Easy A review
Daniel Corleone - wrote on 09/09/12
Olive Penderghast (Emma Stone) lies about her sexuality to her best friend Rhiannon (Alyson Michalka). A religious Marianne (Amanda Bynes) spreads what she overheard between the conversations of Olive and Rhiannon. Todd (Penn Badgley) doesn't believe what people say and gets close to Olive. Soundtrack was upbeat and direction was splendid. Emma Stone did a fabulous job, which made the film interesting. Humor was spot on despite the thin plot. Laugh out loud scenes would be the supposed sex scene with Brandon, parents discussion with Olive and the religious group discussion. Screenplay was witty with lines from: Olive - "Whatever happened to chivalry?" Mrs. Griffin - "Olive, life is full of choices. I made a bad one." It was a nice touch complimenting John Hugh's pictures. Easy A is an effective comedy about how fast rumors travel like a speed of light, doing good, people's perception, infidelity, lies, image, making things right and attraction.
