Movie Moments: "Easy A"

I really love this movie... a whole lot!! Emma Stone rocks and she plays one of the most awesome characters ever. Here are my favorite scenes from "Easy A".

Moment # 1: Opening monologue
We meet Olive, a high school student who used to be invisible and as she says she’s a nobody. There are two sides to every story and this is her story. The right one.

Moment # 2: How Olive spends her weekend
Because Olive is trying to get out of spending the weekend camping with her friend Rhiannon and her parents, she makes up a guy named George who she’s meeting over the weekend. Than we see how Olive really spends her weekend. She receives a card from her grandmother playing the song “Pocket Full of Sunshine” by Natasha Bedingfield. Olive says it’s the worst song ever, but she starts singing it the entire weekend.

Moment # 3: “I’m adopted”
Olive, her brother Chip and their parents are sitting in the kitchen. When Chip tells Olive he likes her pants, Olive tells him he can have ‘em when he’s bigger. Mom Rosemary says it didn’t happen to her and Olive until they were 14. Than Chip says he’s adopted, so It wouldn’t be the same for him. Dad Dil says “Oh my God, who told him”.

Moment # 4: Abominable twat
When in class, Mr. Griffith is talking with his class about the book “The Scarlett Letter”. How the leading lady wears a red A for adultery. One of Olive’s classmates, Nina, gives here a sneer. Olive response: “You abominable twat”. With that Olive gets sent to the principal’s office.

Moment # 5: Grounding Olive
Olive tells her parents about what happened in school and that she got punished for saying a bad word in class. Because her brother can’t hear what she said, she has to spell it with her pees. Parents say it is a bad word and try to ground her, because they clearly can’t think of a descent punishment.

Moment # 6: Brandon loses fake virginity
After talking to Brandon, Olive makes a deal. She is going to pretend to have sex with Brandon, so everyone thinks he lost his virginity, because Brandon is actually gay and he gets picked on a lot.

Moment # 7: The red “A”
Because of the book “The Scarlett” letter and all the rumors going on in school, Olive decides to wear a red “A” on her clothes. With this she proves that she doesn’t care about what other people say.

Moment # 8: What happened to chivalry
While doing the livestream on the internet, Olive shares a thought. Quote: “Whatever happened to chivalry? Does it only exist in 80's movies? I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me. Just once I want my life to be like an 80's movie, preferably one with a really awesome musical number for no apparent reason. But no, no, John Hughes did not direct my life".

Moment # 9: Todd drives Olive home
After her date went wrong, Todd drives Olive home. She tells him everyone thinks she’s a whore. Todd tells her he never believed the rumors. When Olive finds out that Rihannon was Todd’s first kiss, she tells him she had feelings for him. Todd tells her he wants to kiss her, but she won’t let him. Not in this situation, Olive wants it to be perfect.

Moment # 10: Olive gets her 80’s movie
When Olive finishes her story, she tells everyone that Todd is waiting outside. She might lose her virginity, but when “that’s none of you goddamn business”. Todd is waiting with a boombox in the air like John Cusack, takes her away on a lawnmower like Patrick Dempsey and puts a fist up in the air like Judd Nelson.
