Cleverer and deeper than I expected this was really worth watching. Emma Stone is great in the lead role and the characters of her parents and the christian student group are well played too.
In one scene, the heroine pines nostalgically for 80s teen comedies, the implication being that none have provided the same magic since. I am inclined to agree, barring a few notable exceptions: Clueless, Mean Girls, 10 Things I Hate About You and Juno. Like these, Easy A features a charming female lead, impossibly eccentric (but ultimately loving) parents and a sweet, sensitive love interest. Unlike these however, Easy A lacks a sense of heart and warmth, drowning instead in its own cleverness and the need for an endless succession of zingers. Despite all its potential, a disappointment.
I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. Whilst I feared it would be a smutty, crude, American Pie-style "guys movie", it was actually something very different. For a start, it's a story about a young woman, told by her, with all the emotion & confusion that goes with it. Funny, modern, & with at least one twist I didn't see coming, my wife & I found it an enjoyable evening's viewing.
Pretty average. Although that seems to be norm these days with teen movies.
Really enjoyable! Funny and thoughtful! I really loved this one :)
I have seen dis movie a while ago. I didn't realise that until I got the movie. Loved it when I watched it the 1st time. So it's probably bias to rate now as it's my 2nd time watching it. But definitely a good movie for sure!
This was a really pleasant surprise and a very entertaining movie.
Incredibly funny! good flick to watch with your teen!
I enjoyed this. Emma Stone is a delight in the role and Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson are the icing on the cake. Most of it is unrealistic and parts of it rather silly but it is an enjoyable " light" movie.
one should be careful, One wonders how many lives have been destroyed by the same prank
funny movie , a lot of bad language (should have realised this before my 14 yo was in the room!
Not as awful as I'd expected it to be.. Quite a refreshing change from the usual syrup-filled cheesy endings! Well worth a watch!
Decent but not very funny. Like a comedy should be. Not as boldly different or intelligent as you may have been led to believe. The charming Ms Emma Stone was better in Superbad and Zombieland.
A very smart contemporary teen film that mocks everything that's wrong with high school and tributes the classic teen films of the past. I'm sure both your average teenager and your dedicated film enthusiast will find something to like in this. Easy A is sure to be a classic with time.
Thought it was clever, and true how a lie can get out of control.
Such an entertaining movie. Great characters who play off each other so well. A very funny film that flows so well. A must see.
I had little expectation from this movie however was quite surprised by the end that I had enjoyed it. It is not Emma Stone's only movie with reference to The Scarlet Letter (see Stupid Crazy Love) but it is done well.
Not as good as I was expecting, ending felt a bit rushed but overall ok, enjoyable film.
I thought that this was going to be a little naff, but found myself having a chuckle here and their, A little bit He said She said sort of movie but a little bit of fun never hurt anyone, Right?
How unexpectedly awesome. Emma Stone is a comedic wizard.
Clever, intelligent comedy. Lots of 1980's movie references for us 'oldies'. Well worth hiring.
Love It is is such a true storyline and is very enjoyable
Love Emma Stone so & Good storyline.
Nicely done, but very few laughs to be had. Would give it 2.5 stars really but no half star ratings allowed here.
Not your cliche American teens at school film. I love that the main character is so close to her parents, respects them and talks to them. I love that there is no popular cheerleader and jock, I love that everyone is friends with everyone despite the nasty rumours going around. Funny, entertaining film!! I would watch it again!!
I loved this. Emma and the rest of the cast are perfectly cast. The dialogue is witty and funny. No wonder Emma is getting good roles now. She makes her character likeable and endearing, with a lot of nuances. Recommended highly.
Funny movie...Emma Stone was good!
This was a lighthearted chick flick and enjoyable as light entertainment. I like the lead character and it is interesting to see her navigate through the various relationships facing teenagers. I like her internal grit and sass that help her get through the rumour mill and deal with the snowball effect of that one, overheard lie. I like the full circle the movie takes you on and the way it shows the layers of human interactions. An enjoyable, entertaining movie.
Loved the sarcasm in the movie. Really cute family but not as funny as I expected. Still very enjoyable.
Surprisingly good for a teenage rom-com. Emma Stone is an actress to watch.
Missed alot of this movie due to my upset bub but really didn't impress me enough to sit and watch it again. Disappointed as I thought it looked good from the previews.
Light entertainment with a few mildly amusing scenes.
Hilarious! Emma Stone looks like she'll be what Lindsay Lohan "could have been". She has great comedic timing. Watch it.
Great coming of age movie. Very funny, and well written script.
Pridictable teen Americana fluff!!! I loved it! Am gonna get both my daughters to watch this when they go to highschool!!! (Especially loved the references to my own personal favourite teen flix from the '80's- Can't buy me love, Say anything and Breakfast Club!)
Overall pretty good movie, storyline does seem to go a little astray towards end.
Pretty good movie, recommended for a good laugh
What a wonderfully disfunctional family. Good strong message as to how gossip and situations can be misconstrued
A fun film to watch once.
Enjoyable comedy starring actress from Superbad. Good message
this movie was funny & witty in places, however it wasnt as good as i thought it was going to be...
Too funny! Laugh a minute. Takes me back to what it was like in high school. Very enjoyable movie.
This is light hearted and funny even when they are trying to be dramatic and deep. It has got to be one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long time and Emma Stone truly pulls it off with style. Amanda Bynes as the snobby jesus bitch is hilarious and not a role I would have pegged her for, almost overpowered at times by her little sidekick. Lisa Kudrow is in her element and as quirky as ever. Thomas Haden Church, what can I say...LOVE HIM! He is quick, witty and cool, I had a teacher like him when I was in school, I just wish there were more of them. All of the characters are well rounded and there are no loose ends, it would probably be more popular with younger audiences like 13 or so, but a lot of my friends like it too. Movies dont always have to be deep thinking or filled with clever witticisms. Its nice to just have a dumb funny comedy now and then
Some great laughs, a lovably family, and a unique movie.
Entertaining and light, with a good story. A good laugh.
I really enjoyed this movie - very easy viewing. Emma Stone is brilliant!
Love this movie, think it's real cute the way how things were presented and said.
A great, fun, light-hearted movie with top quality actors and sharp writing. It took me back to the 'it' movie of my teens, Ferris Bueller. Emma Stone (who looks like the love-child of Lindsey Lohan and Justine Bateman) was perfectly cast and carried the movie well.
Light hearted, amusing. I absolutely loved Olive's parents....worth watching
All in All this movie was a good movie. Think a few things could have been better but The lead actress was perfect for this role. She really made this movie
Not our kind of movie BUT our 14yr old Granddaughter was here for a few days and she very much enjoyed it.
A bit silly but a bit of fun.
I liked it. It was better than I expected but had only a few laugh out loud parts. This one is definitely one for the girls though so spare your boyfriend.
Unfortuneately a lot of the funny bits were in the preview but amusing and humourous overall. Not as good as i was hoping.
Not too bad actually! Easy to watch and fun, with enough of a plot to keep you watching. The main actor makes the film - she's fabulous.
Entertaining, rather like Juno but more light-hearted.
What a great movie, loved every minute of it would recommend it to anyone .
excellent movie, above my expectations - the teens loved it
Its ok. I didn't hate it, but i wont go as far as saying i love it. I don't think i will watch it again... good to see once
One of the best movies i have seen in a long time couldnt stop laughing
Great girlie movie, especially teenager girls, but I enjoyed it, cause it had character, story, and comedy all in one. Can relate to just how rumors go. Well worth a watch.
I enjoyed this movie. The casting of the main characters was a job well done. Emma Stone reminds me a little of Lindsay Lohan before she went downhill. I loved the references to the 80's movies, especially my favourite "The Breakfast Club". It's probably not something I'd watch again, but it definitely was a nice way to help pass the afternoon.
Enjoyable mainly due to the lead actress. Fun stuff
Ok bit of fluff but the best bit was the description and the gag reel, everything else was just average
Was funny and I enjoyed it. Lead actress was awesome, was surprising, funny and romantic - Great movie!!!
This is a completely stupid and funny movie, it has a real "fun" to it. I was so into this movie that I was fuming when I received a phone call from overseas and I had to pause it.
15 movie due to the mature nature of some parts of the movie. Loved the refreshing relationship the main actor has with her parents, very positive and I could only hope that my daughters are like that with me as teens.
Love the outfits she wears in the movie, might have to get me a couple LOL
Great "popcorn" movie that doesn't tax the brain and will give you a few good chuckles. Stanley Tucci
I thought this was very easy to watch. Very funny, not too deep and entertaining.
This not your typical teen movie, I found it quite enjoyable. I loved the story and characters especially Olive's parents!
Yeah, it was okay, I guess... Not as good as the 80s teen movies it referenced. All just a bit too hip and knowing. Never really got on-side with the girl, she just wasn't believable.
Really enjoyed this one. The parents were hilarious! Definitely worth watching.
Really loved this movie. Thought it might have been one for teens only but a good one for all ages. Was pleasantly surprised with the smart witty dialogue, great acting by all (loved the parents!), not to mention the fun story with a few morals tucked in for good measure. Would watch this one again.
Well, 100 characters makes it difficult, I mean, how many ways are there of saying juvenile rubbish, not for anyone over the age of about 12.
Unusual for a high school comedy, this one is extremely smart and funny and will appeal to teenagers and parents alike. Emma Stone is awesome.
