This is the best high-school comedy since Mean Girls.
| Original Score: 4/5
From its droll opening voiceover Will Gluck's film has us in the palm of its hand, rooting for an unconventional heroine who finds the silver lining in a huge, dark cloud over a pivotal year at high school.
A sparkling moral tale about a small lie that ramifies out of control.
Emma Stone could make a four-hour reading of her high school yearbook entertaining ... She's this generation's next best hope for a lovable comic lead actress.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Easy A is easily the most entertaining high school comedy since 1999's Ten Things I Hate About You, and the first great teen movie of the 21st century.
| Original Score: 5/5
A strong idea that wanders out of focus in the second half. But it never falls apart thanks to Stone, making excellent on her early promise. Power to her.
| Original Score: 3/5
The script shrewdly boosts its IQ by working in parallels to Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter and piling on 80s teen movie references.
True, the plot almost overreaches itself, but it's still enormously funny and has surprising cross-generational appeal.
Smarter than your average teen comedy, this snappy movie knows how to keeps us laughing.
The film's funniest moment comes courtesy of Tucci; the writers making swift but brilliant use of adoption humour.
Arguably the best teen comedy since Clueless, it's easy to give this one an A. Well, A-.
Stone gives a terrific performance, her knowing drawl implying intellect and indifference with underlying warmth.
Enjoyable, frequently funny teen comedy with a witty script, great characters and an utterly charming central performance from Emma Stone.
The film goes for character-based comedy rather than spiky one-liners, so it's the cast's warmth that cements it as a five-star movie.
In what universe does a supposedly unremarkable 17 year old high school student gain the attention of her entire school by losing her virginity?
It's a kind of an indirect love letter...love postcard...love fax...to the teen films of the 80s.
It?s easy to love "Easy A," a funny and sweet updating of the high-school comedy genre ? as if Diablo Cody wrote a John Hughes movie.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
As the title implies, 'Easy A' is a movie made by some smart people.
... a delight from top to bottom.
Entertaining yet uneven...
