Easy A

Starring Emma Stone, Amanda Bynes, Thomas Hayden Church, Lisa Kudrow, Stanley Tucci, and Patricia Clarkson

Directed by Will Gluck

Release Date: September 17, 2010

I'm gonna be perfectly honest: the trailer for this movie didn't get my interest initially. However, after seeing the film, I really enjoyed this high school drama revolving around the rumor mill that is a populace of high school teenagers. The cast is very funny, especially Emma Stone as Olive, Patricia Clarkson and Stanley Tucci as Olive's liberal, trying way too hard to be cool parents, and Thomas Haden Church as Mr. Griffith. Inspired by Nathaniel Hawtherone's The Scarlett Letter and John Hughes movies of the 1980's, Easy A is a lighthearted comedy that explores the gossip revolving around Olive Penderghast, as one little lie soon erupts into a whirlwind of assumptions and dirty looks.

Rating: * * * * of 5
