Easy A

Emma Stone rocked our world when “Easy A” unexpectedly stole the scene in 2010. And how could she not? A sincere thank you to director Will Gluck and writer Bert V. Royal for your witty take on a literary classic that’s a marathon to finish. Few may know your names, but you did what took Nathaniel Hawthorn 500+ pages to do and just got to the point: we’re all a bunch of hypocrites.

The fabulous Emma Stone’s quip does not disappoint. And with a featured cast of all our childhood faves (shout out Amanda Bynes and Aly Michalka of Aly & AJ), you’ll be giving praise to a higher power for this comedic genius and wishing you could’ve handled high school with this much candor–or even looked that good in a corset. So grease your pans ladies, and get ready for some classic high school drama.

See movie description for details:

In this charming, critically acclaimed tale of rumors and reputation, Olive (Emma Stone), an average high school student, sees her below-the-radar existence turn around overnight once she decides to use the school’s gossip grapevine to advance her social standing. Now her classmates (Amanda Bynes, Aly Michalka) are turning against her and the school board is becoming concerned, including her favorite teacher (Thomas Haden Church) and the distracted guidance counselor (Lisa Kudrow). With the support of her hilariously idiosyncratic parents (Stanley Tucci, Patricia Clarkson) and a little help from a long-time crush (Penn Badgley), Olive attempts to take on her notorious new identity and crush the rumor mill once and for all.
