Like its main character, Easy A is trying too hard to seem like something it's not.

In what universe does a supposedly unremarkable 17 year old high school student gain the attention of her entire school by losing her virginity?

At least Emma Stone gets high marks in this teen comedy.

Emma Stone's secular heroine stands up to her detractors in this discriminative and cliché heavy teen comedy.

What Would Toto Watch?

Teen comedies like Easy A invoke the John Hughes canon at their own peril

Slant Magazine

All the self-awareness and saucy banter in the world can't make Easy A consistently funny, nor can the copious snark, tired '80s references, and glib Scarlet Letter parallels that define its story.

The Age (Australia)

It's a dire, poorly directed, pretentious attempt to put a Gen Y spin on The Scarlet Letter made all the worse by the casting of Stone whose character is supposed to be unpopular, despite the obvious fact that she is gorgeous.

Trespass

There's a fair whiff of Dawson's Creek Syndrome too -- teens sprouting eloquence and witticisms way beyond theirs or anyone's years and it can be a little too smug, smart and self aware.

I'd like to see Gluck and Royal actually study what John Hughes achieved during his short stint in teen cinema before they attempt to piss all over his grave a second time around.

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

Stone elevates the material to the near sublime in its best moments.

Movie Retriever

A comedy with a mega-talented lead star and wonderful supporting actors all left adrift by a script that vacillates between satire and social commentary but never forgets to remind you that its characters are oh-so-clever.

If it were not for the charming lead performance by Emma Stone anchoring this film, we would be less distracted from what a true mess it really is.

it wasn't terrible, but it wasn't nearly as good as even the mediocre films of John Hughes

The whole affair is PG-13 toothless and TV slick - I kept feeling that the movie was insisting on its own embraceability, and I resisted.

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.

Easy A tacks on a sound message about a teenage girl's right to do with her body as she wishes; the 88 preceding minutes aren't much more relevant than, as one character snarks, "a gossip girl in a sweet valley of traveling pants."

A tone-deaf attempt to transplant "The Scarlet Letter" - or at least its consideration of puritanical judgment - to a contemporary high-school setting.

You can't help but wonder why Olive doesn't just stay at home, work on her college applications and leave the sub-John Hughes melodramatics to a lesser Ringwald.
