The Score: 9 out of 10
Emma Stone makes me laugh. She has a natural affability and charm that immediately endears me to all the characters she plays. But she also possesses a priceless sense of comedic timing that turns the most innocuous character moments into hilarious movie gold. And Emma has a lot of help in this film from a surprisingly strong list of supporting actors and from screenwriter Bert V. Royal, who pens a brilliant part for her in a great film opening today: Easy A.
