More Info:
  • Randy Cordova

    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.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Why, then, am I so pleased with Easy A? Because the movie, despite a few flaws, seems to have been made by higher intelligence, and because it catapults Emma Stone into a higher place reserved for American actors who can handle elevated language with casually dazzling aplomb.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    It's a funny, engaging comedy that takes the familiar but underrated Emma Stone and makes her, I believe, a star.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Writer-director Will Gluck has written a stiletto-sharp, zinger-filled script that recalls "Mean Girls" as well as the films of John Hughes, which are sampled to amusing effect in a clever clip montage.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Easy A not only makes the grade, but it comes in close to 100%.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    A movie that charms its way to being a kind of well-crafted teen touchstone that very well could become to today's generation what "Ferris Bueller" was to teens of the '80s.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Eric Hynes

    Judged on a curve, set by the testosterone-fueled raunch-a-thons that have dominated teen comedies from "American Pie" to "Superbad" and beyond, Easy A deserves an A+, with extra credit for lack of misogyny, c--- talk, or flatulence.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    A high school romp that turns a stale genre upside down with sly wit and sharp satire.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    You'd be hard-pressed to find a misfit loner as confident as Olive, who bears her considerable tortures with remarkable grace. But Stone is so funny, smart and sweet that we relate to her anyway.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Chris Hewitt (1)

    Arguably the best teen comedy since Clueless, it's easy to give this one an A. Well, A-.

    Empire Full Review
  • Pam Grady

    This is one of those movies in which the lead character is so self-possessed, wise, well spoken and witty, that she sounds far too adult to be a teenager.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    A thoroughly delightful surprise, after a summer full of dim and dreary comedies. Full Review
  • Andrea Gronvall

    Director Will Gluck (Fired Up!) shows wicked comic timing and uncommon warmth in an overworked genre.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    A surprisingly warmhearted examination of hypocrisy and social insecurity, unlikely camaraderie and stutter-stepped formation of adult identity.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    Gluck is not a visual storyteller. He depends entirely on his performers and their snappy dialogue.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Amy Biancolli

    Gluck also directed "Fired Up!," another teen charade with lots of quick-witted verbal raunch. Easy A does a few things better.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    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.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    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.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Easy A may not be a great movie, but it is a knowing and enjoyable one.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    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.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    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.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Screenwriter Bert V. Royal takes the oldest adolescence hook in the book - losing one's virginity- and turns it inside out.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Lisa Kudrow does a dazzling turn as a guidance counselor who's a flickering mixture of sympathy and narcissism. But the movie belongs to Stone, that gorgeous, husky-voiced redhead.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    Neither as smart nor as funny as it wants to be. With the verbal-cleverness dial set at 11, the teen comedy wears its glib cultural references - pop and 19th-century literary - in boldface embroidery.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    Easy A isn't nearly as good a movie as "Clueless," Ms. Heckerling's contemporary pastiche of the Jane Austen novel "Emma." But the one-liner-loaded screenplay has the same insouciant charm.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    I finally surrendered to the script's breezy intelligence and the movie's relatively mature sensibility. As for Emma Stone, she didn't have to win me over. She conquered me from the first A.

    Time Full Review
  • John Anderson

    What this high school morality fable really recalls is "Clueless" -- a comedy of very contemporary ill manners drawn from classic literature, an immersion in the young-adult lexicon and a potentially career-making showcase for its lead actress, Emma Stone.

    Variety Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Easy A has some agreeable fast banter, but it's so self-consciously stylized that it wears you out.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    The film is at its best when it isn't afraid to be earnest.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    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, played by the priceless Patricia Clarkson and Stanley Tucci. You mean girls can eat it.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    Easy A is unnecessarily hard on the religious kids. Unlike "Saved," it uses broad caricatures of gospel-singing fanatics to get laughs, and the bug-eyed, over-the-top performance by Bynes (who apparently really should have retired after making this film) doesn't help matters.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Kristin Hunt

    It does deserve points for casting and some clever humor, but falls short of the classic high school movie canon.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    Manages to waste the talents of its strong supporting cast, which includes Thomas Haden Church, Patricia Clarkson, Lisa Kudrow, Malcolm McDowell and Stanley Tucci.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Melissa Anderson

    As far as teen comedies informed by 10th-grade English syllabi go, Easy A, partly inspired by "The Scarlet Letter," is remedial ed compared with "Clueless" and "10 Things I Hate About You."

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    The script, credited to one Bert V. Royal, seems to have been run through an out-of-control sass machine (seriously, it'll make you appreciate Diablo Cody's tact).
