Product Description

A group of teenagers cheat their way through high school.

Amazon.com

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

I first saw this movie back in highschool (2002-2006 sometime) and I LOVED IT. I thought it was so funny and whenever I tried to ask someone if they had seen it they never knew about it. It was so disappointing. When I found it on Amazon I lost my mind for a second and then quickly purchased. So excited to have this as part of our movie collection!

DVD came brand new, no damage to the case or anything.

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.

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...

I remember when this came out i thought it was really funny but like 14 years later i came across it and thought why not? The movie is still good but just not too much to make you break out laughing.But the story is these 4 buddies are pro cheaters and they have the whole school paying them for answers.They have a scheme going on between em and they take a teachers grade book,then piss on it and then their teacher cancels their senior trip. The crib master and the muscle have back and forth issues with each other but Martin Star(Applebee the cribmaster) goes in and confesses that his buddy did the wrong.So the head of the thing and his buddy the muscle have to go do summerschool. It's okay but not what i once thought was humor is just just not that funny.But it's okay.

I'm really not sure why this movie isn't more well known. Cheats is a ridiculously funny film based on a true story, and it has some really perfect moments. It's not a really 'feel-good' ending (it's vaguely "Stand By Me"-ish, inasmuch as a high-school comedy can be compared to a Stephen King story). My copy arrived quickly and in excellent shape.

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.

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.

I bought this because the story line sounded intriguing and it had Joey Lawrence in the cast. Everybody has different reasons for watching a movie and you may love this for the subject matter. I just expected better acting and role/story development from the cast and movie description.
