Storyline

While other kids buy into countless hours of studying just so they can get a mark in some teacher's report book, Handsome Davis sees it as nothing more than a system of control over your mind. That's why Handsome and his three best friends Sammy, Victor and the cribsheet genius Applebee have banded together and found ways to cheat on their tests all through their school years. Everything had been going along smoothly until the gang entered their final year of high school and the stakes were upped by the school's principal, Mrs. Stark. If they get caught cheating again Stark will make a note in their permanent records and possibly kill their chances of getting into college. But can Handsome convince his pals to pull off one last, great cheat with him and outsmarting Stark and the system, even if it means possibly destroying their friendships? Written by Anonymous

Fun movie to watch, just don't take it seriously
25 October 2003 | by (San Antonio, Texas) – See all my reviews

The intro says its based on a true happening, if you want to believe that its your privilege. A fun movie to watch portraying the antics of high school students trying to finish their senior year, but addicted to cheating as the MO to get through. Some serious moments were okay but personality clashes as between characters Victor(Matthew Lawrence) and Applebee(Martin Starr)do not seem to fit the overall mood. The plot overall was good although somewhat predictable, with numerous subplots along the way to keep the interest up. Well worth the time to watch.
