    It amazing that a cast and writing crew that clearly didn?t make the grade in elementary school could even spell SAT, yet alone a movie about it.

    This is a surpisingly entertaining film. The critics have not appreciated the fine performances and the anxiety that permeates this life experience (taking the SAT). Like the advisor who states that the bar was designed by a graduate of the local community college, the life experience of a movie reviewer is not up to the level required to address this film.

    Its another Teen movie. Some characters were well done. Good sountrack. I found it boring, it became predictable, but not pleasently predictible, and it lacked chracter development.

    Wow, another movie by mtv that helped create our new dictionary word, "Teensploitation."

    Okay, it's not breakfast club, and maybe the soundtrack tries a little too hard to be Ocean's 11, but it was a good movie, held my attention, and did an excellent job -far better than most teen movies - of capturing a realistic cross-section of teenagers.

    A fun movie. Good for nothing, however, but a few laughs.

    Great combination of two movies in one: The Breakfast Club and Ocean 11. Everyone is great and the high Asian guy is hilarious.

    The Perfect Score is one of the worst heist movies of all time. The fact that its trying to be a comedy at the same time makes it even worse. The story follows Kyle (Chris Evans) and his friend Matty (Bryan Greenberg) as they try to steal a copy of the SATs with the help of a ragtag group of other slackers with the likes of Scarlett Johansson and Erika Christiansen joining the effort.

The story follows Kyle (Chris Evans) and his friend Matty (Bryan Greenberg) as they try to steal a copy of the SATs with the help of a ragtag group of other slackers with the likes of Scarlett Johansson and Erika Christiansen joining the effort. Sure its a snappy premise that could provide some decent laughs and light hearted enjoyment. However the script is terrible and there is absolutely no conflict in the film. It seems like this 'dangerous' heist is just a late night revision party, which is pretty much what it ends up being. It has no imagination, some incredibly poor performances (Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson) and it just feels like no effort went into the writing at all. It's not empty of merit with at least a decent performance from Erika Christiansen who is always reliable but it comes pretty close. Expand

    "X is to Y, as this shit is to boring."
  2. The heist itself is quite nicely filmed herein, but unfortunately, getting to it requires sitting through a bunch of noisy, fussy crap, from the overly busy soundtrack to the irritating narration of stoned guy Leonardo Nam.
  3. The movie, which strains to be hip in a faux-1985 beat-the-system way, takes such a light view of cheating that it has the ironic effect of rendering the heist that follows utterly innocuous.
