Not terrible, but this MTV teen movie falls flat.

Reel Film Reviews

Squarely aimed at teens with little regard for anyone else...

Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)

The work of a filmmaker and team of writers so conscious of their own formulaic crutch that they demand a production that feels like more than the sum of its parts.

Local Planet Weekly (Spokane, WA)

The Perfect Score is amenable, enjoyable and as quickly forgotten as all those tricks you learned in your SAT prep class.

What could, and should, have been as fun and daring as skipping school turns out to be as dull as a two-hour detention.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

The filmmakers need to re-watch "Ocean's Eleven" study up, and remind themselves of this important fact: Even teenagers want a movie that makes them think.

Apollo Guide

Is it a heist movie? A teen coming of age flick? A high school comedy? A morality play? It's sort of all of those, but really none of them, as it doesn't quite hit the mark.

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

As a teen movie, "The Perfect Score" is just passable.

Were it not for the recent "Arrival" of one Scarlett Johansson, The Perfect Score would still be holding down a shelf in the Paramount Pictures - Do Not Release office.

... Tries in vain to be both The Breakfast Club and Ocean's Eleven.

Ocean's Eleven goes to high school and flunks out in a dumbed-down caper film.

In the end, everyone learns to do the "right" thing and, essentially, fulfills his or her standardized role in society.

An even more lame-brained sitcom than that in which director Brian Robbins starred many eons ago.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Somewhere around the 20-minute mark, I was convinced that the title was a typo, and they really meant The Perfect Snore.

Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

The characters are united in an ability to be more boring than anybody who went to high school in the real world.

Unfortunately, here's the new math: Promising premise + pretty good heist plan = One Bad Movie.

Sacramento News & Review

The script ... is chock full of callow teenybopper deep-think about how unfair the SAT is, but it's more interesting for the different ways the students justify their foray into high-tech burglary, and for the way they pull off the heist.

Why must MTV stiffle the real talents of Brian Robbins?
