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.

Quotes

Victor: I don't get it, none of the girls will give their notes. It's like they all of a sudden have self-esteem.
Handsome: That's impossible.

USA's best effort ever
16 July 2004 | by (New Orleans) – See all my reviews

I caught this movie on HBO and it quickly became one of my favorites. The Handsome character is so likable and charming he can only be summed up with one phrase: "Dog porn?!?!?". Seriously though, whoever had this movie go straight to TV on USA Network has hopefully been fired. I'm glad it found new life on HBO where it can seriously be appreciated as one of the best high school movies I've ever seen. Perhaps second only to The Breakfast Club and Fast Times. If possible, I recommend taking a glance at your local rental facility to see if this title is available. It gave me a lot of ideas on how to make law school more enjoyable, but fear of the Bar committee made me think otherwise. See it soon.
