Easy A

Comedy with Emma Stone (Superbad) as Olive – a big nothing at college. It all changes, however, when a white lie about losing her virginity (to help boost the reputation of her even more un-cool friend Dan) sees Olive's clean cut image get a make-over, paralleling Hester Prynne in The Scarlet Letter – a novel she's studying in school.

Other school nerds jump on the fake-sex bandwagon with Olive and she uses the rumour mill to advance her social and financial standing.

What this high school morality fable really recalls is "Clueless" -- a comedy of very contemporary ill manners drawn from classic literature, an immersion in the young-adult lexicon and a potentially career-making showcase for its lead actress, Emma Stone.

Easy A isn't nearly as good a movie as "Clueless," Ms. Heckerling's contemporary pastiche of the Jane Austen novel "Emma." But the one-liner-loaded screenplay has the same insouciant charm.

A sharp teen comedy about a girl who pretends she isn't a virgin boasts a top-notch performance from Emma Stone

It's a funny, engaging comedy that takes the familiar but underrated Emma Stone and makes her, I believe, a star.

A high school romp that turns a stale genre upside down with sly wit and sharp satire.

Arguably the best teen comedy since Clueless, it's easy to give this one an A. Well, A-.

Emma Stone is now the new it girl in hollywood this performance is similar to Ellen Page in Juno or Judy Garland in the Wizard of Oz. One of the best teen comedies in years

She's such a talented comedienne and that really shows in Easy A, one of the funniest teen comedies to come out in a long time.

Best part of this movie was Emma Stone, no question! And her brilliant on screen family. It was, admittedly, a little predictable, but was still definitely a great movie to watch with friends. Some great laughs! :)

Emma Stone is a very promising comedy actress...her role in Easy A is played with perfection - very believable. This film is very easy to watch, where it is light on original story and characters, it is heavy in comedy and John Hughe's tributes. You could certianly do much worse than this film. 6.5/10 - 3 Stars

I enjoyed this film, from the little white lie to the way it unfolded. Emma Stone was a talented tour de force, it was great. She was witty and ultimately heart warming in a way that is unheard of in teen coming of age flicks.

I really enjoyed every aspect of this film. Sure, I went into it more or less knowing exactly how it would end but I was prepared for that and so it did not bother me. The entire cast performed their roles with aplomb, particularly Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson as Emma Stone's parents. One of the best comedies of the year.

The comebacks and saying in this movie were really strange but Emma Stone made this real funny. Great movie.

I have to agree with Hadley, the acting was very 'B' grade all round, even though there some funny one liners, all in all it was a little painful to watch.

I Havn't had this much fun watching a movie in a very long time. I was a big fan of sixteen candles and all the other eighties brat pack movies. This movie had me yearning to watch it and it did all that i was expecting and than some. Great characters played by stanley tucci and patricia clarkson (as mum and dad) emma stone played a brilliant part as Olive....
