Laura Raud’s review:
I recently rewatched "Easy A" so I thought I'd write about it.
The movie is about a high school girl named Olive Penderghast (Stone) who happens to fall victim to some rumours that get out of hand and how she deals with it (taking it to another level.)
Emma Stone is great - she's pretty, smart, sarcastic and kicks ass. She's totally entertaining and very very cool. She is the star of the movie. (Although Tucci and Clarkson play the part of the most awesome parents in the history of time)
Yes, it is a teen movie, but it's one of the best I've seen. (except maybe the John Hughes ones) I mean, it is a high school movie and has all these high school clichéd characters and problems and all that, but what makes it different from the other teen movies of the 21st century is the fact that it's deeply ironical and mocks it's own genre.
If you want a simple, funny and easy (ha, see what i did there) entertainment movie, this might be perfect for you.
