In this movie, Emma Stone emits perfect comedic timing and is supported by an amazing cast to back her; although, she may not have needed them. Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson star as her understanding , yet hysterical parents, who help her find her way. Also, there are big name actors like Thomas Haden Church, Lisa Kudrow and Malcolm MacDowell who star as faculty members in this movie.
Along the way there were well thought out dramatic twists to throw the viewers a curve ball and to give them something different from typical, mundane comedy. The director, Will Gluck, portrays high school in a light that many others cannot do. His writing was clever and spontaneous, which helped in many aspects of the movie. The real story of this movie was focused on its star, Emma Stone. Her humor and facial expressions throughout the movie are transcendent. I’ll be surprised if she is not in more movies after this. Overall, I would give Easy A an "A-" for its outstanding acting and marvelous script.
