Movie Review: Easy A
Easy A (stylized as easy A) is a 2010 American teen comedy film directed by Will Gluck, written by Bert V. Royal and starring Emma Stone, Stanley Tucci, Patricia Clarkson, Thomas Haden Church, Dan Byrd, Amanda Bynes, Penn Badgley, Cam Gigandet, Lisa Kudrow, and Aly Michalka. The screenplay was partially inspired by the novel The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne.
The Review:2010 definitely had brought in a lot of good movies...I can't believe I was actually one year late to finally see a movie as good as Easy A. I'd watched it last year, and I have no idea how I came across this movie in the first place. Easy A is the only movie till date, that I've kept on repeat, without skipping a single scene. It was that good in my opinion. In fact, I decided to pay my own tribute to the movie by making my protagonist, Jasmine, have the very same song as the ring tone, which was a huge part of Easy A:
I've got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine
I've got a love and I know that it's all mine -
That was the lie which started it all. Because Rhiannon comes back, demanding exactly what Olive has been up to over the weekend, and assumes she must have "lost her V-card" to George. Unfortunately, this incident is overheard by Mary Ann Bryant (Amanda Bryant), who is called a "stuck up Jesus freak" by her peers. Mary Ann makes it her personal mission to make Olive tread the righteous path and not behave like a skank.
If you're like me, you'd probably watch the IMDB list and find out the goofs and trivias...but let me just tell you that, do not look into the goofs. You'll end up spoiling your own joy at watching the movie.
The soundtrack too was amazing. Never have I enjoyed my night time movie watching session more. I definitely became Emma Stone's fan, judging by the performance she put forward here. So if you want something to entertain you, and you're looking for witty statuses to put up on facebook, this just might be the movie for you. (This movie has plenty of good dialogues which can be used as statuses.)
