Easy A [2010]

A funny, witty and entertaining mess. Easy A is somewhat of a cross between Superbad and Mean Girls and, despite its pretty obvious flaws, it’s actually the best teen comedy since both of the classics it so resembles, mainly because of Emma Stone’s unrelenting charisma and presence. Stone has been doing a pretty good job at comedies like the aforementioned Superbad and Zombieland, but this is the film that will finally make her a star (if it hasn’t already). A great addition: prestige actors Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson as Olive’s (Stone) fun, quirky parents. Dan Byrd and Amanda Bynes are quite good in their roles, too. On the other hand, that Cam Gigandet is an extraordinarily bad actor, isn’t he?
