Charm and interesting characters can go a long way in making adults appreciate a teen movie. On this score THE PERFECT SCORE rates--if not perfect--pretty darn high. This ensemble film about a group of high-schoolers intent on stealing the answers to the SAT is much more fun that you might expect. It gets better as it goes along (often the reverse is true), and it has an unusual amount of honest and surprising moments, as well as some quietly pungent dialog that seldom gets heavy-handed or sentimental. Along the way, the film makes some interesting points about standardized tests vs non-standardized students, and its handling of the "morality" of stealing is a bit more nuanced than you'll find in most teen flicks. The cast is excellent, with Scarlett Johansson again proving how talented and versatile she can be. Newcomer Leonardo Nam is a delight: goofy, funny and wry. His line about why the SAT questions are easy is swift and priceless. Go ahead: add this one to your queue.
