Plot: Olive, 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 are turning against her and the school board is becoming concerned, including her favorite teacher and the distracted guidance counselor. With the support of her hilariously idiosyncratic parents and a little help from a long-time crush, Olive attempts to take on her notorious new identity and crush the rumor mill once and for all.

Pretty far removed from my wheelhouse, but Emma Stone makes for such a great lead, the banter-y dialogue given to the adult roles (most masterfully spoken by Stanley Tucci) is so hilarious, and the story flows so naturally from A to B to C that you can’t stop for long enough to question the flaws while you’re watching it, that there was no way I couldn’t at least give Easy A a passing grade (no pun intended).
_Final rating:★★★ – I personally recommend you give it a go._
When I first saw the trailer of Easy A, I wasn’t particularly intrigued. It looked like just another high school teenage comedy. But then I decided to watch it anyway (mostly because I wanted to know what all the fuss was about), and it turned out to be a very pleasant surprise! Coincidentally, I had just seen Emma Stone for the first time two days ago, when I watched Zombieland, and I thought to myself, “Hey this girl seems kind of cool”. But that still wasn’t an answer as to why right now I can’t read a single magazine without seeing her face somewhere. After seeing Easy A, I finally know. This girl is FUN. She has a great talent for comedy of the driest, most sarcastic kind and a perfect sense of timing. And you’ve got to love that husky voice.
Easy A is about a girl, Olive, who’s a straight A-student with a flawless reputation, until she tells a little white lie to her best friend about how she supposedly lost her virginity to a guy that doesn’t even exist. However, things go awry when this little anecdote spreads like wildfire and all of a sudden she has a reputation of being a hussy. (This plot line demands some suspension of disbelief, because it’s obviously very hard to believe that any group of high school students would be shocked at the thought of one of their peers _*having sex*_, but whatever.) Of course, like with any rumour, it changes constantly depending on who you talk to. So before Olive knows what hit her, everybody in school thinks she slept with every guy around. Now here’s the twist: once it becomes clear that she can use this newfound reputation to her advantage, she does so to the fullest. Simply put: unpopular guys pay her to PRETEND she had sex with them. Obviously, at some point things get out of hand and she has to find a way to fix it all again.
This concept could have been really stupid, if it wasn’t for the great screenplay. It is a tribute to classic 80’s teenage films including, of course, John Hughes, and it also features some great references to The Scarlet Letter and Sylvia Plath. The dialogue is quick and witty, and the characters are all really typical people without being cliché stereotypes. Stanley Tucci is a delight as Olive’s dad, bringing the same kind of dry-as-a-bone humour to the table as his on-screen daughter. Patricia Clarkson is a wonderful actress, and as it turns out, a really funny one as well. All the actors are perfectly cast.
One of the funniest elements in Easy A is a group of Christian students, the ‘Jesus freaks’. The leader of this little group is a girl called Marianne, played by Amanda Bynes. She just can’t stop preaching to Olive about her ‘indecent behaviour’ and the dialogue between the two provides some of the funniest moments throughout the film. Here’s a small foretaste; Marianne: “There’s a higher power that will judge you for your indecency.” Olive: “Tom Cruise?”
Overall, this is mostly a ‘chuckle’ comedy rather than a ‘rolling over the floor laughing’ comedy, though it has some really good LOL moments. And the ‘chuckles’ are widespread.
I would definitely recommend watching Easy A if you’re in the mood for a witty, intelligent comedy about a smart, sassy girl who takes control of her own life and everybody who thinks they have a right to think badly about her.
Fun, hip and goofy modern comedy and ’80s comedy homage
Through much of the beginning of “Easy A,” you have to find all the ’80s teen comedy homages fishy. Maybe director Will Gluck and Burt V. Royal are trying to dress up a classic Hughesian formula with modern banter and social media references. Then, somewhere near the halfway point, comes the admission. Olive, played by up-and-comer Emma Stone, confesses she wants her life to have a “Sixteen Candles” or “Breakfast Club” or “Say Anything” moment. Ah, and suddenly this is homage territory — much better. Like the rest of this hip, fun and surprisingly touching comedy, any time “Easy A” wanders down the path of cliché, a killer line or great scene nullifies it.
It all begins and ends with Stone, who can do a little bit of everything, which ought to ensure her a long career. She can do typical teen comedy lead autopilot/earn our sympathy, she can command the improvisation-like tangential dry humor that has defined the comedies of the last five or so years and she can be the sensitive, fragile Molly Ringwald type. Nothing feels forced or unnatural in her performance. She seems to be having fun and milking to goofy nature of Royal’s script.
More importantly, the reason “Easy A” is so good is because it never stops being about Olive’s story. A high school nobody, Olive lets her best friend (Alyson Michalka) pressure her into lying about losing her virginity. The simple lie gets overheard by the super-Christian Miss Everybody (Amanda Bynes) and suddenly everyone sees Olive differently, or sees her period. After deciding to embrace the attention as school slut (the story reaches here a bit), Olive then starts to pretend to have sex with guys in need of a reputation boost, which consequently sullies her own.
The only real problem with “Easy A” is that there’s no good reason to believe Stone was this unattractive nobody given her actual attractiveness and the friends she has — and we’re supposed to believe that suddenly everyone is interested in her because she lost her virginity. Gluck tries to spin this into a positive by making it almost comical how everyone is staring at her or waiting in a perfect line for her to come down the hall, but it’s the one scratch in this gem — take it or leave it. The script and humor and situations that arise eventually more than make up for this road bump.
Gluck’s filmmaking is hip and common of modern comedy while the writing is clever and spontaneous. For no logical reason, a scene when Olive’s gay friend Brandon (the one she helps first) comes over, Stone and Patricia Clarkson, who plays her mother, do this quick exchange of pretending they’re in the Old South and a boy has come over and asked for her. Though completely random and a bit forced, they actually work well at making the characters seem more organic, which is the challenge of most comedies, especially those made today.
Clarkson and Stanley Tucci as the parents are the comic relief. When was the last time parents in a teen comedy were genuine comic relief? They walk a fine line between wacko and genuinely caring and loving parents, but it totally works. Two more originally funny parents haven’t existed on film before. Characters such as the aforementioned best friend Rhiannon and Bynes’ are more by-the-book as far as being teen comedy stencils, but like every other small flaw with the film, they’re covered up by all the multi-dimesional and more interesting ones. Worthy of mention are school faculty members played by Thomas Haden Church, Lisa Kudrow and Malcolm MacDowell.
Most intriguing of all is how the film actually succeeds at finding moments of genuine drama. A few well-thought-out and creative plot twists introduce an intelligence seemingly foreign to these kinds of comedies. The key once again comes from staying focused on Olive’s story. The film is structured as a retelling with narration from Olive, so it’s told in a reflective manner, which ultimately keeps it from veering off course. It’s about Olive wrestling with this lie and her feelings about how she wants to be perceived, along with her understandable pity for the boys who request her “services.” High school’s rough and reputation seems to be everything. Some elements of the high-school experience in “Easy A” might be way off, but that’s dead on.
Although it lacks the intangible innocence of the numerous ’80s comedies it references, “Easy A” has a unique and lively spirit of its own and is the best teen comedy (at least featuring a female, finally!) in years. More importantly, it shows that the modern teenage sense of humor and good storytelling don’t have to be mutually exclusive.
Modern Day Scarlet Letter A
I have only a few words for this movie.
It is very realistic yet funny. The rumors and gossips can destroy one’s life. These should never be practiced. Lies will always hurt people in so many ways.
The protagonist is unbelievably beautiful. I do not know why she was saying those words in the beginning of the movie that no one notices her! I think the director should have cast a little less beautiful person in this character. It is impossible not to notice her. The moment I saw her in this movie, after so many years I was telling myself that Oh why this girl is so beautiful!!!! Really! the protagonist should have been played by someone else of lesser beauty.
And the half naked male characters should think of personal hygiene a bit more.
But overall story is very strong. It translates the modern day ostracism and the life of a woman who is victimized by it. The society is so damn unforgiving when it comes to girls and boys like this. It is unbelievable. It shows how teenage people are abusing technology and destroying social life of someone even without understanding it. If western world is infected with this virus called gossip at such an epidemic level then the society really is doomed. There is no helping it. The movie is the best remedy and eye opener for anyone who loves gossiping.
