    This bouncy teen flick tries to be like so many others, but it seldom generates real laffs. Emma Stone pretends to have sex with loser boys and becomes known as the school's Hester Prynne (look it up). Clichés include wacky adults (with one cool one), campus cliques and an ambiguous (not really) romantic interest. Since the scenario is so obvious, the characters and dialogueThis bouncy teen flick tries to be like so many others, but it seldom generates real laffs. Emma Stone pretends to have sex with loser boys and becomes known as the school's Hester Prynne (look it up). Clichés include wacky adults (with one cool one), campus cliques and an ambiguous (not really) romantic interest. Since the scenario is so obvious, the characters and dialogue must sustain the humor. This one has an energetic spirit, but not much originality or real comedy. Expand

    The movie comes up with one interesting idea: When homosexual teenagers have a really hard time, some others mean well by telling them it will get better with time. However, everyone should be able to be happy in the moment and not only in a possible future that might still take years to come.

    It's not bad, not great, just above average chick flick. Emma Stone makes and lives this movie.

    Easy A is pretty good, but it's best when it's having fun. The acting is first class, with excellent performances by Stone, Tucci, Clarkson, and Kudrow in particular. However, there is a kind of arrogance to the film's humor, often totally missing the mark while seeming extremely self-satisfied.

    This movie is exactly what you think it is. The plot is predictable to the extreme and there are a few funny moments, but it's still quite dull. Olive is a pretty basic character, the main love interest is very typical and the school's students are all blatantly in their 20s and over the top. This is usual of these kind of films, but it got boring ages ago. This is a good enough teenThis movie is exactly what you think it is.

This is usual of these kind of films, but it got boring ages ago. This is a good enough teen romcom, but it's nothing special at all, and is obviously just a grab for cash and stardom for Emma Stone. Uninspiring, predictable and dull sums up Easy A Expand

    I really did not like this movie. The acting wasn't good, and her blond friend was just annoying. This is not how teenagers act! Completely unrealistic.

    A friend had labelled this film as on par with such teen movie gems as Clueless and Mean Girls, and from the small parts I had seen, was all set to agree with him. However, I was overall disappointed. Emma Stone is really good, she has a great sense of timing, and Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson are really excellent as her parents.

However, I was overall disappointed. Emma Stone is really good, she has a great sense of timing, and Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson are really excellent as her parents. But the film suffers because of a fairly obvious story, some pretty uninteresting parts (largely featuring Amanda Bynes, Aly Michala and Cam Gigandet), and a surprisingly boring love interest. Not quite up to being called a teen movie classic. Expand

    This movie is just alright. Emma Stone does well in it, but the plot kinda plods along and a lot of the jokes didn't really land for me. I guess it's got a good message? Except I think the same message could have been told better.

    For a breakout role, Emma Stone did a pretty darn good job, but that doesn't save the movie from the quirkness that is Amanda Bynes, whose character becomes annoying instead of threatening. Some of the humor in the movie feels really forced and unituitive, but the setup is nice and it did have some worthy laughs for a comedy about rumors.

    The story is stupid,the acting is not that good and the movie is not really funny.While Emma Stone and Thomas Haden Church were not that bad, the rest of the cast were bad.For an unknown reason,the movie was still watchable and entertaining

    Easy A may not be a great movie, but it is a knowing and enjoyable one.
  2. Gluck also directed "Fired Up!," another teen charade with lots of quick-witted verbal raunch. Easy A does a few things better.

    Screenwriter Bert V. Royal takes the oldest adolescence hook in the book - losing one's virginity- and turns it inside out.
