I was quite surprised that once the initial premise had been established and the relationships formed that the film actually managed to provide a really nice mix of action, adventure and heart. For what could have been a rather superfluous, American teenage flick The Perfect Score actually tackles some interesting topics of friendship and relationships which did put me in mind of the John Hughes classic 80's film - The Breakfast Club. Funnily enough during some of the dialogue the characters share with one another do reference the John Hughes film and they liken their predicament to that of the characters who featured in it so I do think that a lot of inspiration was taken and maybe this was an attempt at updating the ideas originally used back then.

The central premise remains the same, a group of people who know of one another but who aren't friends are forced by circumstances to join together as a team. They each have their own reasons for wanting the answer sheet to the test paper and as the film progresses we learn what they are. The instigator and lead character of Kyle played by Chris Evans forms much of the early focus of the film as we are introduced to him and discover what his intentions are. Although he knows it's the wrong thing to do and he realises what the consequences would be if he was to be caught Kyle is not a bad person, Evans plays him well, we understand his motivations and reasons and I would presume that the intended target audience for the film would understand and identify with the predicament he finds himself in.

The Perfect Score was once described as 'a college version of Oceans 11' and I think thats just about spot on.

The film hits the ground running with a good musical score and never seems to drop into a 15 minute 'lull'where you start to think about turning the film off. So many films drift off and therefore make you drift off too.

Its simple without patronising you. Entertaining. Better than the over-rated American Pie/Road Trip bore-fests. Yes, a little predictable but we all love to be right when it comes to guessing the ending beforehand.

I would watch this DVD again, and have lent it to friends who enjoyed it too.

This movie is justifiably a 5 out of 5 score. Basically, the characters are diverse and hilarious, the plot is original, the music is fantastic, and the overall feeling is very very good.
Recommended.
