I remember watching this quite a few years ago and enjoying it and decided to re-watch it again to see if I still did.
It's an interesting idea and one that is executed very well. The plot is easy to follow and the fast paced script keeps things moving along nicely. There is plenty of suspense as the student plot to get higher grades spins out of control. The acting is mainly just passable apart from the always excellent Matthew Lillard who always plays the slightly maniacal jerk role so brilliantly and and there is an early appearance for the gorgeous Keri Russell.
There is a great twist ending which along with Lillard's performance elevates this film above average for it's genre.
This is not a great film by any means but it is very entertaining and well worth watching if you're at a loose end.
