3) EASY A
And on the third number we have my personal favorite, Easy A. This film features actress Emma Stone, who plays a high school student Olive. She being a clean-cut teen, decides to spice things up by telling a little lie about losing her virginity to her best friend, that spreads over the school like fire. Watch this movie to learn how boys around campus start asking her for favors which ends up ruining her reputation.Best part? The entire film is in story format, being told by Olive herself on her webcam.
