A surprisingly witty excursion into the world of modern American high schools. Emma Stone does a terrific job here, as does Thomas Haden Church, and, of course, Stanley Tucci delivers. The rest of the cast is merely OK. The writing is very sharp, and plot keeps you entertained throughout. Not your typical high school teen drama, this one actually had a deeper meaning to it. It was funny at times, and Emma Stone was terrific along with a strong supporting cast that gave this movie something I didn't expect it to have.
