The advertisement read “Breakfast Club meets Ocean’s Eleven.”
The Perfect Score is a simple movie. 6 high schoolers band together to steal the answers to the SAT . All have their various reasons: from getting into their choice college, to trying to impress their parents or (my favorite) “it sounds like fun”. Despite the absurd plot the movie is fun. It stars Chris Evans (pre-Fantastic Four) and Scarlett Johansson (pre-being Scarlett Johansson) as the leaders of the group.
Ocean’s Eleven it is not. But it does has its moments of action and suspense. And it does have a lot of humor. You can call it Oceans Lite if you will. Leonardo Nam plays the token “Stoner guy” and what could have just been a normal part actually ends up stealing most of the movie with this character. He has the best one liners and makes the most of his screen time. FYI former NBA lottery pick Darious Miles plays Desmond the high school superstar who needs a 900 to get into St. Johns. He made the wise choice to stick with sports. Acting is not his strong point.

Final Verdict: Not as funny as I remembered. Not worth owning.
-Matthew Lillard (shaggy of Scooby Doo) plays a minor role as the older, wiser brother. What happened to that guy?
-Director is Brian Robbins the creator of All That! and Good Burger
