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.

Movie Info

Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter is re-imagined as a contemporary high school comedy in this tale of a scheming student who plots to give her popularity a boost by painting herself the easiest lay in school. Like most high school kids, Olive Penderghast (Emma Stone) just wants to be popular. So much so than when her best friend, Rhiannon (Aly Michalka), asks Olive how her weekend went, the bored teen decides to whip up a spicy white lie just to make things interesting. But that minor

Stone gives a terrific performance, her knowing drawl implying intellect and indifference with underlying warmth.

As for Emma Stone, she didn't have to win me over. She conquered me from the first A.

Easy A belongs in the company of Election, Heathers, and Mean Girls -- all motion pictures that have outlived their theatrical lives because they have unique voices and use them to say something.

Any movie that quotes Mark Twain, excerpts John Hughes and employs a singeing British cussword normally unheard in PG-13 high school comedies - that's all right, too. More than all right. Easy A might not ace it, but it scores a solid B.

A gem of a turn by Emma Stone as high school student Olive Penderghast makes this tale of a girl, gossip and independence a smart and self-aware hoot in the tradition of the teen flicks of the 1980s.

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.

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.

This is the film where Stone really established herself not only as a star but as an engaging and charismatic actress

A star-making performance by Emma Stone centers this humorous look at rumor mongering and the modern high school experience.

Stone has a glittering career as a leading lady ahead of her.

A "B" for effort and "C+" for execution.

It does get by on lively energy, a creativity in its writing, and a star turn by Stone.

There's no reliance on gross out moments to sustain interest and it's genuinely funny with a lively script and a supporting cast of excellent adults.

March 12, 2011 Full Review Source: Future Movies UK

Easy A passes due to Stone's star turn and a knowing screenplay that needed a little more bravery to elevate it to a top achievement.

Emma Stone gets her best role to date in Easy A, a smart high-school comedy that recalls Clueless and 10 Things I Hate About You in its witty contemporary spin to a literary classic.

Si la película no es una pérdida de tiempo es, en primer lugar, gracias al talento cómico de Emma Stone y a una serie de referencias a la cultura pop capaces de generar empatía en el espectador.

One of the most smug and obnoxiously self-aware films I've ever seen...

With whip-smart dialog and an interesting premise, along with homages to the legendary John Hughes (who would be proud of this film), this high school sex comedy is way above average for this lowly movie genre.

Ungainly but fleet, generous and, in between quips, alert to youthful discovery

"At the screening I was at, a youngish chap slouching next to me asked his friend: 'remind me why we're watching this'. 'For the girls,' was the reply. For Emma Stone, to be precise.

The set-up is ridiculous, but the overall message about self-respect is reassuringly old-fashioned -- that it's always better for people to decide for themselves who they want to be.

Stone is so winning in a star-is-born performance that you happily sit back and enjoy.

Like an insecure teen, this is a film that has no confidence in what it really has going for it, and instead projects an unnecessary air of false bravado.

Audience Reviews for Easy A

Not satisfied with just simply ripping up pages from the classic The Scarlet letter, it also copies and pillages every good 1980's movie. Sacrilege that all walks of life can be offended by. All this and horrible characters, horrible acting, people who sound like car alarms and a narration that will make you want to pour red hot glue down your ears. Like I've said before, I have to watch a film to the very end before I review, even when said film is causing me vicious brain pain and stomach irritations. Opus dei got nothing on me.

narrating movie + smart Joke. Teen comedies should be like this.
actually half of the movie similar with my life, but I don't know how to end it.
