It is impossible to actually steal a copy of the SAT's because there are several versions. Everyone who takes it has different questions or the questions are in a different order. See more »
The premise of the movie, that the SAT test has an answer key that is written down somewhere and can be memorized or taken, is false. In reality, each test was distinct and unique, to prevent such cracking of the code and cheating of the systems. There is not a way to control which student receives which version of the test, in order to prepare fully a reliable list of answer codes for any student or group of students. See more »

Six kids decide to steal the SAT. It stars some future Hollywood stars and an NBA player. The story is fairly bland. The dialog isn't sharp. If it wasn't for the stoner Roy (Leonardo Nam), there wouldn't be comedy at all. And I wouldn't call him a great comedian. The various attempts at jokes usually fail.
The story tries to be Breakfast Club with a caper. The style is a lower grade A-movie wannabe. The recreation of The Matrix only helps to remind the audience that this is just a copy of better movies. And there are better caper movies than this. It doesn't feel very well thought out or special. And the pretension of being the next Breakfast Club really suffers by the comparison.
The good part of the movie is the young faces. They have star power even back then especially Scarlett Johansson who plays the enigmatic Francesca Curtis. However I must admit that I am always surprised at how successful Chris Evans has become. The acting here is usually better than the material.
