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

Not too bad...
17 July 2003 | by (Kansas City, MO) – See all my reviews

I was at a hotel, flipping through the channels when I landed on this. I thought at first it was that new movie, "Cheaters", but low and behold, it was something even better. This movie was so funny, I especially liked all of the ways they came up to cheat with. I showed the movie to one of my teachers, and even they thought the "Song" idea of cheating was rather genius! This movie was Grade A, and I recommend it to anyone.
