Every once in a while a fabulous teen flick graces our screens, we have seen the hilarious Drop Dead Gorgeous, Mean Girls, She's the Man and recently 17 Again. Like many teen films before Easy A is a reinvention of a classic tale, in this case The Scarlett Letter, it centres around teenage Olive (Emma Stone), who concocts a lie and then embraces it once spreading through the school like wildfire.
The reason this film is so enjoyable is due to the wonderful cast and fresh and witty script. Not only is Emma Stone a wonderful comedic leading lady but the presence of a who's who supporting cast including Stanley Tucci, Patricia Clarkson, Lisa Kudrow, Brooklyn Dan and the amazing Amanda Bynes leave it a cut above the rest. The script is clever and makes for laugh out loud cinema fun.
I don't have any other way to convince you to see this film except if you have enjoyed any of the films I mentioned earlier you must see this film. You wont regret it!
Although I have been singing I've got a pocket, got a pocket full of sunshine for a few weeks now and I kind of regret that...
