    This movie was surprisingly good! It's about a group of Asian-American high school students who use their straight A's and extensive extracarricular activities as a front for a sort of mini-Mafia that starts as a cheat sheet business soon develops into drug dealing and robbery. Things end up getting deeper than any of them planned on, and it gets rather disturbing. The ending is probably one of the more realistic endings I've seen in a movie of this type in a long time.

    There's a lot of irony in that Asian-Americans are always thought to be perfect children with good grades and the kids in the movie use that to their advantage.

    At times, there is some rather distracting fast-paced editing tricks which clearly show why the movie was distributed by MTV Films, but it is a really great movie.
