Prompted by her popular best friend to spill details of her boring weekend, Olive (Emma Stone), a clean-cut teen, decides to spice things up by telling a little lie about losing her virginity. When the high-school busybody (Amanda Bynes) overhears the conversation and spreads it all over campus, Olive is suddenly notorious but for the wrong reasons.
This is a great movie. I didn’t know what to expect after watching the trailer, but it went up in my estimations while I was watching it. Very entertaining with a different slant for the rom-com community.
Emma Stone is brilliant! She’s a fab actress in all her movies that I’ve seen, but this one is one of her best in my opinion. Her character is confident, sassy, and feisty, but all with a good heart at the end of the day.
The script is great and very entertaining. The fact that Emma Stone’s character kind of breaks the fourth wall through her video vlog as she explains how she got into her racy predicament, keeps the story moving at a good pace and brings us as the audience into the proceedings as well, helping to keep our attention. And it is actually funny as well.
Other notable actresses that make an appearance are Lisa Kudrow, Amanda Bynes and Aly Michalka - all with significant roles.
I highly recommend this film to anyone who hasn’t seen it. A+ (!)
