I watched this movie because of the sports title "The Score". Then I got fooled and actually the movie is about a crime thriller story.
Why is the movie titled "The Score"?
It's a slang expression meaning the illicit gains from a robbery...which then extended to just refer to the robbery itself.
Of course, it has a number of other meanings too.
- An amount due; a debt.
- A grievance that is harbored and requires satisfaction
- A group of 20 items.
- The act of securing an advantage, especially a surprising or significant gain.
- The act or an instance of buying illicit drugs.
- A successful robbery.
- A sexual conquest.
