    Synopsis


    Easy A
    Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter is re-imagined as a contemporary high school comedy in this tale of a scheming student who plots to give her popularity a boost by painting herself the easiest lay in school. Like most high school kids, Olive Penderghast (Emma Stone) just wants to be popular. So much so than when her best friend, Rhiannon (Aly Michalka), asks Olive how her weekend went, the bored teen decides to whip up a spicy white lie just to make things interesting. But that minor exaggeration begins to take on a life of its own when it reaches the ears of motor-mouth gossip Jesus freak Marianne (Amanda Bynes), and in no time the entire student body is abuzz over unassuming Olive's unrepentant weekend of debauchery. Of course not a word of it is true, but that doesn't stop everyone in school from talking, and an amused Olive from deciding to go with the flow. Playing the role of the hussy to the hilt, the girl who used to be invisible begins dressing provocatively and turning heads in the hallways. The students aren't the only ones taking notice, either; Olive's English teacher, Mr. Griffith (Thomas Haden Church), is concerned that the kind of attention she's receiving isn't healthy for a developing girl, and his wife (Lisa Kudrow), the school guidance counselor, is in full agreement. The only people who seem remotely interested in the truth are Olive's trusting and open-minded parents (Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson). As Olive takes note of the parallels between her own situation and the plight of the Scarlet Letter heroine Hester Prynne, she realizes that she may be able to manipulate her newfound notoriety to give fellow classmate Brandon's (Dan Byrd) popularity a much-needed shot in the arm. Olive never thought her little game could possibly have any negative effect on anyone but herself, but when loose lips start sinking ships all around her, she realizes that it's high time for the truth to come out. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      I went in not expecting anything and got a great laugh. This movie was really good, liked the main character's parents, kind of happy go lucky, sometimes it seemed their kid was the parent. But this was because they knew they had a good, responsible daughter. There were lots to laugh about this picture, funny situations and great line deliveries. There are also some learnable moments, like what "assumption" can cause. It was an all around, light hearted, but just heavy enough to get to know the characters (through development), relatable story - don't want to set off spoiler alerts. Plus, I could not pass it up for the price. A+ for Easy A!

      The star of this movie, Emma Stone, is a great actress. She plays Olive Penderghast, a high school student, whose reputation goes from non-existent to total trollop. She soon learns that being well known is not the same as being well liked. The blu-ray disc contains some nice special features such as a Commentary with Director Will Gluck and Emma Stone, a Gag Reel, and some Emma Stone Audition Footage. The video and sound quality is excellent. This is a clever and amusing movie that people from all age groups will like.

      This movie is admittedly a bit of a guilty pleasure for me. It isn't usually the genre I enjoy, but Stone's line delivery and Stanley Tucci as her wisecracking dad just does it for me. The scenes with both of them are my hands down favorites. Anyway, this a pretty decent, if not formulaic film. It has more than it's fair share of laughs, and at the bargain bin price of $4.99, I couldn't pass it up.

      Emma Stone charms in a film in which she gets caught in a lie that leads to her being ostracized from her school and looked down upon by her puritanical classmates. Easy A impressed me. It was witty, biting, and also featured some pleasant performances. The film probably could have been fleshed out a bit more, but it works well enough. The audio and video were solid, while the extra features were run-of-the-mill.

      Cheerfully offensive

      "Easy A" has a lot going for it. There's an abundance of witty dialogue, and the message of protecting and caring about your reputation is an important one. At the same time, the film ignorantly and unfairly lampoons its supposedly-Christian characters. Apparently it's only important to protect your own reputation, but it's okay to besmirch the character of those with whom you might disagree ...

      The Scarlet Letter. Ah yes, that book freshman year of high school myself and half the English class didn't come close to comprehending w/o the teacher guiding us along, chapter to chapter. This movie was a great modern retelling of the story, and it allowed Emma Stone to further cement herself as a force to be reckoned with young in her career.

      Awesome fun for teens and adults

      A teen movie with the heart of a John Hughes flick and the strong stage presence of a wonderful up and coming young actress. Emma Stone captures the frustrations of youth as a lie goes malignant through the gossip channels of high school. With references to Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Can't Buy Me Love and Say Anything, how can you say no to watching this movie? It's a must see.

      Easy A is a sarcastic comedy. It's brilliantly written, and tells a great moral to young women: to not give into peer pressure, nor sell yourself, just for attention. The comedic approach to the serious subject matter keeps the film light hearted while still discussing serious issues (and the consequences of decisions) in today's society.
