Easy A

The critical consensus

A strong idea that wanders out of focus in the second half. But it never falls apart thanks to Stone, making excellent on her early promise. Power to her.

***(*)(*)Total Film, 11/10/2010

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

****(*)Chris Hewitt, Empire Online, 18/10/2010

It’s slickly written, nicely played and, above all, fun without succumbing to preaching or gooey sentiment.

****(*)Alison Rowat, The Herald, 21/10/2010

Easy A is actually a cut above the usual high school comedy hijinks thanks to a refreshingly honest approach, uncommonly well written characters and a clutch of superb performances.

Paul Greenwood, Evening Times, 21/10/2010

A sharp teen comedy about a girl who pretends she isn't a virgin boasts a top-notch performance from Emma Stone.

***(*)(*)Cath Clarke, The Guardian, 21/10/2010

A high-school comedy that comes on both sassy and cute, dispenses snappy one-liners with abandon, and will likely be embraced by adults who can still recall the pains of being pure at heart.

****(*)Tim Robey, The Telegraph, 21/10/2010

Easy A is an admirable movie because, along with all the smart lines, it offers a strong idea, logically worked out. It's about how far you go to establish a value for yourself (or a "profile" in Facebook and Twitter country), before deciding that some things are nobody's goddammed business but yours. It's also a movie with a heart.

****(*)John Walsh, The Independent, 22/10/2010

I loved this movie - and its heroine.

*****Christ Tookey, Daily Mail, 21/10/2010

The result is a film with nothing to claim as its own except a wasted opportunity to showcase what its star might really do in a leading role more worthy of her talents.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 23/10/2010

This is the best high-school comedy since Mean Girls.

****(*)Daily Record, 22/10/2010

Not since Mean Girls and Election have the trials of a teenage school girl provided such entertainment.

***(*)(*)Kaleem Aftab, The List, 22/10/2010

Cleverly developed and sharply observant of high-school life.

Philip French, The Observer, 24/10/2010

Easy A is classier than its peers.

Nicholas Barber, The Independent on Sunday, 24/10/2010
