Goofs

In the scene where in Francesca imagines that she was Trinity from The Matrix, the reflection of the door knob shows that she was still wearing her old clothes from the previous scene and the not the tight leather clothing of Trinity. In the next shot she slowly raises her hands to her head, but the next shot shows her hands are already on her head, the follow shot shows again her hand being slowly raised. See more »

Better than expected
28 July 2004 | by (New Hartford, NY) – See all my reviews

The Perfect Score is one of those movies you would expect to be incredibly stupid. The premise is absurd: kids try to steal the answers to the SAT. However, I found myself enjoying this movie. The characters are likable and have good reason to cross the line to cheat on the SAT. I especially enjoy Erika Christenson (who I didn't recognize from her work in Traffic and Swimfam) as the girl who needs a high SAT score to get into Brown University. This movie shows the pressure that high school students have on standardized testing in general. Their grades may be good, but without a good score on this one test makes the difference in what college they can get into. I was not a fan of standardized tests in high school and I do not like them now. I think that dislike of these tests adds to the appeal the movie. I give this movie a 6/10. It is worth 90 minutes of your time.
