Easy A (2010)
January 24, 2012
There’s reason why I like this movie, beside the fact that it has Emma Stone, is that it’s a smartly written teen-comedy.
A clean-cut high school student relies on the school’s rumor mill to advance her social and financial standing. So the plot wasn’t exactly what I expected, by that I mean I didn’t laugh that much in the movie. There wasn’t really that many jokes that were funny, I got the jokes, I didn’t think they were that funny. Luckily the smartly written story doesn’t heavily rely on just humor like many poorly made teen comedies as it tell the viewer a smartly written story and give actual character development to a relate-able character. Now for a guy who hasn’t seen many teen comedy, I have to say I was actually sad when it ended because I wanted the movie to go on.
Emma Stone does a great job in her first starring role. Her charm and character adds more likability to the movie. Now the rest of the cast is good, but Emma Stone actually proved she can carry a movie in a lead role. I truly hope I get to see her in more lead as I think she’s a charming and talented actress.
So Easy A is a smartly written teen comedy missing many laughs as there not executed correctly or just aren’t that funny. Thankfully Emma Stone first lead role is a good one and it shows that she can a big star.
