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

Trivia

Though filmed for theaters and having had a lot of marketing done by the studio, the film's theatrical release was canceled at the last minute and it premiered on HBO and Cinemax instead. This was New Line Cinema's only film not to be broadcast on Starz, despite their long pay-TV deal with Starz, since 1995. It wasn't until 2005, New Line moved their pay-TV deal with HBO and Cinemax.
