I saw Easy A yesterday and want to spew my thoughts all over you in 100 words or less.
Boy, that sounded pretty gross. Anyway...
Emma Stone plays Olive, a snarky teen who lies about losing her virginity. Someone hears, and the rumor mutates. Eventually Olive ‘takes jobs’ to start other rumors that help the down-trodden. There’s a fake sex scene that's beyond hysterical.
Meanwhile, an over-the-top Christian group calls for Olive’s expulsion. She confesses via webcam and gets a kiss from Woodchuck Todd. The (happy) End.
Stone’s scrunched brows, pursed lips, and sideways glances create a lovely character. Olive’s parents are delightful, and the jokes and references are perfectly placed (the Quiznos guy).This movie felt ‘high school real.’ I’ll be buying it soon.
Yikes! 100 words is easier when I don't enjoy the movie. :) Your thoughts on Easy A?
