The movie stars Emma Stone as Olive, a girl who sorta accidentally gets a reputation, and features Penn Badgley, Amanda Bynes, Thomas Haden Church, Cam Gigandet, Lisa Kudrow, Malcolm MacDowell, Aly Michalka and Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson as Stone’s parents, who steal every scene they’re in.
