Review:  “The SAT isn’t about who you are. It’s about who you’ll be,” says the lead character in “The Perfect Score,” Paramount’s latest film about a group of high school seniors who plot to steal the answers for a perfect 1600 on the SAT. Does it work? The answer depends on your perspective.

Kyle (Chris Evans, “Not Another Teen Movie”) dreams of attending Cornell and getting a degree in architecture. The problem is, even his amazing 1430 SAT score isn’t enough to assure him a place at the prestigious university. Matty (Bryan Greenberg, TV’s “One Tree Hill”), his best friend, is a plumber’s son who just wants to go to the University of Maryland – fast, because his girlfriend is already there, cheating on him. Erika Christensen (“Traffic”) plays Anna, the would-be class valedictorian desperately trying to live up to her parent’s sky-high expectations.

Basketball star Desmond (Darius Miles, a real life NBA player for the Cleveland Cavaliers) just needs to score 900 for St. John’s, his first choice among many scholarship offers. Given that his free time has been spent on the court, however, that seems highly unlikely. Fortunately, with the help of the high school techie, Francesca (Scarlett Johansson, “Girl with a Pearl Earring”), whose father owns the building where the scores are kept, Kyle’s plan to break in may just work. After adding the class stoner, Roy (Leonardo Nam), to the gang, when he overhears their plans, they’re set to go. SAT perfection awaits.
