Film review: “Easy A”…

Emma Stone is the new Lindsay Lohan!

Emma Stone, (Olive), in "Easy A".

It’s about time Hollywood produced another sexy, husky voiced, red haired, teen movie star. Don’t you think? In any case, Emma Stone is brilliant in this film…

Despite the blatant “teen drama” classification Easy A has received, I found it to be pretty damn hilarious. Sure, you can say that my admittance about the film’s comedic value speaks volumes about my maturity level, but it was funny without being stupid and there’s nothing wrong with that.

With a backward and painfully obvious allusion to Nathaniel Hawthorne’s novel, The Scarlett Letter, the film has a successful and sustainable plot line. It certainly works, as far as a comedic-drama goes, and it’s definitely fun to watch. Nevertheless, the film brought me back to a point about creativity, in our day and age, that I have a big problem with…

It’s all been done before.

If it’s not based on a ‘kitchy’ eighties teen drama, or a classic story about the complications that can come from religious values, what is it? Is there any original thought anymore or are there just snippets of stories amalgamated to fuse an amusing comedy?

For me, I want to watch something truly original, (if there is such a thing). Of course, I didn’t go into the movie theatre this afternoon with the highest of expectations. I still think true creativity is something worth aiming for. Come on, writers, shoot for the stars!

Easy A is worth seeing, perhaps not at the movies, but on those nights-in to pass the time with the family. I, for one, am looking forward to what Emma is capable of doing with her acting career. Let’s just hope she doesn’t go down the same path as poor old Lindsay…

A pathetic publicity stunt? Let's hope so...

Peace,
