Easy A Blu-Ray Review

Easy A Blu-Ray Review


Synopsis: In this charming, critically acclaimed tale of rumors and reputation, Olive (Emma Stone), an average high school student, sees her below-the-radar existence turn around overnight once she decides to use the school's gossip grapevine to advance her social standing. Now her classmates (Amanda Bynes, Aly Michalka) are turning against her and the school board is becoming concerned, including her favorite teacher (Thomas Haden Church) and the distracted Guidance Counselor (Lisa Kudrow). With the support of her hilariously idiosyncratic parents (Stanley Tucci, Patricia Clarkson) and a little help from a long time crush (Penn Badgley), Olive attempts to take on her notorious new identity and crush the rumor mill once and for all.

Review: Easy A is one of those comedies that really caught me by surprise.  I figured it would look cute, but not really live up to the hype.  I think without lead actress Emma Stone the film would've been a dud, but she brings such life to the character of Olive Penderghast that you can't help but love this film.

Emma Stone breaks out in this lead role of a girl that sells pretend sex for bribes in a film that reminded me almost instantly of 'Can't Buy Me Love' from the 1980s.  The film is full of laughs and the very charasmatic Stone.  Her character is so snyde and so fun that you can't help but love her.

This film is now the reigning queen of the high school satire genre!  We highly recommend to anyone.
