Roger Ebert Full Review
Average I thought about the film "Better Luck Tomorrow" because "The Perfect Score" considers similar material without the bite and anger and savage determination. It's too palatable. It maintains a tone of light seriousness, and it depends on the caper for too much of its entertainment value.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average ...director Brian Robbins plays a zippy 90-minute running time almost strictly for comedy, which also keeps the movie from having to resolve a sticky situation in any kind of logical way. It also helps that Johansson's nearly deadpan deliveries are looking adaptable to a variety of roles, and the Nam character's stoned demeanor gets laughs in a variety of situations.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 106 moviegoer opinions. Since this is primarily a teen movie, their opinions are what really count and fortunately they make up most of the moviegoers polled. Experience has taught me that if teens enjoy a movie they tend to give it very high opinions. The teen opinions I see here are not all that high. Don't get me wrong, they aren't too bad, but they certainly aren't as high as I'm used to seeing from teens. I still believe most teens will be satisfied with "The Perfect Score," but it's very unlikely to be a big hit.

There really aren't enough moviegoer opinions in the other age and gender groups to get an accurate indication of what they thought of this movie. What few opinions we collected are pretty mixed so they aren't really any help. The only helpful thing I noticed is that these few opinions are mostly on the low side.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
High school senior Kyle is an aspiring architect with dreams of attending an Ivy League school, but his SAT scores don't rate. He masterminds a plan to get inside the building that houses not only the answers to the exam but also the key to his future. But first he must assemble his team...

Heading Kyle's list is his best friend Matty, a less than stellar student who wants to go to the University of Maryland, the college his girlfriend attends, but so far the only thing Matty's test scores have scored him is a rejection letter. Kyle's next recruit is pretty blonde-haired Anna. She could ace the SAT and get into Brown — where her parents expect her to go -- but she's tired of always trying to live up to their expectations rather than her own. Anna brings Desmond into the fold. He's the star basketball player who's smart enough to go after an education first and then join the NBA -- but Desmond scores well on the court, not the SAT, and most colleges say he doesn't make the cut. Edgy, anti-establishment Francesca provides access to the local testing headquarters since her dad works in the building, and free-spirited Roy rounds out the group when he accidentally overhears the plan while smoking in a bathroom.
