Day 53. Easy A (2010). Directed by Will Gluck.

Easy A (2010) score: 62%

As it stands, Easy A is merely chucklesome. It’s a soft 15, and allegedly some heavy cutting took place to remove some ‘F’ words and even ‘C’ words from the script. While I wouldn’t suggest that swearing = comedy, sometimes it benefits the comedy’s tone. It does feel like something’s missing from Easy A, and in its absence it’s often nauseating and Emma Stone is hard to swallow.

The bones of a great naughty comedy are there and it does very occasionally bare its teeth. It’s a shame that the filmmakers didn’t have the heart to go all the way with it.
