’s boyfriend, Luke, comes through and tries to McGiver the door open. They try to escape when the car stops, but The Driver opens the door, tases Austin, and forces Joan and Kimber to break into her dad’s office safe to steal a flash drive.

Meanwhile, Everleigh and her boyfriend try to open the door. Austin actually sabotages them and is looking shadier every second. 

Kimber gets the drive from the safe and leaves an SOS not for her dad. When Joan and Kimber return to the limo, Joan tries to take the taser, and in the struggle, Luke jumps out of the limo to stop The Driver. The Driver tabs Luke and kills him. 

The teens are still locked in the limo while The Driver uploads the information from the flash drive. Everleigh explains that the flash drive wasn’t a flash drive. It’s a CRYPTO WALLETT!!!! (Learning something new!)

Paul and the Principal’s Mom track Kimber’s phone and find the pile of crushed phones. They go to the office, and Paul checks the security cameras; he realizes all his money is gone. Paul has been aggressively investing his money because he has prostate cancer. 

The stress starts to get to Joan, and she needs her inhaler. The Driver rolls down his window to pass the inhaler, and Everleigh tries to grab the crypto wallet. A tug of war happens with Everleigh’s ponytail. (It’s WILD!)

The limo stops, and Austin jumps out to stop The Driver. The Driver chokes him out and throws Austin in the front seat just as the police pull up. The girls try to signal for help and get the police officer killed. 

The Driver takes the limo to a garage and straps Kimber to a comfy-looking chair. Austin emerges from behind the car and reveals that he is The Driver’s bother. They are working together to get revenge on Kimber’s dad. Austin Facetimes Kimber’s parents and shows a tattoo on their arm, “Grace.”  

Grace Adams is a woman that Paul had an affair, and then she died. Austin and The Driver were her sons and they want the money that could have saved their mother. It’s millions of dollars that Kimber and Principal Mom didn’t know about. 

Paul gives them the code, and the police trace the call. 

Kimber unstraps herself and fills the other girls in on what is happening. The Driver returns to the garage, unstraps Kimber, and asks her to slow dance with him. While they dance, Everleigh and Joan make amends and realize they must help their friend. They attack just as The Driver tells Kimber his real name, Emerson. 

Kimber beats Emerson with a tire iron and drives the limo out of the garage. Austin stops the car with a spare key. Just as Austin is about to attack the girls, Principal Mom and Paul run Austin over with their car. 

The police arrive on the scene, and everyone just goes home. The end! 

Side Note

Shawna, Everleigh, Kimber, what are these names? 

Minority Report: Teacher, Everleigh,

For a prom movie, I thought this was entertaining enough! Even if we never actually made it to prom.
