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.

Modern day Scarlett Letter as gossip gets out of hand at Ojai High School.
2 June 2010 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

June 2 2010 - saw advanced preview of "Easy A" tonight. Emma Stone plays sarcasm great in this one, and supporting cast works well with her. Emma also narrates heavily throughout, and though not rolling on the floor funny, this has the feel of a John Hughes film (even makes reference to him in a longing way). Thomas Haden Church is funny as the only teacher we really meet, and Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson are well cast as the understanding and 60's hippy mentality parents. The crowd I saw it with laughed frequently, and there are a lot of "I've been there" or "I've seen that" moments that you can relate to from your own high school. The writing is a little bit above the age - that is to say, you'd be surprised to hear the advanced dialog coming from today's teenagers, but this movie worked for me and those with me. Makes for a fun night at the movies. Scheduled for release Sept 17 2010.
