Hot off the heels of my Glee review, in which I have made a weekly habit out of admitting my affection for singing and dancing, comes this first clip from the upcoming teen comedy Easy A, starring Superbad lady Emma Stone. The film follows a high school girl (Stone) whose life is thrown into a tizzy after a little white lie about her virginity is unleashed upon her school. She soon finds her life paralleling that of Hester Prynne’s in “The Scarlett Letter.” The only difference is that she doesn’t turn into a seamstress — instead, she uses the rumor mill about her sexuality to advance her social and financial standing.
Sounds twisted, for the most part. All of that is relatively moot in the context of today’s discussion, as this first clip — found via /Film — doesn’t appear to have much to do with the film’s plot. Unless the film’s plot involves its main character using terribly pop tunes in greeting card form to somehow advance her social status. No, this clip is simply about the adorable Emma Stone doing a humorous song and dance. Call it your afternoon diversion from arguing about whether or not the Avatar DVD is worth buying.
Easy A is scheduled for release by Screen Gems on September 17, 2010. It also stars Amanda Bynes, Cam Gigandet, Stanley Tucci, Malcom McDowell, Patricia Clarkson and Gossip Girl‘s Penn Badgley.
