Easy A

This past Sunday I headed down to Culver City with some gf's to see the film Easy A.  Even though LSpry and I were almost kicked out of the theater for sneaking in iced teas (which we ended up having to dump in the trash - damn theater security), the film did not disappoint! 

First thing.  Thank goodness for one Miss Emma Stone.  She is stellar as the female lead Olive Penderghast, a witty high school student who pretends to be slutty to help misfits around her school fit in and be cool, all the while making her an outcast.  I won't give too much of the movie away, but I will tell you it has some great 80's teen comedy references, and a fantastic cast. 

I was also super excited to see this film since Miss Amanda Bynes is in it.  I have loved Amanda since She's the Man and am happy that she has come out of her self imposed "retirement from acting".  She is perfect as Olive's antagonist Marianne.  Snippity and composed and perfectly bitchy.  Loved it!

I also really enjoyed (however unbelievable they were) Olive's parents, played by Patricia Clarkson and Stanley Tucci.  They were present without being overbearing, but supportive and fun.  What I was a little surprised by was how sexy I found Stanley Tucci in this film.  He just looked super handsome?  Am I alone?  Anyone else find him attractive in this film?  Also Penn Badgley wasn't too hard on the eyes. 

If you love teen comedies and have missed a strong female lead since Lindsay Lohan in Mean Girls, I really think you should get out and see Easy A.  The movie will only take up 92 minutes of your life (if anything I wanted it to go longer), and most of it you will spend laughing or smiling. 

In the event you have never heard of this movie, check out the trailer below and then find a movie time at a theater closest to you.  Just make sure you don't try to sneak in a ice cold bevie.

I LOVED this movie! Emma Stone is darling and did a great job. Her parents were funny, but your right...a little unbelievable. I wish there would have been more with her little brother...he was funny too. It'll be going into my movie collection, for sure!

dude, i wanna see this! its getting crazy good reviews. when i saw the (extended) peview on mtv i thought it was like an mtv movie and not a theater movie.

cant wait!

ps. for the butternut mac and cheese, you just make it as you normally would, but instead of going heavy on the cheese, you just add pureed butternut squash-to give it that creamy texture! everything else is the same.
