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.

Grading on the admittedly weak January curve, it squeaks by with a pass.

Succeeds because at its core it is about the very different pressures very different young adults face, and the test that insists on judging them as one and the same.
