“"A Is For Awesome"”
“Smart, Sleek And Sexy, This Is One Of The Best High School Comedies In Years. Paying Homage To The Classic Films Of The '80s It's Clever, Original And Hilarious. Emma Stone Gives A Career Making Performance. This Movie Is Her "Pretty Woman!"”
If Lindsay Lohan never makes it back to leading-lady status, then we can all comfort ourselves with the knowledge that we have Emma Stone.
Owen Gleiberman - Entertainment Weekly
Whatever else it accomplishes, the sassy high school comedy Easy A commands attention for the irresistible presence of Emma Stone, playing a good girl who pretends to be bad.
Stephen Holden - New York Times
The script shrewdly boosts its IQ by working in parallels to Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter and piling on 80s teen movie references.
Cath Clarke - Guardian [UK]
Easy A not only makes the grade, but it comes in close to 100%.
Claudia Puig - USA Today
Enhanced by a wicked sense of humor, Will Gluck's movie does what Hughes did best, showcasing characters with personality who make you wish you had them on speed dial.
Stephanie Merry - Washington Post
Until it spins manically out of control in the last act, Easy A is a charmer: a high school satire with a lethally sharp script and a big, smart, adorable star performance from Emma Stone.
Ty Burr - Boston Globe
Easy A tacks on a sound message about a teenage girl's right to do with her body as she wishes; the 88 preceding minutes aren't much more relevant than, as one character snarks, "a gossip girl in a sweet valley of traveling pants."
Melissa Anderson - Village Voice
Will Gluck's high school comedy combines the soul of John Hughes with the arch sass of Diablo Cody, and delivers something delightfully new in the process.
Elizabeth Weitzman - New York Daily News
It catapults Emma Stone into a higher place reserved for American actors who can handle elevated language with casually dazzling aplomb.
Joe Morgenstern - Wall Street Journal
Any movie that quotes Mark Twain, excerpts John Hughes and employs a singeing British cussword normally unheard in PG-13 high school comedies - that's all right, too. More than all right. Easy A might not ace it, but it scores a solid B.
Amy Biancolli - Houston Chronicle
It makes with the clever dialogue and it does present a world where a young woman takes charge and triumphs over peer pressure, but the filmmakers were either too lazy or inept to find a way to be hip and competent at the same time.
Tom Maurstad - Dallas Morning News
A gem of a turn by Emma Stone as high school student Olive Penderghast makes this tale of a girl, gossip and independence a smart and self-aware hoot in the tradition of the teen flicks of the 1980s.
Lisa Kennedy - Denver Post
Given the luminaries ... dotting the cast, this ought to be some kind of fun, but it's not nearly as much fun as it might have been
Glenn Kenny - MSN Movies
The movie belongs to Stone, that gorgeous, husky-voiced redhead. When most actors deliver nonstop patter, their mouths get ahead of their minds, but Stone's brain works so fast that her mouth can barely keep up.
David Edelstein - New York Magazine
It's a funny, engaging comedy that takes the familiar but underrated Emma Stone and makes her, I believe, a star.
Roger Ebert - Chicago Sun-Times
Director Will Gluck shows wicked comic timing and uncommon warmth in an overworked genre.
Andrea Gronvall - Chicago Reader
Like the movie she's in, Olive is smart, sarcastic, and never snarky.
Carrie Rickey - Philadelphia Inquirer
A high-spirited, whip-smart high school sex comedy told from a female perspective, Easy A is The Scarlet Letter on laughing gas.
Colin Covert - Minneapolis Star Tribune
An extremely witty, inventive, sweet and perceptive coming-out party for Emma Stone.
Tom Long - Detroit News
This is the kind of movie about teenagers that an adult audience should embrace. It's simply that good, and Stone is nothing short of wonderful.
Randy Cordova - Arizona Republic
Is Olive practicing prostitution? Hair-splitters would say so, but hair-splitters likely won't be seeing Easy A, with its silliness, over-the-topitude and fabulous leading lady, who caps her fresh, charming performance with a musical number at the end.
John Anderson - Variety
Stone shows great self-assurance and considerable comic chops in a tour-de-force that that could have seemed smarmy and/or silly in lesser hands.
Lou Lumenick - New York Post
The ghost of John Hughes smiles upon Easy A, a film that freely and giddily borrows from and pays tribute to Hughes' famous Holy Trinity of '80s teen angst comedies.
Roger Moore - Orlando Sentinel
The material is elevated by the delightful Emma Stone, spinning comedy out of likability alone.
Laremy Legel - Film.com
The final mark? Well, give this proud A a solid B. It's definitely a Diablo Codyesque cut above the norm - the wit can sometimes feel contrived but at least there's wit to be found.
Rick Groen - Globe and Mail
A thoroughly delightful surprise, after a summer full of dim and dreary comedies.
Andrew O'Hehir - Salon.com
Easy A belongs in the company of Election, Heathers, and Mean Girls -- all motion pictures that have outlived their theatrical lives because they have unique voices and use them to say something.
James Berardinelli - ReelViews
An often hilarious and observant comedy about high school from the point of view of an extraordinarily smart and sagacious young woman.
Kirk Honeycutt - Hollywood Reporter
Olive is a kind of modern day Ferris Bueller. She has it pretty close to all figured out, and she even gets her own big, gratuitous musical number. It's a terrifically deadpan, lively performance from Stone.
Jake Coyle - Associated Press
As for Emma Stone, she didn't have to win me over. She conquered me from the first A.
Richard Corliss - TIME Magazine
The jokes are hit-and-miss. But Stone is one sassy babe and a breakout star who nails every zinger and brings genuine warmth to her scenes with her parents.
Peter Travers - Rolling Stone
Much of what passes for fresh in this Scarlet Letter update doesn't bear closer inspection, yet the movie is not without its pleasures, chief among them the potentially star-making lead performance by Emma Stone.
Sheri Linden - Los Angeles Times
What we get is a surprisingly funny film that has some charm to it, which is not something you hear applied to comedies all that often.
Jeff Beck - Examiner.com
Nell Minow - Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
This is the film where Stone really established herself not only as a star but as an engaging and charismatic actress
James Luxford - The National
A star-making performance by Emma Stone centers this humorous look at rumor mongering and the modern high school experience.
Wesley Lovell - Cinema Sight
Stone has a glittering career as a leading lady ahead of her.
Ben Rawson-Jones - Digital Spy
Matt Soergel - Florida Times-Union
Mark Kermode - BBC Radio Five Live
A "B" for effort and "C+" for execution.
Dave White - Movies.com
It does get by on lively energy, a creativity in its writing, and a star turn by Stone.
Jeffrey Chen - Window to the Movies
There's no reliance on gross out moments to sustain interest and it's genuinely funny with a lively script and a supporting cast of excellent adults.
Mike Barnard - Future Movies UK
Easy A passes due to Stone's star turn and a knowing screenplay that needed a little more bravery to elevate it to a top achievement.
Mark Pfeiffer - Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
Emma Stone gets her best role to date in Easy A, a smart high-school comedy that recalls Clueless and 10 Things I Hate About You in its witty contemporary spin to a literary classic.
Jason Best - Movie Talk
Si la pelicula no es una perdida de tiempo es, en primer lugar, gracias al talento comico de Emma Stone y a una serie de referencias a la cultura pop capaces de generar empatia en el espectador.
Enrique Buchichio - Uruguay Total
One of the most smug and obnoxiously self-aware films I've ever seen...
Felix Vasquez Jr. - Cinema Crazed
With whip-smart dialog and an interesting premise, along with homages to the legendary John Hughes (who would be proud of this film), this high school sex comedy is way above average for this lowly movie genre.
Robert Roten - Laramie Movie Scope
Ungainly but fleet, generous and, in between quips, alert to youthful discovery
Fernando F. Croce - CinePassion
"At the screening I was at, a youngish chap slouching next to me asked his friend: 'remind me why we're watching this'. 'For the girls,' was the reply. For Emma Stone, to be precise.
Andrew Hedley - Flicks.co.nz
Stone elevates the material to the near sublime in its best moments.
Rob Humanick - Projection Booth
