ACT ONE:

INT. LSAT TESTING FACILITY - AFTERNOON

We open on a sign in large letters, “30 MINUTES LEFT.” As a

hand replaces “30” with “15;” REVEAL a large room filled with

college students furiously racing to finish the LSAT test.

We pan across to the one figure who seems unfazed. MIKE ROSS

(Mets hat, short-hair, glasses, goatee) has already finished

and is doodling on the back of the test.

Mike notices a PROCTOR walk by, looking at him curiously. He

quickly turns the test over and pretends to nervously work on

it. We speed up time as the “MINUTES LEFT” sign goes from

“10” to “5” to 4,3,2,1. Finally the proctor yells:

PROCTOR:

Time’s up. Pencils down.

Mike blends in with the students and tosses his test on the

pile. As he leaves, the proctor moves the pile to the side,

leaving Mike’s test on top, then he taps Mike from behind.

PROCTOR:

Excuse me. Do I know you from somewhere?

We see anxiety momentarily cross Mike’s face. He swallows,

then turns around to see the Proctor looking at him intently.

MIKE:

I don’t think so. I have a very good

memory for faces.

The Proctor shrugs, he must be wrong. Mike walks away. The

Proctor hesitates, thinks to himself, then turns to pick up

Mike’s test; the pile’s knocked over, no way to tell which is

the one he wants. He turns back; no Mike. He yells...

PROCTOR:

Hey!

He fights through a group of students to get out the door...

INT. HALLWAY OUTSIDE LSAT TEST - CONTINUOUS

Mike’s just outside the door. He breaks into a run around

the corner to a door at the end of the hall. No good, jammed

with students, he won’t have time to get through. As he runs

to his right, he trips over a GUY WEARING A METS SHIRT.

INT. LSAT TEST FACILITY/HALLWAY - CONTINUOUS

The proctor bursts through the throng of students and runs to

the door where Mike just was. He sees Mike from behind. He

grabs him, turns him around... it’s not Mike. The guy with

the Mets shirt is now wearing Mike’s Met’s cap. The proctor

looks down the hall, sees a men’s room and runs toward it.

INT. MEN’S ROOM - CONTINUOUS

Mike is in a stall. Without his Mets cap, his hair comes

down to his shoulders. He quickly removes his glasses and

the fake goatee he had on and flushes them. He exits the

stall, looking 100% different than he did seconds ago...

INT. HALLWAY OUTSIDE MEN’S ROOM - CONTINUOUS

A transformed Mike walks back down the hall with confidence.

He doesn’t break stride as the proctor runs by without even

noticing his existence. A small smile crosses his face...

INT. A SMALL APARTMENT - LATER

Mike knocks on the door of an apartment. It opens. The

YOUNG MAN looks exactly like Mike did at the LSAT’s. Short

hair, glasses, goatee. Mike returns his driver’s license.

MIKE:

Here.

YOUNG MAN:

What did you get me?

MIKE:

What I said I was going to... a 158.

YOUNG MAN:

I told you I wanted a 175.

MIKE:

And I told you only one out of hundred

people can score that. You’re a B-minus

student who got a thousand on the SAT’s.

I get you a 175 they’ll know you cheated.

YOUNG MAN:

So only a genius loser can get a 175?

MIKE:

Actually, I’d get a 180. Now, can I have

my money please?

The Young Man hands Mike a wad of cash. Mike counts it.

MIKE:

This is only half.

YOUNG MAN:

Then why don’t you go call the police?

The Young Man slams the door in Mike’s face.

EXT. MANHATTAN SKYLINE - 9:00 PM

We pan across the water to the facade of a gorgeous office

complex at the southern tip of the city. The offices in the

building are all dark. Except one. We ZOOM IN:

INT. STATE OF THE ART CONFERENCE ROOM - CONTINUOUS

Two highly paid teams of LAWYERS SCREAM across the sleekest
