123. September 17, 2010 - Easy A (2010)

The idea behind this seems to be giving the same exposure to Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter that Clueless gave to Emma. They go about it slightly differently, in that in this movie, the main character Olive (Emma Stone, who is one of best breakout actresses in the last year, between this and Zombieland) talks all the time about the book and how she identifies with Hester Prynne. Overall it does pretty well. It's definitely funny and Olive manages to be endearing despite her borderline self-destructive behavior that the plot revolves around. Patricia Clarkson and Stanley Tucci are hysterical, though a little disturbing, as her free-spirited parents.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
