What a sweet story.
I loved how Tommy was so nice to Carrie, and how in the end she got to be prom queen.
It shows how there's something to appreciate in everyone, and how, with a lot of courage, and a little support, even a so-called 'ugly duckling' can find great friendships and be accepted for who they are.
It may not be representative of De Palma's ouvre, but it's nice to see him step out of his comfort zone for once, and make a nice uplifting teen-drama in the vein of John Hughes.

P.S. I had to leave early, can anyone tell me what happened in the last 10 minutes?
