Line(s) of the Day #EasyA

emma-stone-easy-a

(narrating) Whatever happened to chivalry? Does it only exist in 80’s movies? I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me. Just once I want my life to be like an 80’s movie, preferably one with a really awesome musical number for no apparent reason. But no, no, John Hughes did not direct my life.

Congratulations to Emma Stone on her Oscar win for La La Land last week at the Oscars. Here she is in her breakthrough role playing Olive in the teen comedy Easy A (2010), which tells of a teen’s attempt to climb the social ladder backfiring spectacularly.
