Emma Stone stars as Olive, a good girl who is almost completely unnoticed at school. That all changes when she's coerced into fibbing to her best friend Rhiannon about losing her virginity to a guy she made up. Her white lie is overheard by stuck-up Christian snob Marianne (Amanda Bynes) and it soon spreads like wildfire around school. Suddenly, she's the school slut.

However, she realizes that she doesn't really mind the attention so when bullied gay classmate Brandon (Dan Byrd) asks her to do him a favor and help spread a false rumor that she slept with him she feels morally obligated to do so (which furthers the rumors about her). More outcasts come to Olive for help and with a little cash incentive as well as pity she keeps helping them. Olive decides to embrace her newfound status as the school's most notorious fallen woman but as her life begins to imitate that of the character in the book 'The Scarlet Letter' which she reading in school things quickly spirals out of control.

A wry comedy starring a self-assured teen from the 'burbs, Easy A is derivative of every John Hughes movie and I loved Patricia Clarkson and Stanley Tucci as her goofy parents who are clueless to what's going on and are a hoot every time they're on screen. It's worth watching for some quick and fun dialogue – too many very good lines to quote.
