Easy A(2010)

A lot about this movie works, in general it is pretty funny so since it is a comedy, the mission is more then half accomplished, also it has a lot of bite as a social commentary. The treatment of this girl based on rumour and speculation is pretty true to life and has a dark overtone that is reminiscent of some of the better biting teen satires like Heathers. Where it falls down is the tacked on happy ending because this girl loves eighties John Hughes movies the whole thing eventually winds up in the same manner and it so doesn't jibe with the rest of the movies tone. Still not bad.
