Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
As for Emma Stone, she didn't have to win me over. She conquered me from the first A.Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, 11.29.2010
Stone shows great self-assurance and considerable comic chops in a tour-de-force that that could have seemed smarmy and/or silly in lesser hands.Lou Lumenick, New York Post, 09.16.2010
In what universe does a supposedly unremarkable 17 year old high school student gain the attention of her entire school by losing her virginity?Charlie Lyne, Ultra Culture, 10.12.2010
Whatever else it accomplishes, the sassy high school comedy Easy A commands attention for the irresistible presence of Emma Stone, playing a good girl who pretends to be bad.Stephen Holden, New York Times, 09.17.2010
