Easy A Reviews

September 16, 2010
Easy A not only makes the grade, but it comes in close to 100%.
September 16, 2010
Like the movie she's in, Olive is smart, sarcastic, and never snarky.
September 16, 2010
Until it spins manically out of control in the last act, Easy A is a charmer: a high school satire with a lethally sharp script and a big, smart, adorable star performance from Emma Stone.
September 16, 2010
Easy A has two strong elements in its favor: heart, and Stone's terrific lead performance.
September 16, 2010
Olive is a kind of modern day Ferris Bueller. She has it pretty close to all figured out, and she even gets her own big, gratuitous musical number. It's a terrifically deadpan, lively performance from Stone.
September 16, 2010
Director Will Gluck shows wicked comic timing and uncommon warmth in an overworked genre.
September 16, 2010
It has at least one thing going for it: an excellent performance from Emma Stone (Superbad) as the statuesque, sardonic Olive, a conscientious high-school senior who is, she assures us, an anonymous figure among her classmates.
September 16, 2010
The jokes are hit-and-miss. But Stone is one sassy babe and a breakout star who nails every zinger and brings genuine warmth to her scenes with her parents.
September 16, 2010
Not every moment of Easy A earns a passing grade, but what works in this edgy teen comedy works spectacularly well.
September 16, 2010
It's a funny, engaging comedy that takes the familiar but underrated Emma Stone and makes her, I believe, a star.
September 15, 2010
This is the kind of movie about teenagers that an adult audience should embrace. It's simply that good, and Stone is nothing short of wonderful.
September 15, 2010
If Lindsay Lohan never makes it back to leading-lady status, then we can all comfort ourselves with the knowledge that we have Emma Stone.
September 15, 2010
The ghost of John Hughes smiles upon Easy A, a film that freely and giddily borrows from and pays tribute to Hughes' famous Holy Trinity of '80s teen angst comedies.
September 15, 2010
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.
September 15, 2010
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.
September 14, 2010
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."
September 14, 2010
The final mark? Well, give this proud A a solid B. It's definitely a Diablo Codyesque cut above the norm - the wit can sometimes feel contrived but at least there's wit to be found.
September 13, 2010
The movie belongs to Stone, that gorgeous, husky-voiced redhead. When most actors deliver nonstop patter, their mouths get ahead of their minds, but Stone's brain works so fast that her mouth can barely keep up.
September 10, 2010
Is Olive practicing prostitution? Hair-splitters would say so, but hair-splitters likely won't be seeing Easy A, with its silliness, over-the-topitude and fabulous leading lady, who caps her fresh, charming performance with a musical number at the end.
