it's not a serious film!By a customer , 14 Jan 2013This film won't change your life; but it will while away a good 90 minutes of it without causing any unnecessary pain. The film is a fun, well-meaning, light-hearted piece that should be taken for what it is, and who it's aimed at!
Coming of age tean movieBy CurlyStorm (15 reviews) , 13 Nov 2011I like the way the movie gelled together. Just another good teen movie.Chris Evans is a great lead. Ending is brilliant.
A bit weakBy gianino (648 reviews) from London , 11 Jun 2010Not bad but not good either. It's really weak not particularly funny but well acted. An average teen comedy with actors that are not exactly teens anymore but that's not unusual in Hollywood. Chris Evans is as hot as ever so he is the best bit :)
DecentBy a customer from birmingham , 14 Aug 2009There's lots of clichés and stereotypes to endure when watching a high school movie. For the most of it, The Perfect Score manages to avoid most of these clichés though the characters are a bit stereotypical. There's the brainy kid, the rebel, the stoner, the loser, the jock and the good guy. Hardly a breathtaking assortment of originals eh?
But their plan to steal the SAT scores and their interaction together are what make this movie worthwhile. The unimaginative marketing for this movie claims it to be Ocean's 11 meets The Breakfast Club. But the actors are carrying the movie, doing the best they can with weak material, rather than the 'wild' premise.
I especially liked Roy, the stoner and narrator as he got the most back story and had more a character arc than the rest of them. And it was pleasant to have the lovely, oh-so-cute Erika Christensen though I'm not too fussed about Scarlett Johansen (she looks like a teenage version of my mother!). A non-Shaggy, but still manic, Matthew Lillard has a small role as a concerned big brother.
You'll not remember it 5 minutes after the credits role but for a non-threatening, easy-going movie The Perfect Score fits nicely. You could do a helluva lot worse. And what else do you expect from an MTV movie?
The DVD is in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen with lackluster Dolby 5.1, though to be fair it mostly a dialogue-driven movie. There are a bunch of fluff features for those who care.
didnt score wiv meBy Araluen (5 reviews) from Lancaster , 21 Feb 2009wasnt quite sure if this film was meant 2b a comedy, it had its moments when it really tried 2b but couldnt pull it off, wasnt quite a drama either.was abit slow and was trying 2 send a message, it was a case of at the end 'and the moral of this story was....' which was abit obvious anyway
