Easy A

Easy A is a coming of age comedy that stars Emmma Stone as Olive Penderghast; a run of the mill high school girl who gets thrust into infamy by rumors of promiscuity. I have to admit, going into the movie, the only thing that seemed appealing to me was Emma Stone, who's cute but awkward type casting makes her a little like this generation's Drew Berrymore.

To me, the heartfelt flick plays a lot like a modern interpretation of 16 candles with pop heavy, but enjoyable soundtrack. The plot is pretty typical for the genre. It's a narrative walk through the significant points of the movie, concluding in a very nicely tied together ending. I really want to delve into what I enjoyed about the characters, but meh... I'm afraid I'll give away too much! Go see the movie!

Below is an official featurette about Easy A which summarizes the movie from the point of view of several actors in the film. I'd have to say the video's a little spoiler heavy, so if spoilers upset you, don't watch it.

In the end, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the film. It's witty, sarcastic, and funny. If you enjoyed movies like Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, you'll really enjoy this film.

I give this movie 4 sheep.


  1. Sweet! Can't wait to see it. Nice job :)

  2. I really really want to see this. It had me from the moment the "good" girl told her she would be judged by a higher power and she said Tom Cruise.

  3. Yeah the movie is extremely quotable. :) I'd say this movie is even twiceable!

  4. This looks so good! I'm putting it higher on my Netflix queue.

  5. K. Saw it. Laughed so hard over the dad's comments. "Who told you?!" Classic. Great review.
