The Perfect Score Reviews
Anyway the movie was kind of boring, and really cliched. Like so many cliches, no joke. I only watched it because I didn't have anything better to do.
"The S.A.T. is hard to take. It's even harder to steal."
The Perfect Score is a horrible teenage heist comedy that makes no effort to do anything original with it's characters or situations. Some of the worst performances I've ever seen done for cliche teenagers. The worst comes from Leonardo Nam as the "stoner." He talks really slow and with the surfer accent duuude. He gives his best Sean Penn impersonations and guess what; it was pretty shitty. Why Darius Miles was involved; I have no idea. It might of been because of his lack of success in the NBA, but come on. Why would you cast him? He's godawful as the "jock." You got your other cliche characters like the "brains," the "rebel," the "dumb" and the"smart, but not smart enough."
Everything about this movie annoyed the hell out of me, except Scarlett Johansson's looks. Her performance was below average, but she never disappoints. Erica Christensen was also horrible and might have given the second worst performance behind Nam. Her performance was so bad that I'm actually going to say that Darius Miles was better. He's not even a fucking actor. That's how bad Erica is. As for the story; it had potential. It could have been decent, but it never tries to be anything other than a typical bad heist movie. He doesn't seem like anyone really tried.
Good movie and I really liked it. I enjoyed it very much, it was easy to see and which guy couldn't with Scarlett Johansson glowing up the scene's with that cherry red hair and those amazing lips, wow she is so irresistible. Nice ending to a cool story with some smart and funny moments.
All-round good boy Kyle only obstacle to realizing his dream, studying architecture at Cornell, is his average SAT exam score. For best buddy Matty Matthews, getting into college is his hope to be reunited with dream girl Sandy. They realize haughty brat Francesca Curtis, owner of the Princeton building where ETS makes the SAT test, can provide them security codes so stealing the SAT results before the make-ups becomes an option. Charming Kyle talks her into it, but also enlists their senior high school near-valedictorian Anna Ross, whose Brown ambition is imposed by bossy parents. She brings along basketball dumbo Desmond Rhodes. Realizing their planning was overheard in the school toilet by marijuana addict Roy, the buddies take hum on board, ands find he's actually a natural genius without any ambition. Kyle nearly pulls off a first plan with luck, but blows it. His second plan is better, and the team improvises just enough to get the scores with one major sacrifice. But in the process, their states of mind change decisively.
Now, having said all that the movie does bring up some good talking points about how stupid standardized testing is, (which is something people who didn't do that well say) but The Perfect Score is really not a very good movie and most of all is not that funny.
