First things first I want to let any parents that are thinking about watching this with there kids they should know that this film is all about a girl who lies about losing her virginity. The movie has lots of references to sex and even acts out a fake sex scene for the benefit of those listening outside the door. It follows Emma Stones character who gets herself in a pickle when she tells a white lie about losing her virginity. Though she was joking it didn't take long for the rumor to spread beyond her ability to control it. After she realizes that the lie seemed to be good for her reputation the lies keep coming. Emma Stone does a fantastic job in this movie. She is funny, believable, and perfect for the role. She also is surrounded by lots of great actors making this movie very fun to watch. The story itself does not really hold back and I would suspect that it didn't make the PG-13 rating by much. Overall this is just a good movie with a good story and great acting. Something I could see teenagers watching over and over again. I just hope that the teenagers watching it understand how serious they should take some of the topics in the movie and not just think that some of the more adult themes in the movie are just a joke.
