The Easy A Trailer Keeps Our Hopes High

About a month ago, I posted a teaser trailer for the upcoming Emma Stone film, Easy A, and wondered if perhaps the film was the next Mean Girls. The full trailer is here, and the film still looks very promising.

Just as Mean Girls tackled the issues behind the weird world of teen girl cliques, Easy A appears to mix social commentary—this time in terms of how virginity, and sexuality in general, is handled in high school—with humor and a touch of sweetness. If the previews are to be believed, the film takes from some of the best of the genre: the literary update used by Amy Heckerling in Clueless, the frank parental discussions regarding sex seen in Diablo Cody's Juno, and the holier-than-thou villain in Amanda Bynes, who seems to be modeled after Mandy Moore's character in Saved!.

So what say you, commenters? Are you still excited to see it? Or has the trailer not quite met your expectations?
