An “Easy A” sneak peek

Back in May, we posted a preview of the upcoming Emma Stone film, Easy A. Dorothy Snarker told us:

Emma Stone stars in the story of a high school nerd who fakes losing her virginity to a gay friend to gain popularity, only to find it has unexpected consequence. The comedy comes across as part Mean Girls, part The 40-Year-Old Virgin and part The Scarlett Letter. And the trailer makes the sum of those parts pretty darn hilarious.

The film, which also stars Patrica Clarkson, Lisa Kudrow, Alyson Michalka (of Hellcats) and Amanda Bynes, opens tomorrow, and now we have a sneak peek of the first 10 minutes of Easy A.

 

 

I typically have a rule against watching any movie that includes a musical montage in which the stars sing along to some sappy pop tune, (e.g. Stepmom and probably scores of other movies I never went to see because the montage was featured in the trailer.) But Emma Stone, slowly but steadily being driven into a depraved state of "Sunshine" by Natasha Bedingfield, is pretty irresistible.

I’m already a Stone fan because of (or maybe despite) Superbad and The House Bunny, so it’s nice to finally see her in the forefront as the star of the film. She has a wacky yet somehow earthy charm, and a hint of pre-off-the-rails Lindsay Lohan (I’m a Lindsay fan too, so don’t hate!). Did you catch her on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this week? She demonstrated the Shake Weight for a full 15 seconds, laughing,"It’s practically pornographic. This is filthy. I’m exhausted." She also told Fallon she thinks her house is haunted. By a redhead.

Here at AfterEllen.com, we often mention the importance of going to see LGBT, feminist and woman-centric movies on opening weekend just to help contribute to those all-important initial box office stats. Is the preview of Easy A enticing enough to get you out to the theater tomorrow?
