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.

An extremely witty, inventive, sweet and perceptive coming-out party for Emma Stone.

Omigod, the high school film is not dead. Text it high and text it low, for it has risen from the ashes with this clever, thoughtful and funny parable.
September 17, 2010
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.

Enhanced by a wicked sense of humor, Will Gluck's movie does what Hughes did best, showcasing characters with personality who make you wish you had them on speed dial.
September 17, 2010
Stone shows great self-assurance and considerable comic chops in a tour-de-force that that could have seemed smarmy and/or silly in lesser hands.

It catapults Emma Stone into a higher place reserved for American actors who can handle elevated language with casually dazzling aplomb.

It makes with the clever dialogue and it does present a world where a young woman takes charge and triumphs over peer pressure, but the filmmakers were either too lazy or inept to find a way to be hip and competent at the same time.
September 17, 2010
Whatever else it accomplishes, the sassy high school comedy Easy A commands attention for the irresistible presence of Emma Stone, playing a good girl who pretends to be bad.
September 17, 2010
The material is elevated by the delightful Emma Stone, spinning comedy out of likability alone.

Given the luminaries ... dotting the cast, this ought to be some kind of fun, but it's not nearly as much fun as it might have been

A thoroughly delightful surprise, after a summer full of dim and dreary comedies.

Though the talented Stone shows off some sharp comic timing, it's hard to accept this smart, gorgeous young woman as a school misfit yearning for popularity...
September 16, 2010
An often hilarious and observant comedy about high school from the point of view of an extraordinarily smart and sagacious young woman.
September 16, 2010
Will Gluck's high school comedy combines the soul of John Hughes with the arch sass of Diablo Cody, and delivers something delightfully new in the process.
