Beca, a freshman at Barden University, is cajoled into joining The Bellas, her school's all-girls singing group. Injecting some much needed energy into their repertoire, The Bellas take on their male rivals in a campus competition.
Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon), a fashionable sorority queen is dumped by her boyfriend. She decides to follow him to law school, while she is there, she figures out that there is more to her than just looks.
After a little white lie about losing her virginity gets out, a clean cut high school girl sees her life paralleling Hester Prynne's in "The Scarlet Letter," which she is currently studying in school - until she decides to use the rumor mill to advance her social and financial standing.Written by
This film tells how a school girl uses rumours to advance her cool factor, but her publicity stunt spirals out of control.
I thought "Easy A" was about easily getting A grades, but that is far from what it actually is. The school girl in question bows to social pressure, pretends to be promiscuous in order to be cool, and to help some disadvantaged schoolmates along the way. How she helps Brendan in the bedroom is so hilarious, I laughed hard! In just a few days, her world is turned upside down, she feels differently about herself and everyone else feels differently about her as well. For a comedy, Olive's emotional roller coaster is portrayed convincingly. I also liked her open minded and supportive parents, although they have minor roles in the film, they provide a safe haven for her to grow up and become independent.
"Easy A" is a fun teenage school comedy with a great moral story. It even tells how social pressure makes us do regrettable things. It's easy for people to relate to the story, and that's a big contributing factor to "Easy A" being a fun and enjoyable comedy.
