Welcome, movie lovers! Easy A is now on Netflix and I’m seriously so excited about it.
The film is one of my all-time favorite teen comedies and I’m happy that the streaming platform has finally added it to their collection. Easy A stars Emma Stone as Olive Penderghast, a high school student who typically goes unnoticed. However, Olive is soon caught up in a web of lies when false rumors about her promiscuity get spread around campus.
Set on embracing her new identity, Olive’s new facade soon gets more attention than she expected.
Easy A has a stellar cast. The film also stars Amanda Bynes, Thomas Haden Church, Patricia Clarkson, Lisa Kudrow, Aly Michalka, Fred Armisen, Penn Badgley, and Stanley Tucci. With all of that comedic talent, it’s no wonder that the movie is hilarious!
If you’re wondering whether or not the 2010 film is appropriate to watch with children, then we’ve got you covered. Without further ado, let’s get started.
Is Easy A appropriate for kids?
According to IMDb, Easy A is rated PG-13 for mature thematic elements involving teen sexuality, language, and some drug material. There are definitely some scenes in this movie that would be inappropriate for children.
Without giving too much away, one scene shows Olive and another high school student pretending to have sex at a party. In another scene, one of her peers tries to force Olive into having sex with him. Sexual identity and gender stereotypes are two of the film’s main themes.
I will say that I saw the movie when it premiered in 2010; at the time, I was 13 years old. Obviously whether or not a child watches any movie is up to their parent or guardian’s discretion. If you are on the fence about letting your child watch it, I would recommend screening it yourself beforehand.
