Did You Know?


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 »


ETS regulations require that math problems' answer options must go in numerical order. When the six are looking at the test on the computer, the second question goes A: 5 B: 3 C: 9 D:8 E:6. Obviously, these are not in numerical order. See more »


Matty: Did you happen to see my dad's truck in the driveway when you drove up? It's the one with the large crapper on the top of it. It doesn't say Matthew's Septic on it Kyle. It says Matthew *and Son's* Septic. If I don't get into Maryland my life is shit... literally. And its not even my own shit!

"The Perfect Score"- 8/10. Fast paced and funny.
4 February 2004 | by movies2uSee all my reviews

The Perfect Score (2004)

This movie focuses on six senior teenagers who decide to steal the SAT answers after the decision of the damage it will do on their futures. With the help of Francesca (Scarlett Johannson), whose father owns the building were the SAT answers are held, they plan a heist and try to steal the answers without getting caught.

This movie has some cheap laughs and good actors including Chris Evans (Not Another Teen Movie), Erika Christensen (Swimfan, Leave It To Beaver), and Scarlett Johannson (Ghost World, Lost In Translation). The film surprises you at the end, and it isn't what you expected at all, but it works out okay. The film starts in quick and fast and doesn't stop till the end. Roy was the funniest character in the movie, and you'll see why when you watch it. It's a great movie for teenagers, but adults probably won't enjoy it at all. 8/10.
