I have been looking forward to this weekend for SO many reasons. Firstly, because I was going to get to see my cousin, Ben, do a speech in Austin... (Which was great). Secondly, because Keira Knightley's first movie in what feels like a BAJILLION YEARS, "Never Let Me Go," was being released this weekend... Sadly, however, it's not in Texas yet! And thirdly, THIS MOVIE, "Easy A!" I cannot begin to explain what a crush I have on Emma Stone... And this movie FINALLY allows her to be the center of a attention!
Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson). They were so hysterical. And I'm rambling, but whatever!
Overall, I would say this movie held its own very well, even with the hype and the comparisons to "Means Girls," etc. The modern day take on The Scarlett Letter was done really well and it worked. And lo! it may actually help a few of my fellow teachers from my school, who have a hard time making that book relevant to their juniors, present it this year. The movie isn't perfect; there was a musical number that was irritating to me even though they tried to joke that it was, in fact, pointless (Just because you know it doesn't fit and you identify it in the film doesn't make it ok), but it never lost me. Not once! I was entertained the whole time, and I LAUGHED a LOT! Win win win! Go see this movie! It's great.
P.S. 'Trollop' is my new favorite word.
