The Perfect Score Reviews

— Posted by Rodney

You know when you see trailers for films and you just KNOW that its going to suck? Well that’s the thought that crossed my mind when I saw the first couple of previews for The Perfect Score. Apparently I was right. As of right now it has a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 0%. I thought Erika Christensen was completely overrated in Traffic, she was terrible in Swim Fan, and yet for some reason some big movie exec thought she could carry a film like this one with no other notable talent to back her up. Don’t get me wrong… I’m not saying Erika Christensen doesn’t have any potential… she does… but she is just not ready to carry a film of her own. Here are the less than perfect scores the film is getting so far:

“Flounders about in a flux of narrative indecision and juvenile confusion.”
— Jeanne Aufmuth, PALO ALTO WEEKLY

“Hardly a perfect score. It’s not even a passing grade.”
— Michael Elliott, MOVIE PARABLES

“This undercooked high school heist movie is disfigured by flabby dialogue … unfunny pratfalls and criminally slack pacing.”
— John Patterson, L.A. WEEKLY

**My favorite one**
“Frankly, those of us for whom the SAT is a distant memory may not find it in our hearts to be all that sympathetic to a bunch of whiny kids afraid to take a test.”
— Luke Y. Thompson, NEW TIMES

"I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you."
