Trivia

The film's writer, Stephen Tolkin, worked with Lori Loughlin (who was involved in the real-life college admissions bribery scandal on which the movie is based) in the 2004-05 WB drama "Summerland". Loughlin, who co-created the series with Tolkin and starred as its co-lead (opposite singer Jesse McCartney), and husband Massimo Gianulli were both charged by the FBI and the U.S. Attorney's office in March 2019 for using a $500,000 donation to the Key Worldwide Foundation to persuade the University of Southern California into accepting their two daughters on women's rowing scholarships, despite neither of them having had any experience in the sport.

Passing Grade, but like a C passing.
13 October 2019 | by LifetimeUncorkedPodcastSee all my reviews

This movie found a nice balance of creating horrible unlikeable characters. (based on real people, but NOT Lori Loughlin, Felicity Huffman, or anyone alive or dead... for legal reasons.) while still having the characters be ones you love to hate.

I added an extra star for Emma's hunky boyfriend, Brian!
