Product Description

A group of teenagers cheat their way through high school.

Four high school friends use their various skills to create a crack team of academic cheaters in Cheats: Handsome (Trevor Fehrman), the ringleader who finds a way to squirrel out of anything; Sammy (Elden Henson), his childhood cohort, who's starting to wonder if honest effort might be more rewarding than cheating; Victor (Matthew Lawrence), an up-and-coming thug with good looks; and Applebee (Martin Starr), who writes the smallest and most precise crib notes of all time. They've held it together until their senior year, when their conflicting morals create rifts that threaten their solidarity. Cheats wants to be a combination of a classic heist flick and a celebration of the outsider, like Rushmore; unfortunately, everything about the movie feels false, from its depiction of the high school hierarchy to the implausible schemes. Also featuring Mary Tyler Moore as the school principal. --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars this movie kicks some serious butt February 27, 2003
i usually hate teen movies, but i happened to catch this on [tv] last week and loved it. it has everything thats great about a comedy: very 3-d characters (like Handsome and Cribmaster, for example), a witty script, great plot, and its completely hilarious. you just cant help liking every one of the characters in some way, whether it's the completely anal principal, the "i hate everything" Victor, or, of course, the all around "nice guy" Handsome, who can pull off just about anything when he wants to. all in all, i think this movie is definitely worth watching and even buying, and i cant wait until the DVD comes out! and by the way, it actually has underlying morals etc. and the end is great. they did it PERFECTLY. anyway, this movie KICKS...

5.0 out of 5 stars How Can You Not Enjoy this Movie???? August 26, 2005
This movie is without a doubt, a hidden classic of recent years that hardly anyone has heard of. Reminds me of 80's classics like The Chocolate War and even Three O'Clock High. You can't even compare it to Ferris Bueller. Bueller stands alone. And I am not saying it is as good or better than the above mentioned films but it makes a valiant effort. I applaud the cast and crew of this film for attempting something different. The world needs another awful Ben Stiller or Owen Wilson comedy like we need another ice age.

4.0 out of 5 stars VERY FUNNY February 18, 2003
By A Customer
the editorial review has a point, but overall the movie is quite funny. all of the characters are well thought out and colorful, especially handsome. before you buy it, i would recomend renting it. because it may not be for all people.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my Favorites March 10, 2005
By Jess
This has got to be one of my favorite movies ever, I don't think I've ever laughed as hard as a I did while watching this movie. Everything in it was just so hilarious, especially the song at the end "Crippled elves do dance around a devil covered by blue dress," the things they get themselves into is great. I reccomend this movie from anyone looking to get away from those regular movies!

5.0 out of 5 stars cheats is a treasure August 28, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Can I even tell you that I did think that I would enjoy this movie but I never thought I would love it. Outstanding performances by the 4 young leads, matthew Lawrence, Trevor Fehrman, Matin Starr and Elden Henson. Also tearrific are Griffin Dunne and mary Tyler Moore as the principal who can't ever catch these guys. These guys make cheating a science and there are laughs and snags all along the way.

4.0 out of 5 stars An underground classic June 17, 2003
On the surface, Cheats may look like just another teen movie, but look more clsoely and you'll see why it's becoming a cult classic for people of all ages. The movie follows the lives of four high school students who attempt to cheat their way through high school at any cost. The leader of the pack, Handsome Davis has cheated his way through school even since Kindergarten, and now has it down to a science. The boys have a janitor's key, which makes it easy to break into any classroom and steal every exam. but what happens when the principal catches on and changes the locks? The boys are determined to pull off a huge cheat in order to show others in the school that they are still the Kings of cheating. What ensues is a brilliant, bizairre and completely hilarious romp through what these teens hope will be their final year of high school. The genius of the movie is matched in its characters. Handsome Davis, the leader of the pack, who will not back down, refuses and study and will go to any length to pass the tests he deems "unpassable" (all of them). His best friend Sammy, a fellow cheater since Kindergarten, who decides he wants to go legit, Applebee, the invaluable "kid who writes crazy small" and Victor, a particularly incendiary teen who stops at nothing (even forgoing human decency) to continue cheat will delight you with their sharp wit and sense of mischief. You can't help but feel a slight sense of envy for these boys who can get away with anything, and you'll love finding out what happens when they don't.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing February 22, 2009
It did not take to long for it to come in the mail, and the movies is one of the best high school comedy's you could ever see. Not only is it unique and not about getting laid but the movie is more accurate to the subject of cheating because the guy who wrote and directed the film was the one that cheated so its more truthful then most other movies about cheating
