My aunt told me I just had to see this hilarious movie. And she was right.
In easy A Olive Penderghast (Emma Stone) lies to everyone. After she tells her best friend Rhiannon she slept with a college guy, her friend Brandon comes up to her and asks if she wants to sleep with him so he can become popular. She knows he’s gay so she trusts him with her secret that she’s still a virgin. He’s totally cool with that and together they decide to fake his very first time at a party. It’s a huge success and Olive’s glad she could help Brandon. What she didn’t expect was a range of ‘customers’. Desperate guy after desperate guy ask her if they can fake kiss her or pretend to have sex with her in exchange for money or gift cards. Olive agrees and her new business is born. Of course it’s getting out of hand. Rhiannon doesn’t talk to her anymore, the strictly religious Marianne (Amanda Bynes) tries to ‘save’ her and everyone at school thinks of her as the new hot skank in town who’s spreading chlamydia. Olive decides to embrace her new self and stiches a big red A on her new, sexy clothes. Things get worse but fortunately her parents believe in her and her old crush Todd (Penn Badgley. Woohoo, Gossip Girl’s cute little Dan!) tells her he doesn’t believe a thing about the rumors. Olive and her mom come up with a plan to confess what she’s done: At a school pep rally she sings a song where she refers to her web page. At this page people can see her webcam posts where she tells the truth and nothing but the truth about the past months. Of course Todd tells Olive he likes her, because it’s still just an entertaining movie. But he, the rest of the story was actually really fun!
I’d give this movie a 7,5 out of 10.
I think Emma Stone did a fantastic job playing Olive. I love her lisping voice and funny faces. She’s hot but not ordinary beautiful. I laughed so many times during this movie, because Olive really is a funny person. Or maybe it’s just Emma who embraced Olive and made her rock. Olive’s parents are hilarious. Todd’s cute, Rhiannon’s annoying and I should give some credits to Amanda Bynes who plays Marianne really good.
Anyway, if you wanna enjoy a fun, not too difficult movie you should watch easy A!
