Easy A Reviews

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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
