Chicago Tribune

In addition to being a good-looking movie with a pumping Foo Fighters anthem, "Score" is actually a philosophical argument against our culture of tests.

You may be able to find parallels between these characters and those in "The Breakfast Club." On the other hand, you may decide life is too short.

The cast doesn't impress, the story doesn't compel and the characters are too bland to make people remember them.
