Easy A Reviews
09.13.10 by reelz
While putting together our Fall Movie Guide, the high-school comedy Easy A looked promising, in spite of fact that director Will Gluck's first movie was the pretty dreadful Fired Up! Is Easy A another lousy teen pic or the second-coming of Clueless?
"...a high school romp that turns a stale genre upside down with sly wit and sharp satire."
— Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"As affecting as it is funny, there is nothing easy about what Easy A achieves."
— Alynda Wheat, People
"Much of the rambunctious teen comedy Easy A is delightful, much of it irritating. Your ratio will vary depending on your tolerance for camp — for the Glee-ification of teen (and tween) culture and its incessantly arch repartee."
— David Edelstein, New York Magazine
"Winking its way from start to finish ... doesn't generate nearly as many laughs as Bert V. Royal's script thinks it will, and thus Easy A ... soon becomes manic and unjustifiably pleased with itself."
— Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
