23 Reasons To Watch "The Perfect Score" If You Haven’t Already

Released a decade before Captain America was thawed out, the film follows an assortment of high school seniors who assemble with a common goal in mind: steal the answers to the SAT exam to get, you guessed it, The Perfect Score.

Since you live on this planet, it’s highly likely you’ve contributed to Marvel’s latest blockbuster opening weekend as Captain America: The Winter Soldier sits pretty on top of the box office with a $96 million domestic haul. Chris Evans reprises his role as the titular Captain of Great Abs and Scarlett Johansson aka Black Widow kicks even more ass than she did in 2012’s The Avengers. Hindsight is a glorious thing, you see, because the first time Evans and Johansson graced a screen together was a total disaster. In 2004, The Perfect Score, produced by MTV Films, earned a 17% Rotten Tomatoes score and took in $10.3 million in theaters. Okay, so, the film isn’t exactly critically-acclaimed, but you should still give it a chance because why wouldn’t you want to watch Steve Rogers and Natasha Romanoff interact in high school?
