Easy A (2010)

Easy A is a delightful teen comedy featuring Emma Stone. She really shows that she has the charm and the smarts to carry a movie all by herself. Easy A tells the story of a relatively unpopular high school girl who gains notoriety due to a rumor that she lost her virginity to a guy in a community college. Instead of trying to dispel the rumor, Stone embraces the attention and even adds to her new "slutty" persona by agreeing to have fake sex or give other imaginary sexual favors to desperate guys wanting to elevate their social standing in school. Seeing the parallel between her situation and that of Hester Prynne in "The Scarlet Letter", Stone sees her new social standing as a perfect chance to conduct her own personal social experiment. However, she soon learns that living a lie has many downfalls.
I thought Easy A was a very well made teen comedy and found it engaging and fun. Some may find the dialogue a bit pretentious, but i thought it was just quirky enough to be enjoyable. Go check out Easy A and see what all the rumors are about.

  1. This movies easily won my "most rewatchable" award of last year. The prize - I bought a brand new copy just for myself. So funny, and many of the lines are asides or mumbled so it takes a lot of rewatching to check them all out.

  2. I keep hearing good things about "Easy A." While I'm way out of the demographic of this kind of movie, I know that doesn't matter, so I'm going to Netflix it. Thanks for the recommendation--and you've just been LAMB-mobbed! Nice visiting; good luck with the site.

  3. I LOVE Emma Stone, especially in this movie. It's such a cleverly scripted movies for teens, I absolutely adored it.

    Oh, and, you've be LAMB-mobbed!

  4. Oh, Emma Stone, my future wife. How awesome you are.

    EASY A is easily one of my favorite films of the year, and it's in part not just because of Stone but it's rather magnificent script and direction. I mean, c'mon! How many teen comedies have two or three one shots in a single film, eh?
