- The Collegian:
A strong cast of actors such as Bynes, Lisa Kudrow and Thomas Haden Church portray the witty dialogue of a well-written script by Bert V. Royal in this Will Gluck film....“Easy A” is a must-see movie.
Marianne [is] played with butt-clenching perfection by Amanda Bynes...
Gluck was really fortunate that this cast came together, because they're all so relaxed with each other, all so funny, and they all know exactly what tone to use to play this material. And with the young cast, everyone seems on their game. Speaking of Bynes...she was pitch perfect in "Hairspray," and she pins down a very different character here, making her Marianne a nice example of curdled Christianity.
Film School Rejects
The most fascinating stand out is now-retired actress Amanda Bynes who, as the school’s know-it-all evangelical Christian, can manage a serious crying scene and then go right back into the walking stereotype that she’s created. It’s the sort of foot stomping, face clenching performance she’s delivered before, but this time it includes a few sober acting moments that fit easily into the tone of the rest of the film.
