The rumors of my promiscuity have been greatly exaggerated.

User Review

Easy A is Easy to Love….

Rating: 9/10

Lately the genre of teen comedies skew to the ribald and the are more
sex romps than tell stories and introduce characters that you can not
only root for but like. "Easy A" is a welcomed throwback to earlier
teen comedies: risqué, but heartfelt.

In Emma Stone you have a Molly Ringwald for a new generation:
relate-able, sexy, funny, sarcastic and lovely shines as Olive, a girl
who leads her best friend (Aly Michalka) to believe she wasn't a
virgin. The rumor spreads about her fabled loose ways and spurs
different reactions from the school population: Brandon (Dan Byrd)
wants to use it to his advantage, Marianne (Amanda Bynes) the school's
self-appointed religious leader wants to shame Olive and Olive decides
to run with it for her own gains.

There are many pluses with this film: A cast of young actors who are
true actors who can convey the humor and uphold the tone of the film; a
truly funny, vibrant script by Bert V. Royal in which not only the
teens get to be smart and fully fleshed out characters but the adults
(Patricia Clarkson and Stanley Tucci as Olive's wry and whimsical
parents are a joy; and Thomas Haden Church whose character is a new
spin on the "hip teacher".) as well.

With Stone as the lead and the only face in the promotional poster
people may think this is a "chick flick" but this film is for anyone
who just likes a good film.
