Consensus: It owes a huge debt to older (and better) teen comedies, but Easy A proves a smart, witty showcase for its irresistibly charming star, Emma Stone.

Stone gives a terrific performance, her knowing drawl implying intellect and indifference with underlying warmth.

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.

It was funny. Like really funny, with genuine laughter, not those half-laugh, half-huff things that so many comedies settle for. In key moments, Easy A went for the gut-buster.

As for Emma Stone, she didn't have to win me over. She conquered me from the first A.

An extremely witty, inventive, sweet and perceptive coming-out party for Emma Stone.

While Easy A might not be remembered ten years from now like such films as Pretty in Pink, Pretty Woman, and Boomerang, but it's still a refreshing addition to today's genre.

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.

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.

Roe McDermott
Hot Press

Stone is a delight, Stanley Tucci is scene-stealing as her wise-cracking father, and there are some fantastic one-liners. But the overall plot is a mess of tired clichés, stupid characters and confused messages about sexuality and acceptance.
