Easy A Review

After a little white lie about losing her virginity gets out, a clean cut high school girl (Emma Stone) sees her life paralleling Hester Prynne's in "The Scarlet Letter," which she is currently studying in school – until she decides to use the rumor mill to advance her social and financial standing.

I really wanted to watch this one, so when it get available i didn't lose time:P 

Emma Stone plays a high school girl, who lies to her friend (because she is really annoying) and then everything changes. A rumor about her starts and while she tries to help other people (to be other guys) who have problem with their sexual life, she get to be the slut of the school, loses her friends, boys only want her for sex,etc...

The reason i wanted to see this one is because it's different. Most high school movies are about an infamous girl, who is hated by the most popular girl and the she likes her ex-boyfriend and blah blah..you know how this goes. In this one, we see a more normal-real story of a girl. And how she destroyed her reputation by her own mistakes. How the enviromment of the school or her family, acting on the situation and etc. I have to say i liked more than every high-school movie, i have seen so far, and believe me they are a lot! It's funny, cute, clever, original..it's different. Different than we used to. And for once, boys can watch a high school movie which is not girly! Unisex ;)

In additional with all the greatness of the story itself, we have the cast. I knew every single actor. Great names, and everyone fantastic. Emma Stone is one of my favorite actresses and all her roles are so different than each other. I love how great she is with everything she does. The other big suprise for me is Amanda Bynes. I have used to watch her as the "cliche good girl" of the high school movies and here has different role. She is at the opposite side without being mean with no reason.

If you have time, you really need to catch this one. It's easy to watch it, not tiresome and pretty funny.

Full cast: Emma Stone ( The House Bunny, The Rocker, Zombieland), Amanda Bynes (She's the Man, Hairspray), Penn Badgley ( Gossip Girl), Alyson Michalka ( Hellcats), Dan Byrd ( A Cinderella Story, Cougar Town), Thomas Haden Church ( Spiderman 3, Over The Hedge), Patricia Clarkson ( Shutter Island, The Green Mile, Jumanji), Cam Giganet ( Twilight, The Unborn, Pandorum), Lisa Kudrow ( F.R.I.E.N.D.S), Malcom McDowell ( The Book of Eli, Halloween), Stanley Tucci ( The Devil Wears Prada, Lovely Bones, The Terminal), Fred Armisen (SNL, The Rocker, EuroTrip, Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny)
*yeah they are all in ONE movie..haha*


  1. this does look like a good movie. i've been trying to psych myself up to read THe Scarlet Letter, so maybe a contemporary "retelling" will get me in the mood? i know this movie isn't a retelling, but there seems to be some parallels.

  2. yeah there are...and they also do a sum up of the Scarlet Letter story ;)

  3. There is also a movie about Scarlet Letter....I think Demi Moore stars....
    And I really want to see the movie....

  4. Hahaha..funny you mention that Nina. There are actually two movies of Scarlet Letter. One really old and one with Demi Moore. In Easy A, they really bash the Demi one XD

  5. Oh, now I totally want to grab a copy of this. This just got out on DVD right?

  6. Well..i don't think so. At Amazon says will be out on February.

  7. i watched the movie cuz u recommended it and i have to say that it was a great pick!
    i really liked olive and i loved her mom and mostly her dad !!!
    it isn't a classic high school movie at all, it's different and funny..
    although i can't say i liked Amanda Bynes, her role is too much actually..
    thnx for the review, i really enjoyed it !

  8. so happy you liked it:D
    and yeah her dad is a bit crazy...her whole family..they are so ok with everything..haha!

  9. Although it's not funny, it's quite entertaining. Actually, this movie tells a teenager story. We can see a teenager have pressures on her.


There is lot of spam lately at the posts, so for a while i will put up the comment moderation. Sorry for that, i really don't like it but i thought it might stop the spamming. It will be down soon enough! Thanks a lot :)
