(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.

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.

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.

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.

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
Andrew Hedley

"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.

A high-school comedy that comes on both sassy and cute.

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.

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.
John Walsh

A sparkling moral tale about a small lie that ramifies out of control.
