Considering it's only one sentence to go on, the accent is okay. Not great but not horrible.

@Chris I remember hearing good, but also bad Critic about her Accent, so it would fit the "Not great, but not horrible" since this is her first Post Potter Role I think we will hear mixed Reviews

Just one Question: Is this Music really for the Trailer or is this just MTV? I don't know, but I don't like the Music for this

For her first time speaking in an American accent, I think it's good. It's not horrible, but it's not flawless either. If she works on it, I think she's going to nail it if she does another American role.

I've also read a couple of reviews of Perks from advanced screenings. A lot of people said she did a good job as Sam and her accent was pretty good. Some said there were many words that she just couldn't say very well. Mixed reviews are better than mostly negative.

I guarantee, every single actor who has had to do another accent has probably gotten at least one bad review over it in the beginning. I hope she gets good reviews for this movie, but I wouldn't take bad reviews over her accent too seriously.

EMMA. She looks like she did an incredible job with this role and is everything I expected Sam to be from reading the book, and i've got all that from a tiny little teaser!

Mph. The accent is okay, but I have to say, I'm SO glad that's not her real voice, it sounds like it could get annoying after a while.

There is 5 seconds of emma and logan. Why don't we wait until we see the entire movie before we start saying how awesome it is or how her accent was. The people commenting on youtube were getting ready to give her an oscar, lol.

Sometimes I hear my fellow americans speak their american accent and I cringe. I think that the English language is flexible for many kinds of accents. America is the melting pot of the English language. I'm not saying that US English is bad, I'm just saying its flexible. Did you know that Japanese perfer the midwest English in learning English to the Oxford English. So be flexible!

Americans speak the southern twang, the midwest brawl, the eastcoast chop, the westcoast sing song, so what else is there?

@anon 16:00-I agree 100%. The American accent is so diverse. I, too, think it is one of the most flexible accents in the world. Each state has their own dialect, their own way of saying things. Her accent really is better than most Americans.

I can't understand half the things they say in the South (Texas, Louisiana, Georgia, Tennessee, etc...) California is known for the Valley Girl accent (think Kardashians). In New York and New Jersey, we all sound like we're from Brooklyn (except Long Island has a sort of accent of it's own.) People from Minnesota sound like Sarah Palin.

If Emma were just an average Joe, everyone would be saying her accent is flawless. Because she's an actress, everyone's going to listen intently for a badly pronounced word.

@anon 2:01:00-You're right, America really does have 4 main accents. The thing is, within each part of the country, each individual state has their own accent within them.

It's almost like Italy, where each region speaks their own Italian dialect (except it's with accents.)

The american english that emma speaks is very clear and doesn't have snarls or swallows. It is very well spoken. I think she could pull off a southern belle if she had to. But her Engish is appropriate for Philadelphia or any East Coast area. I lived in NJ for a while, now that was a lesson.

Emma has good voice and diction. Anybody who understands and is educated in the English language knows that the language is flexible. That is one reason why actors like to study English, not just for the literature and creative writing but for an understanding of the language which is important for their career. Acting is language precision. Most good actors/actresses are usually well educated. (Of course there are exceptions because of exceptional talent, but even they have to hone their craft.)

Her accent was understandable. I like it.

I love emma's voice so sweet , calm and comfy !! and I think she did great job with her american accent !! ..

Her accent isn't very good, tbh. There are English actresses, like Carey Mulligan, Rebecca Hall etc that do it much better. Mulligan has less training than Emma has, so there is no excuse. For some reason, the English are better at doing American accents, than Americans are at doing English accents (Anne Hathaway's awful accent in One Day comes to mind)

Guys, don't stan. It's okay for her to be bad at something, you know.

Everyone has his own opinion , if you don't think her accent is good it's up to you , but I really like it !!

Anyway the movie isn't about her accent !

You can tell when she says "everyone" that her british accent is there still but she did a fantastic job.....It must be hard to do another accent in a whole movie...Man i have to meet this girl..the only celeb i have ever really cared for.

Emma's american accent is really impressive !!! We must admitting that !

Oh come on people her accent really good !!! her performance during these seconds made me more excited for the whole movie to come out already !!!

She is incredible ! !

Her accent seems fine. I doubt she sounds like a native of Pittsburgh but even the other American's in movie won't either.

I don't actually care about anyone's accent in this movie. What I want to know is why did Charlie steal Bill's line? I think it was when Charlie was telling Bill about Mary Elizabeth (who Charlie doesn't really like that much) and Bill says: "Charlie, we accept the love we think we deserve."

So Charlie uses this line with Sam? Come on Charie! What's up with that? Your the smartest person in the book, come up with something original.

Just kidding! If an author sells the rights to a book and Hollywood changes a bunch of things, then that could suck for a purist fan of the book. If the author writes the screenplay and then directs the movie then they can do whatever that want.

Emma speaks a good, precise american accent- or rather she is speaking good English and there is no shame in that. She may have a british tilt to some words, but hey go to Wisconsin and Ohio and you will find people,(and not just a few) who have been there for generations that have a slight German tilt to their English.

@ Tine with a D. will you please post the links to the reviews that you mentioned? i'd like to read them too. thank you.

I'm from the Northeast, and her accent sounded just right to me. Which makes sense considering she went to american uni in the Northeast, and PA (where perks was filmed) is basically in the northeast. Beside it's one sentence! ...one can't compare it to other British actresses yet.
