Six teenagers from diverse backgrounds - among them the school's star basketball player - conspire to break into a SAT testing center to steal the answers in hope of acing their exam. They ultimately realize that the answer to their problems and the key to their happiness may not lie in achieving a perfect score. Written by
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 »

Those expecting cinematic events like the Godfather or Saving Private Ryan.

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.
