27th February: Easy A
An American High-School movie about a girl who tells one lie about loosing her virginity, which turns her life upside down.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. There are characters to relate to, laughs to be had and great performances to watch. Emma Stone leads the cast as troubled teenager Olive. Not only has she grown more attactive since Superbad, she's blossomed as an actress too. I liked her character and she did a really good job as the lead. Her nemesis, played by the equally hot: Amanda Bynes, matches Stone toe to toe with her performance. It's always nice to see Friends actors (not counting Jennifer Aniston as she's in everything) doing things and Lisa Kudrow did alright. After watching Friends for so long, it's hard for the actors to be anything else, now Kudrow didn't really add anything new to the performance but it was good. Now, Olive's parents played by Patricia Clarkson and Stanley Tucci. I love Stanley Tucci. I'v loved him in everything iv seen him in and this is no exception. He's just a funny guy and has one of my favourite lines of the movie ("Let's Bucket List this bitch!") Love It. I can't say i'v seen Thomas Haden Church in anything since George Of The Jungle (a quick IMDB later says he was Sandman in Spiderman 3, but i didn't like that one) but he was funny as the teacher. Final cast member is Dan Byrd. I liked his character, even if he wasn't in it as much as i would want, he made me laugh.
This film is fun. It's a tribute to old John Hughes films and definately worth a watch. Remember, 'You mess with the bull, you get the horns'
