The Curve is a Hollywood thriller movie released in 1998, starring Matthew Lillard, Michael Vartan, and Randall Batinkoff. The movie is directed by Dan Rosen and produced by Andrew Lazar. It follows the story of two college students, Tim (played by Lillard) and Chris (played by Vartan), who plan and execute the perfect murder of their roommate Rand (played by Batinkoff). They stage Rand's death as a suicide over a cliff, which they refer to as "the curve," but things begin to unravel when a detective starts investigating the case.

The story revolves around the three roommates, who are studying at a prestigious university. Rand is an arrogant and carefree student, who frequently makes fun of his roommates' attitudes towards academics and life in general. Tim, on the other hand, is a serious and hardworking student, who is always concerned about his grades and future prospects. Chris, who is Tim's best friend, is a laid-back and easy-going guy who loves to party and have fun.

One night, after a drinking session, Tim and Chris decide to teach Rand a lesson for his constant teasing and mockery. They hatch a plan to make him fall over "the curve," a steep cliff near their college, and make it look like a suicide. They believe that Rand's death would not only solve their problem but also help to boost their academic careers, as they can claim that Rand's tragic end had affected their grades.

However, their plan starts to unravel when Detective Bennett (played by Tamara Craig Thomas) begins investigating the case. Bennett, who is a seasoned investigator, has a hunch that Rand's death was not a suicide but a murder. She starts to piece together clues that point towards Tim and Chris's involvement in the crime.
