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
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 »

I'm here cuz the SAT is racist.
Well, that didn't take long, did it?
What, you don't think so? Who made the test? Rich white guys. Who scored the highest on the test?
Asian chicks. Middle-class asian girls who watch less than an hour of television a day. They can't drive, but they can kick the shit out of the SAT.

Those expecting cinematic events like the Godfather or Saving Private Ryan.
Stop reading this.
Those expecting crude teen humor films featuring underage drinking and nudity, such as Road Trip and Varsity Blues.
Stop reading this.
But those of you looking for a teen movie full of the typical adolescent hinjinx and cheap laughs.
Start reading this.
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.
