Stone is a delight, Stanley Tucci is scene-stealing as her wise-cracking father, and there are some fantastic one-liners. But the overall plot is a mess of tired clichés, stupid characters and confused messages about sexuality and acceptance.
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.
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.
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."
