    In addition to being a good-looking movie with a pumping Foo Fighters anthem, "Score" is actually a philosophical argument against our culture of tests.
  2. A thin, pleasant teenage heist comedy with a chewy nugget of social criticism buried inside it.
  3. The cast doesn't impress, the story doesn't compel and the characters are too bland to make people remember them.
  4. 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.

    Comes tantalizingly close to being interesting.
  6. 33
    It's "Ocean's Eleven" for people who can't count past six.
  7. Luckily, life (just like the SAT) has its multiple-choice options. You don't actually have to watch this.

    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. 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
