Anti-Christian

Makes fun of Christians throughout the movie. Let's see you do that with any other religion Hollywood. Yea, not likely.

Loved it!!
Verified purchase
I absolutely loved this movie! It is a comedy and does have a couple of words here and there that may not be suitable for small children. The main character in the movie does wear some racy clothing as she continues on her course of self-discovery, and decides that dressing conservative just does not fit her new reputation. Victoria's Secret and Fredrick's of Hollywood type of clothing worn to high school is not actually something that would be allowed in real life. This movie definitely shows what happens when one small amount of information is blown up and goes through a telephone type of friend line, becoming grossly distorted along the way. This movie also shows a lot of the interpersonal relationships between different characters, such as, best friends, frenemies, boy/girl, etc. It is nice to see a movie where the main character still has some morals and is willing to help out friends who just do not feel popular or accepted. There are quite a few stars in the movie, with Emma Stone being the main character, who gets into a situation at her high school while trying to impress her slutty best friend. I chose to purchase the Blu-ray version over the regular DVD, and it was a good choice, as the movie plays so much clearer and crisper. The movie was wrapped in plastic, and had the original cover, so it was not a knock off copy made by some backwoods person trying to pass it off as the original. Overall, a very good movie choice

Great Movie. Great BluRay.
Verified purchase
This movie is hilarious and it has always been one of the movies that I will put on to play in the background while cleaning or working. I know nearly every line. So I finally decided to buy the BluRay instead of waiting for it to appear on Netflix or Hulu or something. The copy I received works perfectly and now I can just "watch" it on repeat all day long.

The movie itself is a teen comedy but something that adults can easily enjoy. It has themes that are relatable for many, especially females. The supporting actors are just as good as the principal actors. If you don't laugh and/or relate to the "greeting card scene" then we can't be friends. :D

Wow - This movie is great and Emma Stone can do no wrong!

I've decided to try to watch a movie every day during the Covid 19 lockdown. Today it was Easy A and it's one of the best movies I've seen yet. Emma Stone is always a joy to watch and this movie is no exception. When reading reviews of this movie it seemed that some Christians didn't feel that this movie treated them fairly. I don't share that opinion. In fact, this movie brought to mind the quote by Gandhi, “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” Yes, exactly.

Basic Junk

Foul mouths, non-witty so-called humorisms, Christian bashing, not really worth watching.

Easy A is a very funny movie starring the lovely and talented Emma Stone. It's clear Emma Stone has a quick wit and impeccable comedic timing by seeing her portray Olive, a modern day Hester Prynne who actually never commits adultery. (You can't ACT like you have good timing. You either have it or you don't.) Familiar faces like Penn Badgly, Amanda Bynes (pre-meltdown), Thomas Haden Church, & Lisa Kudrow are there for your viewing pleasure. Stanley Tucci & Patricia Clarkson steal the show as Olive's parents. They're a little hippie-dippy, very loving, and incredibly funny in these roles. Their characters have built a loving home for their daughter and adopted son. You can see where Olive gets her sense of humor as well as her compassion for people. We see it first in her desire to help a friend who is bullied at school because of who he is. This gives us the basis for the film and the ensuing story. Enjoy!

Would Sleazy A be more like it?
Verified purchase
I thought of this movie as potentially entertaining. That was in large part because it is a high school movie, and I THOUGHT the title was a reference to grades. It isn't. It is a high school movie in which a class is studying "The Scarlet Letter" -- Yes the one by Nathaniel Hawthorne. So it reminds of my high school making us read that novel. Not a pleasant memory, since back then I felt sure that making juniors in high school read that was drudgery, not entertainment. I still think I might be right. I'm not sure, because it was one of many high school required readings that much decreased rather than increased my motivation to ever get around to appreciating later the literary work in question. Much of the classical literature I've read since high school is, not surprisingly, stuff I escaped being required to read in high school. I've gotten back to reading and appreciating SOME of the classics they MADE me read back than, but so far NOT "The Scarlet Letter". If I ever do get back to reading it and find out I can appreciate it finally, then watching this again might be worthwhile. I might get some meaning that I've missed. I might catch more meaning and / or humor in adult subplots of "Easy A".

But as of now, most of what I can do is wonder what's the appeal of story of a high school student deciding to do an experiment in what happens when she endeavors to make herself look as "slutty" as possible. What does she plan to get out of said experiment? And how (if at all) does she plan to get out of the hole she's digging for herself? For all I can know at present, this movie might be one of those in which a character digs himself or herself too big a hole to ever get out of. If it was intended so, I'm at a loss to clearly see what this film was made for. Someday I might find out.

Should I recommend seeing this movie? If you are one of those (rare as far as I know) people who actually enjoyed and / or appreciated "The Scarlet Letter" in high school, a "go for it" recommendation MIGHT be in order. About the same might be true if you're one who read and appreciated "The Scarlet Letter" at a more "mature" age. But if you're like me and have yet to appreciate "The Scarlet Letter," I might venture to guess you're in a demographic that could afford to miss this movie for now, and maybe check it out later if you ever join the group of those who've red and appreciated that Hawthorne novel. I might eventually find out more. Don't think I'll watch "Easy A" again before I do.

First off Emma Stone freakin' rocks! She has to be one of the most talented actors I've seen. While I don't know her, unlike female leads in movies with the same target audiace she seems the least crappy. I think everyone can realate to at least something, if you've ever been to high school you know it really sucks. I love her character because in addition to the scarlett A which is some form of brilliant. So, if you're a teenage girl (or guy for that fact) or if you've ever been a teenager you'll like, like the characters and laugh. Besides that Thomas Hayden Church is so great as her teacher. That Facebook comment ever gets old to me. If you're a parent you might wanna watch alone because you know your kids but other then that it's great.
