Easy A (2010)



Critic Consensus: It owes a huge debt to older (and better) teen comedies, but Easy A proves a smart, witty showcase for its irresistibly charming star, Emma Stone.

Critic Reviews for Easy A

All Critics (179) | Top Critics (36)

(WIll Gluck) captures today's high school soul with the same resourcefulness as (John) Hughes did in Ferris Beuller's Day Off. It's not quite as endearing, but it's a helluva good start.

Film Threat

Easy A transcends the mold of teenage cautionary tales while still providing some serious laughs and genuine moments. It has a wildly fresh script that keeps you laughing throughout and Emma Stone is great in the lead role.

We Got This Covered

What we get is a surprisingly funny film that has some charm to it, which is not something you hear applied to comedies all that often.

Audience Reviews for Easy A


Emma Stone (Zombieland, Superbad) does a great job as Olive. Loved this movie reminded me of many of comedies of the 80's. The directors love of 80's high school flicks is abundantly clear and it shines through in a fun movie.
