The Scarlet Letter is re-imagined as contemporary
Mary from Limerick, 27 May 2011
Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter is re-imagined as a contemporary high school comedy in this tale of a scheming student who plots to give her popularity a boost by painting herself the easiest lay in school. Like most high school kids, Olive Penderghast (Emma Stone) just wants to be popular. So much so than when her best friend, Rhiannon (Aly Michalka), asks Olive how her weekend went, the bored teen decides to whip up a spicy white lie just to make things interesting. But that minor exaggeration begins to take on a life of its own when it reaches the ears of motor-mouth gossip Jesus freak Marianne (Amanda Bynes), and in no time the entire student body is abuzz over unassuming Olive's unrepentant weekend of debauchery.Of course not a word of it is true, but that doesn't stop everyone in school from talking, and an amused Olive

I thought it was a great film, really enjoyed it and laughed through most of it. It seem a little long, but, other than that loved it.

I switched this off after 15 minutes. It was terrible. Every cliche you've ever seen in a film is there. Yeuch.

I enjoyed this, nothing that will change the world or anything, but a good movie that passed the time quickly.
