    The Perfect Score

    Yep, it's "The Perfect Score" (2004).

    Here's a summary from Wikipedia:

    The film revolves around high school student Kyle (Chris Evans), who needs a high score on the SAT to get into his preferred architecture program at Cornell University. He constantly compares himself to his older brother Larry, who is now living above his parents' garage. Kyle's best friend Matty (Bryan Greenberg) wants to get a high score so he can go to the same college as his girlfriend, but he is an underachiever who had previously failed his PSAT. They both believe that the SAT is standing in the way of their futures.

    The two boys realize that fellow student Francesca Curtis' (Scarlett Johansson) father owns the building that houses the regional office of ETS, where the answers to the SAT are located. Francesca initially doesn't want to help but changes her mind, saying "what the hell? It sounds like fun" Meanwhile, Kyle falls in love with Anna Ross (Erika Christensen) and tells her about the plan. Matty doesn't like the fact that the second-highest-ranked student in school knows about the plan and has an outburst, right in the presence of stoner Roy (Leonardo Nam), who now wants in on the heist. And finally, Anna tells the school basketball star Desmond Rhodes (Darius Miles), who needs a score of 900 or better to join the basketball team at St. John's University after high school.

    An early attempt to break into the ETS offices fails, but the team then devises another plan. On the eve of the exams, Francesca will arrange for Kyle and Matty to have a meeting near the top floor, staying after closing. The other three will wait outside and watch the night guard until Francesca, Kyle and Matty have successfully stolen the answers. The night finally arrives.

    The first part of the plan goes well, with Francesca, Kyle and Matty successfully dodging security cameras and the night guard. However, the answers are located on a computer, and only the technical genius Roy can crack the password; he and the other two get in the building and Roy correctly guesses the password after seeing a photograph of the system user. Still, the answers can't be printed, as it requires 3 more user-names; and passwords, so they decide to take the test with their combined knowledge and get the answers. In the early hours of morning, they are finished and have all the answers written down. The night guard ascends the stairs and they try to escape; however, Francesca is left behind and is about to discovered by the guard so Matty purposefully lets the guard see him in order to save Francesca. Everyone else escapes, but each faces a certain confrontation before the exam: Kyle's brother asks him if he's really worse than a thief, Matty is bailed out by Francesca, Anna finds independence, and Desmond's mother convinces Roy to quit drugs.

    Just before the SAT testing begins, the group realizes that, although it will get them what they want, They're better off without the answers. Roy grabs the answers and distributes them among the "stoners." After the decision, Matty comments "So we did this whole thing for nothing." Kyle replies "I wouldn't say nothing," as he glances at Anna. Each person gets their desired test score without the answers: Kyle's dream of becoming an architect is still alive by attending Syracuse, Desmond ends up going to St. John's University, Matty becomes an actor, Francesca writes a novel (which is about 6 kids who conspire to steal the answers to the S.A.T.), and Anna decides to travel Europe for awhile before starting college. As for Roy, the narrator of the movie, earned the highest S.A.T. in the county, but that did not exactly offset his 0.0 G.P.A. Thus, under Desmond's mom's guidance, he gets a G.E.D. Using that, he puts his untapped intelligence to use through programming, becoming an overly successful game designer.

    adventure factor became surprising, yet somewhat too grim to be a *widespread* for me. i individually enjoyed the female With The Pearl Earring. lost In Translation became additionally great. BQ: The Fighter (little one is sooooo miserable!) BQ2: have not seen candy, yet i may well be stunned if it have been extra perfect than Requiem BQ3: i don't think of it particularly is you, i think of that action picture became only. . .zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. I observed it, and that i don't remember a damn factor.
