Short: Excellent movie. My wife and I quite enjoyed it. PG-13 but not for kids.
Long: Take the Scarlett Letter, replace the heroine with a super smart, witty, and engaging teen, throw in absurd situations and you get an 80’s Hughes flick that even a GUY can like. With clever dialog, overt and subtle humor, skewering those that need a skewering and empathy for those that could use a bit, the movie moves steadily along to a predictable (but that is okay) conclusion – especially when they conclude it with a burlesque number at a school assembly.
Now… the whole thing is about sex. Not of sex. Not showing it. Not even really talking about it. But it is about it. So the PG-13 was a gift because there was no F-bomb. There was scatological and street cursing (beeeotch), but, it wasn’t gratuitous and felt appropriate to the characters and the situation.
Emma Stone aced her role, as did Amanda Bynes in a supporting role as a self-absorbed Christian. Oh… and you will not get Pocket full of Sunshine out of your head for at least an evening.
Go see it.
