14. AMANDA BYNES AS MARIANNE BRYANT IN EASY A (2010)True, Easy A seems like something you’d see on Nickelodeon and rapidly click off, but give the movie a chance. You’ll find, as we did when it was released last September, that Emma Stone’s breakthrough flick is actually quite smart and very funny. Like any good teen comedy, Easy A has a formidable villain: Amanda Bynes’ overly religious Christian wingbat Marianne.
Bynes plays the kind of God-fearer that Bill Maher would’ve viciously lambasted if given the opportunity while filming Religulous. She’s the head of the high school’s right-leaning church group, though her interpretation of the Bible is way off point. Marianne’s personal commandment: Thou shall spread rumors and gossip about Olive Penderghast (Stone). Oh, and also: Thou shall look rather hot while doing so. Let us pray.
