Sep 21, 2010 - Jennavive. on Easy A
Modern 80's Genius

The film was a perfect recreated teenie bopper twist on the retro John Hughes movies of the 80's, including the perfect soundtrack to tie in the the decades of humor. It makes me wonder what J. Hughes or M. Ringwald thought of this film.

Olive played by Emma stone was perfect, she has the goofy honor of modern Ringwald with her own sass, she performed the arts and flaws of the perfect high school liar, it felt like she was just slight over blemishing herself which makes any good actress worth watching. The play off of the the Scarlet letter was rather befitting and represented perfectly though the harshness of high school.

From Amanda Bynes playing the rather crazy religious Marianne who wants to save Olive from herself, to the school mascot who would have been her first kiss. Olive's kookie yet amazing parents played by Stanley Tucci & Patricia Clarkson the film reminded us all what we felt in high school, the tough reality that what we want most may be in front of us but we would first have to find the harder path though overly dramatic teachers, one liners and mistakes to truly see what we need.

Sep 20, 2010 - scheme on Easy A
Emma Stone's charm makes up for an otherwise forgettable movie.

"Easy A" has some holes here and there, and some lulls in the film, but the witty dialogue and fantastic supporting actors (especially the two who play Olive's parents) make the film well worth a watch. Above and beyond all of that, however, is the work put in by Emma Stone. This film felt much like "Juno," in that it's unlikely I would have liked it anywhere near as much had the main actress not been just as charming as she was. This was Emma Stone's first time being the protagonist of a film, and it's probably going to be her breakout role (as "Juno" was for Ellen Page). She owned it and was entirely captivating on screen, and I can't wait to see what she can do in the future.
