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

i love this movie
20 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

While watching this movie i realized that it was the best 85 minutes of my life! Not only does it portray the exact idea that every teenager has in his/her mind, but they actually DO go through w/ the plans! Each character is so different that i almost wish they were my friends! This movie can be called nothing other than a flipping masterpiece! I believe that if you haven't seen this movie, then you are surely being deprived of something beautiful. I loved how they totally played Mr. Harkin (the flaming, mean teacher) and how they dissed Mrs. Herman. Not to mention how they screwed over horny and greedy! Oh man! just writing my view on this movie makes me want to go watch it again! and i believe i will! please, if you haven't had the joy of watching this movie before, i advise that you rent it, sit down with your closest friends, make some popcorn and gaze at the television! then try to contact Andrew Gurland, thanking him for giving you the chance to witness the most miraculous thing you've ever seen!

all in all - This movie is absolutely the best in the world. I beg everyone to see see and i learn from it; whether it be new techniques or not to ever cheat! In my mind it is a perfect depiction of the teenager mind in school. I think that in everyone's school there is a Victor, Handsome, Applebee, and Sammy, and quite possibly even a Shapiro! This movie is hands down perfection!
