Trivia

The title has several meanings: the "A" refers most obviously to the "Scarlet Letter" of the book and that Olive decides to wear, and "easy" is derogatory, somewhat old-fashioned slang for someone (almost always a woman) who is sexually promiscuous; "easy A" is also an American phrase denoting a school, class, or test that takes no effort to excel at.

Goofs

When Olive's mother comes into her bedroom (and she's playing the guitar) the dog on her bed is chewing on a toy. In the next cut, the toy is gone. In the next cut, the toy has returned and the dog is chewing on it again. See more »

Easy A is the Most Smartest Teen movie I've ever Seen...Its Xtremly Witty, Clever, sharp & Out of the Box. Emma Stone Rocked it!
28 November 2010 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

EASY A – CATCH IT ( A ) Easy A is undoubtedly the best teen movie I've seen in recent times. It's extremely Witty, Clever, sharp & Out of the Box, which regenerate the whole new teenage world for us. Just imagine the teenage life we have seen in Clueless, 10things I hate about you and Mean Girls. Easy A is certainly a major step ahead in the life of vivacious and nowadays teenager's life. Besides the intelligent and brilliant cast, what makes Easy A more effective is its dialogues and storyline. Emma Stone proved that she was meant to do this role; she is witty, charming, funny and incredibly sweet. Emma Stone certainly stole the show and with help of some incredible young and some veterans supporting cast, she rocked it! In the end the musical dance number was a simply sexy & incredible. Penn Badgley is sweet & such a pleasant actor to see on screen. Amanda Bynes did a fine job. Aly Michalka was great, she was so blunt and outspoken, loved it. Dan Bryd is a great comedian, In Cougar Town and now in the movie he proved that this kid can make you laugh Big time. Cam Gigandet is Hot as Always. Now let talks about some veterans supporting cast in t he movie, I think it's the first time such big actors have works have worked in a teenage movie, where they have few scenes. Bravo for Will Gluck for convincing them to do the movie. Stanley Tucci & Patricia Clarkson, Wow Hands down they were great together. I think everyone would love to have parents like that, I wish they make a movie with these characters again some time, they were simply amazing. Lisa Kudrow is funny & mean. Thomas Hayden Church did a good job. Overall Easy A one of the best and intelligent movies of 2010, leave the teenage genre it's for everyone. Enjoy it!
