* Easy A …easily my new favorite movie *


Screen shot 2011-06-26 at 12.47.02 PM

While I refuse to wear a friendship bracelet because I’m 35 and am taking a stand against reliving my childhood fashion statements, I have absolutely no problem at all falling ridiculously hard for Easy A, yet another movie about the trials and traumas of being a teenager in high school. With a touch of an homage to John Hughes & 80’s teen angst movies, Easy A is written so brilliantly with perfect comedic timing and a spectacular dichotomy between the “adults” and the “kids” you can’t help wishing you were right there going through all of it with them.

The cast is near impeccable. Emma Stone kills it. Penn Badgley as “Woodchuck Todd” fake gnawing on wood at a pep rally {scene below} wins as my favorite laugh out loud moment. Dan Byrd‘s fake sex scene portrayal is hands down, the funniest ever. Though he won my heart a few years ago playing Travis on Cougar Town so I’m a bit biased. Stanley Tucci & Patricia Clarkson are by far, the coolest parents on the planet. Though I’m at an age now that they’re the parents I wish my husband and I would become rather than the parents I wish I had.

There’s not much more to say without ruining the movie. Needless to say, I loved every minute of it. It’s definitely a must-see. But now that I’ve raved about how great it is I’ve probably set your expectations of it too high. So never mind, don’t see it. It sucked. {but you should totally see it}

Buy Easy A on blu ray here …or just wait for it to air on cable and DVR it like I did. And NO I don’t put it on every night to fall asleep to. Psht, I’m a grown up 😉
