Imagine hating school from such a young age that the only pleasure you took from it was when you were bucking the system, or helping your buddy pass classes that he hasn't a hope in hell of getting through without assistance. 

Such is the story of Cheats and quite frankly the results are hilarious. When things get out of hard, the boys must do a number of jobs to ensure that they graduate. 

One of the first things that become apparent is that the sheer amount of effort required to cheat is more than what they would have expended in doing the right thing and studying. Staring a cast of young actors that are more or less unknowns, Cheats is a viewing experience that is a lot of fun.

Possibly to put the movie into some kind of context, it is most closely affiliated with American Pie or movies of that type. It's a bubblegum movie that you won't have to think too hard about, you can just sit back and enjoy.

Cheats is one of those movies where you don't really care too much about the transfer ratio and as long as the audio is clear, that's good enough for me. Cheats helps us on both counts with good visual and audio. 

In summary. I think that Cheats is an enjoyable film, however if you miss seeing it, chances are you won't miss or regret it. These are no extras on the disc other than a trailer which is a shame as a commentary would have been most enjoyable to listen  to by the young stars.
