Even as they get worse and worse, I will always have a soft spot in my heart for teen comedies. Easy A, starring Emma Stone, looks like I may actually be able to like one again and not feel embarrassed. From the trailer, the plot looks to follow Stone who helps her gay friend pretend to lose his virginity. Word gets out, and others are asking for the same thing so she becomes known as a "slut" around school, only she isn't actually a slut. There's also a Scarlet Letter subplot where she decides to wear a Red A like the main character from that, but since I never read it or saw it when I was supposed to, I have no idea what that means since she isn't obviously an Adulterer.

The trailer is Stone talking to the camera (I guess via webcam, yay technology), so either this is for effect in the trailer or it's going to be a fully narrated film. Regardless, the premise is interesting, the trailer is pretty funny, and it's got an excellent cast (Thomas Haden Church, Stanley Tucci, Patricia Clarkson, Amanda Bynes...who looks like her face got stung by a bunch of bees but she's still hot).

Easy A comes out September 17, 2010.Let's cross our fingers folks and pray for a good teen movie to exist again.

I was going to post this but you beat me to it! It has the potential to be good, and such a good adult supporting cast! But ew the guy from Gossip Girl is so skeevy.

I think the point is that male adulterers weren't publicly sames the same way, so the scarlet A is a protest against slut-shaming - and also so they could make the bad pun in the title. Groan.
