Anything at all? Well, when I was a kid I used to play this video game for hours, Street Fighter 2. And I remember thinking "You know, people get paid to do this - to think of the game and create the characters."

The Perfect Score won't light up the box office or have everyone waiting day after day for its release onto DVD.
Instead, it's a movie targeted towards middle schoolers, high schoolers, and most college students.
Typically good kids under rough circumstances, most of us who have taken the SATs remember the pain in the arse they were. Throw in two very attractive, and talented acting-capable, girls...two guys and a jock...and an Asian pothead quick with one liners...
and you got a pretty solid movie.
While the Perfect Score won't give you everything you want, I feel that it will make you just happy enough that you caught the showing.
So if you're looking for a movie to sit back and relax too...and perhaps vicariously wonder if you could steal the answers to the SAT...check out the movie.
I enjoyed it, and chances are if you kept on reading this post.
You will too.
