EASY A is not a film I’d recommend. If you haven’t seen it, you aren’t missing much. If you enjoyed MEAN GIRLS, you’ll probably like it but even then, you shouldn’t expect it to live up to that kind of greatness.

Every once in a while there is a movie that gnaws at me so much that I eventually give in and sit down to watch it. TAKERS was one of those films. I can’t pin point exactly when the idea implanted itself in my head but I [...]
