I don’t really remember if Easy A was screened in Malaysian cinemas, but I knew I had to watch it.
Here is a plot summary from IMDb written by The Massie Twins.
High school student Olive Penderghast (Emma Stone) finds herself the victim of her school’s “rumor mill” when she lies to her best friend Rhiannon (Alyson Michalka) about a weekend tryst with a fictional college freshman. Word quickly spreads of Olive’s promiscuity and, much to her surprise, she welcomes the attention. When she agrees to help out a bullied friend by pretending to sleep with him, her image rapidly degrades to a more lascivious state and her world begins to spin out of control. As she helps more and more of her classmates and her lies continue to escalate, Olive must find a way to save face before the school’s religious fanatic Marianne (Amanda Bynes) gets her expelled and she loses a shot at attaining her own happiness.
Easy A is a movie that I would like to watch again. It is not only for the beautiful upcoming star, Emma Stone, but also the wonderful sarcasm that is imbued in the script.
I would love to say that Emma played her role as Olive so well with all the sarcasm and the way she plays the role really tickles me up (or maybe I just like her for her looks). There are a whole lot of sarcasm in the movie and she is like a genius at throwing them out in the open.
But this is the same for the rest of her family in the movie~!
Her parents played by Stanley Tucci as her father and Patricia Clarkson as her mother. They gave such a nice punch to the movie with lines after lines of sarcasm (maybe I am addicted to sarcasm – especially if its not towards me). They gave Easy A a nice kick to it with the conversation about sexuality and sex.
And what is a movie without the male lead to sweep the star of the show, off her feet, none other than the character Todd played by Penn Badgley who would be well known in the TV series Gossip Girls. Though he did not appear much in the movie, but during when he was on screen, he did his best to make an impact, but still fall short under Emma’s shadows. He would certainly be a eye candy for the ladies and girls in the movie, especially when he is the Blue Devil~!
Now now, wouldn’t you wanna catch it as well? Hahaha, well I like it~! And I believe that those who loves sarcasm, then this is a movie to watch.
Now onto the next movie with me~! Huhuhu~!
