Plot Summary
High school senior Marlon Bowne (Corey Parker) is smitten with overachieving classmate Jessica Kailo (Lara Flynn Boyle). But, if he wants to have a shot with her, he'll have to find a way to get into Ramsey College, Jessica's top choice of schools. It won't be easy, since the college is highly selective and Marlon's grades are hardly impressive. That means the lovelorn teen will have to find a way to score high on the SATs and win over the college admissions committee.
