Emma Stone is the new Lindsay Lohan!

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?
