A Brief Plot of movie The Perfect Score

Since SAT is standing in their way, they both decide to ace the SATs by hook or by crook. They approach Franceska(Scarlet Johansen) whose father owns the building that houses the regional office of ETS, where the SAT papers are located. They decide to steal those papers, which at first is denied by Franceska, but due to her bad relation with father, she wants to do it and also thinks that it would be fun. Kyle becomes attracted to Anna Ross(Erika Christensen), who was college’s 2nd ranked student. He tells her about the plan as she had bombed the previous SAT exam and needed a good score to get into brown university. This was disliked by Matty, and discuss about it in the restroom where stoner Roy (Leonard Nam) is present unknowingly. He is also included in the heist. Likewise, Anna happens to help Desmond Rhodes( Darius Miles) and also brings him in the heist team.
At first, they get into the office but happens to ruin the SAT papers as they shred it instead of photocopying it. Later on, they come with a big heist plan and get into the office to steal the papers like professionals. During the heist, all the members of the heist get to know each other even better. Being unable to get the papers, they decide to come back with the answers from the paper in the mainframe. They stay up till hours solving the questions and copying down answers.

Similarly, Matty who ends up in jail is bailed by Franceska. They end up being together. Darius also solves his matters with his mom about how he wants to become a professional NBA player and not just go to some top rated university. The movie ends with Roy completing the narration about the story.
My Review and Perception of the movie
Director Brian Robbins is well known for his sitcom styled movies. This movie as well presents a similar theme, an episode of friends who help each other out on a heist to pass their test. The movie is a good presentation, and has inspired as well as given students a lot of motivation for life rather than just education.
The movie is Scarlet Johannson’s debut movie. She has played a brilliant role of a daughter whose mother and father separated and whose father doesn’t treat her like a father. She also plays an intelligent and dark character in the movie, who eventually falls in love with her friend. Chris Evans has also presented a good role, a kid whose aim in future is bright but is blocked by some stupid test. Likewise, Erika has also acted well being a girl who wants to break free instead of just study and have a career like other people.
The movie has a very good storyline. The movie is inspirational, and it helps people to be knowledged about life events, exams, and how they affect their lives.
My Rating of the movie
The movie deserves a better of 3.5 out of 5 star.
