Fashion Film Friday: Easy A

Nov 30, 2012

Easy A is one of my favorite movies because of three simple reasons: 1. It pays homage to the talented film maker John Hughes, who wrote The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Weird Science, and of course Home Alone. 2. Hello ! Emma Stone, gotta love her sarcastic sense of humor. And 3. Penn Badgley a.k.a Dan Humphrey a.k.a Lonely Boy from Gossip Girl need I say more?

If you haven't already seen this hilarious 21st century version of The Scarlet Letter you must do so. Emma plays Olive, who to get out going camping with her best friend tells her she has a hot date with a college guy, which was a total lie because she stayed home singing along to Natasha Bedingfield and acting a fool in her house. The next day Rhiannon, Olive's best friend, asks her how it went and she ends lying saying about losing her virginity, someone hears the lie and starts a rumor. And then all hell breaks loose and Olive has to pretend to have sex with her friend who is gay to save him from the high school stereotype. One thing leads to another and she ends up pretending to have sex with all the nerdy boys to save their reputations and in return she gets money and gift cards to the mall. She starts wearing the red A because in school they are studying The Scarlet Letter and she can relate.

That's not even the scandalous part, here it goes, so Micah, a 22 year old high school senior, yes super dumb but super hot, finds out he has chlamydia. Of course Olive being the good person she is covers for him saying it was her fault, when really she was just covering for her school counselor Mrs. Griffith, who was having in affair with Micah (yup he's that hot). But the reason Olive covers for Mrs. Griffith is because she is married to her favorite teacher Mr. Griffith and wants to spare his marriage. Yup scandalous but hilarious because Emma's comedic timing is amazing.
