Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter is re-imagined as a contemporary high school comedy in this tale of a scheming student who plots to give her popularity a boost by painting herself the easiest lay in school. Like most high school kids, Olive Penderghast (Emma Stone) just wants to be popular. So much so than when her best friend, Rhiannon (Aly Michalka), asks Olive how her weekend went, the bored teen decides to whip up a spicy white lie just to make things interesting. But that minor exaggeration begins to take on a life of its own when it reaches the ears of motor-mouth gossip… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Stone gives a terrific performance, her knowing drawl implying intellect and indifference with underlying warmth."
‑ Anna Smith, Time Out
"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
"Easy A transcends the mold of teenage cautionary tales while still providing some serious laughs and genuine moments. It has a wildly fresh script that keeps you laughing throughout and Emma Stone is great in the lead role."
‑ Blake Griffin, We Got This Covered
"A star-making performance by Emma Stone centers this humorous look at rumor mongering and the modern high school experience."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"It does get by on lively energy, a creativity in its writing, and a star turn by Stone."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"As for Emma Stone, she didn't have to win me over. She conquered me from the first A."
‑ Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"An extremely witty, inventive, sweet and perceptive coming-out party for Emma Stone."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"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
"Stone has a glittering career as a leading lady ahead of her."
‑ Ben Rawson-Jones, Digital Spy
"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 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
"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
"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 "B" for effort and "C+" for execution."
‑ Dave White, Movies.com
"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
