Roger Ebert from the Chicago Sun-Times gave it an A rating. He said “It’s a funny, engaging comedy that takes the familiar but underrated Emma Stone and makes her, I believe, a star.” Lou Lumenick from the New York Post gave it another A. He stated, “Writer-director Will Gluck has written a stiletto-sharp, zinger-filled script that recalls Mean Girls as well as the films of John Hughes, which are sampled to amusing effect in a clever clip montage.”

Claudia Puig from USA Today gave it an A. She said, “Easy A not only makes the grade, but it comes in close to 100%.” Kirk Honeycutt at the Hollywood Reporter gave it a B+. He stated, “A high school romp that turns a stale genre upside down with sly wit and sharp satire.”

Amy Biancolli from the San Francisco Chronicle gave it a B rating. She said, “Gluck also directed Fired Up!, another teen charade with lots of quick-witted verbal raunch. Easy A does a few things better.”

Ty Burr from the Boston Globe gave it another B+. He stated, “Until it spins manically out of control in the last act, Easy A is a charmer, A high school satire with a lethally sharp script and a big, smart, adorable star performance from Emma Stone.”

Sheri Lindenat the Los Angeles Times gave it a B. She said, “Neither as smart nor as funny as it wants to be. With the verbal-cleverness dial set at 11, the teen comedy wears its glib cultural references,pop and 19th-century literary,in boldface embroidery.”

Stephen Holden at the New York Times gave it a B. He stated, “Easy A isn’t nearly as good a movie as Clueless, Ms. Heckerling’s contemporary pastiche of the Jane Austen novel Emma. But the one-liner-loaded screenplay has the same insouciant charm.”

Owen Gleiberman at Entertainment Weekly gave it a B-. He said, “Easy A has some agreeable fast banter, but it’s so self-consciously stylized that it wears you out.” Peter Travers at Rolling Stone gave it a B-. He said, “The jokes are hit-and-miss. But Stone is one sassy babe and a breakout star who nails every zinger and brings genuine warmth to her scenes with her parents, played by the priceless Patricia Clarkson and Stanley Tucci. You mean girls can eat it.”
