Written by Bert Royal and directed by Will Gluck starring a young beauty Emma Stone, "Easy A" is an inappropriately funny fun flick. For those who remember John Hughes films that made Molly Ringwald and Matthew Broderick this film makes loving references to Hughes film but lack Hughes "sweetness. This flick is a blast with references to Google Earth and high tech use of spreading the nastiest viscous lying gossip. The heroine of this film takes to wearing a Scarlet A on her clothes in response although she has never committed adultery.
Why do people gossip and lie. Um, duh, because they hate themselves, they do not like themselves, they are jealous, where there is suppose to be a heart there is an inner toxic waste dump?
Anyway, Patricia Clarkson and Stanley Tucci play the ultimate cool parents of our heroine and they are hilarous and completely unrealistic not that anything in this fun film had anything to do with reality.
The harsh ugly dark side of real life lies and bullies is too ugly to talk about but if you want bawdy escapism this film is highly recommended with cameos by Thomas Haden Church, Lisa Kudrow and Malcom McDowell.
The beautiful Emma Stone plays Olive and move the letters around in "Olive" and you get I LOVE.
She is a (virgin) sexual Mother Teresa who isn't have sex with anyone but just pretending she is to help some desperate guys out with their ego. This doesn't sound like a funny movie but the writing is sharp and funny and Emma Stone is intelligent so she makes this movie rip.
It won't win Oscars but the movie will entertain you and how many women out there have felt like sexual Mother Teresas? Don't answer that question.
911 Tech Corruption
Scott Stringer is not qualified to be NYC gov comptroller but thanks to back room deals and fixing and favors he got the job. He removed John Liu's Press Release from May 31, 2012 asking for a criminal investigation in to 911. Cy Vance said there is no need for one. Truth is yes there is and we need yet another new audit of 911 and for years before the first audits we needed a criminal investigation in to 911 and we still do. We also need an audit and investigation in to 311 spending and Board of Election, NYCAPS, NYCWiNS, FDNY Wireless, etc.
