Watched this one the plane. Old story with a slight new twist. The saving grace is the chemistry between the cast, I think. Nothing really new here, just good to know those who returned from a war have …

Easy A is a 90's movie. More specifically, it's a 90's teen flick in every possible respect. If it had been released in its proper time frame, it would have tacked itself onto a 1999 release, getting …
