Cheats

"Weak"

Cheats Review


A bunch of rotten kids cheat their way through school, despite threats from principal Mary Tyler Moore(!) over the red marks on their permanent record.

Last year's Slackers proved this was tepid comedy ground at best, and thankfully Cheats improves on the formula a tad thanks to its younger and more engaging cast. It's still the usual stuff: stealing tests, making crib sheets, bribing teachers' children, all with virtually no remorse -- stuff that was done impressively in Animal House and hasn't gone very far since. This is 2003, man! Where's the technology!?

Moore aside, you'll probably recognize the young starlets in the film, but barely. No doubt some will rise to the big time, after which Cheats will be but a mildly embarrassing footnote on their resume. Overall it's harmless, though if you question the morality of your children, you might keep this one away from them.

Aka Cheaters.

You'll rue the day!
