Olive Prendergast is a smart good girl with a clean reputation. When she fibs to a friend about an intimate weekend with an imaginary boyfriend, and another girl overhears, it sets in motion a series of events that speak volumes about high school life.
Her flawless reputation gets ruined, but she seems unperturbed by this. In fact, word trickles through the grapevine, boys approach her, ask her to help out their love lives by agreeing to be their pretend girlfriend, and improve their reputations. At once this movie is part satire and part social commentary. If you have read the recent news about teen suicides, you will realise that your status and how are perceived are both important, in the high school setting.
An interesting analogy is drawn between this movie and the Scarlet Letter, where a woman's reputation gets ruined by a scandalous affair and she becomes ostracised and condemned by her community, even sentenced to be hanged. Olive wears the scarlet letter A with easy pride becoming her own social experiment. She gets ostracised, scolded by the moral police and survives. Ironically, other people get better reputations because of her bad reputation, and that's all it is - reputation.
It makes you wonder about the double standard between boys and girls. If a boy does the same thing, he's the man, he gets high fives, and gains status. You may wonder if she will be able to save her reputation, and how she would save it. It's a good thing to wonder.
Much hypocrisy gets exposed along the way.Read more ›
The Storyline: This goes through the day-to-day life of a typical high school student & the issues they may potentially deal with, such as fitting in, rumors & how word travels fast.
The Cast: Emma Stone is absolutely fantastic, she fits the role of Olive perfectly & I can't imagine anyone else playing this character. Stanley Tucci, Patricia Clarkson & Thomas Haden Church make this film even greater by having a rather unique relationship with Olive & it makes the film even more fun to watch; I especially loved Olive's relationship with her parents, it's hysterical!
The BluRay: It's great quality, no issues with watching the film. I never bothered to look at the special features, sorry!
Overall: I highly recommend this film for anyone 13 & up, there's minimal profanity & scenes which aren't too uncomfortable to watch together, so let your kids watch it, they'll enjoy it & so will you!
You almost wish you could do the same thing at the office ;-).
Overall - great movie. Very fun to watch. A great happy-go-lucky movie that was meant for sheer fun, light entertainment, and a positive warm-fuzzy feeling at the ending. I loved it!

Really amusing - great choice for cast. The story was a little weak but the acting more than made up for it.Published on Jan. 31 2014 by Theresa Shipticki
I feel like this movie would have given me more insights to high school and how to survive it. It hit me, like, right here.Published on Dec 26 2013 by Mandy
