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 cheat sheets the kids made only had the letter answers. The SAT uses many different forms with both a different order of questions and a different order of answers. So the cheat sheets would have been useless. See more »
Well, Roy, this is our dinnertime. We don't interrupt YOUR dinnertime, do we?

Perhaps it's because when one sees, "MTV Films", in the opening credits, one's expectations then hit rock bottom. It's as if MTV lulled me into a false sense of security, knowing the usual "depth" of their projects. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this little film. It doesn't hurt that I could watch Scarlett Johansson sitting on a couch doing nothing and I'd be enthralled for hours. At any rate, I found the film, though cliched, quite cute. Roy, the obvious comic relief, played his role very effectively, I laughed at him often. The other characters were of lesser involvement, but several stereotypical demographics were adequately represented: the brain, the jock, the average joe, the stoner, the angry rich girl, and the decent good guy. It truly was as if MTV was trying to create "The Breakfast Club", twenty years later, for a new generation. If they succeeded in that is debatable, but at least the made a decent, funny flick.
