Director: Joe Drake, Jason Reitman Cast: Ellen Page, Michael Cera


When a teenage girl is faced with an unexpected pregnancy, she enlists the aid of her best friend in finding the unborn child a suitable home in this coming-of-age comedy drama from Thank You for Smoking director Jason Reitman. Juno (Ellen Page) may seem wise beyond her years, but after sleeping with classmate Bleeker (Michael Cera), the pregnant teen quickly realizes how little she really knows about life. Thankfully, Juno has been blessed with parents (J.K. Simmons and Allison Janney) who trust their daughter's judgment, and a best friend named Leah (Olivia Thirlby), who's always willing to help out in a pinch. With a little help from Leah, Juno soon comes into contact with Mark (Jason Bateman) and Vanessa (Jennifer Garner) -- an affluent suburban couple who have been unable to conceive a child of their own. Mark and Vanessa seem like they would make great parents, and are eager to adopt Juno's unborn child. Now, as adolescent Juno is faced with a series of very adult decisions, she will draw on the support of her family and friends in order to discover who she truly is, and discover that one bad choice can have a lifetime of consequences.

I love this movie. It really stayed with me, because it was all I could think about after I saw it in the theatres. It's the best movie of the year, and deserved to win best picture. The acting was phenomenal by the whole cast, and a special congrats to Ellen Page, Olivia Thirlby, and Michael Cera. As such young actors, they really made this movie funny and outstanding. I think that Juno was a strong, independent character, because when she found out she was pregnant, she didn't abort the baby, and she found adoptive parents before she even told her parents. The whole thing was very believable, and it was funny too. Even though Ellen Page didn't win for Best Actress, she deserved it! Love u Ellen! I recommend this movie 1,000,000% for anyone who hasn't seen it! AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is one of my favorite movies.

This movie made me think. It allows the viewers to enter the world of a scared teenage girl who finds herself pregnant without even being in a relationship. There is a strong push for pro-life and that hard decision that had to be made for such a young person. In this world that is rare to see someone honoring God-given life. The struggle is real, the temptations they show are real, the pain, shame and confusion is real. The unreality comes with the wonderful relationship that is formed with the couple after she's given birth. Sadly, it does not always work like that.

First off, yes, the movie is very well written. Its witty, clever, and often hilarious. The acting is fine. Their approach to the subject matter is pretty unrealistic. Whatever. This movie was no revelation, it wasn't shockingly good. Best picture? Not a chance. Not a bad movie, though. I'd watch it again if it was on HBO or something.

My Kudos to Juno man! This was an awsome movie. Sort of like Napolean Dynamite, except a girl version. This movie was extremely funny, quirky, and cute! Ellen Page is a phenomenal actress, and Diablo Cody is a marvelous writer. This movie has great catch phrases that everyone will soon adapt I'm sure. Go check it out!

It was ok. Having just come out of an unexpected pregnancy, I suppose I am a little biased in how I see this movie. Ellen Page and her on-screen boyfriend are delightful to watch. The characters are all very well written, but there's a point where you start to wonder, "Wait a second. Why are they ALL way too witty?" At some point, the excessive wittiness destroys the willing-suspension-of-disbelief. It was an ok movie... but I totally regret buying it when I could have totally gotten Darjeling Limited or something.

I loved this movie. I went to see it expecting it to be good but walked away amazed. The dialogue was witty and smart and showed another side of the teenage world. Although it might be a little unrealistic with the whole adoption process, it still won my heart over. You'll enjoy this movie from the get go.

This movie was a breath of fresh air. It was nice to watch a movie where the story was the focus and not the "production value" or special effects. I was thoroughly enchanted with the acting as well. Two thumbs up!

At first I had second thoughts about watching this... but after a long session of wondering wether i should follow my friends' advice and see it or just forget it. (i dont like the idea of girls my age getting pregnant!) but then i was just like, "OMG just watch it!!!" to myself. I ended up loving it!!! Yeah, it shows a bad example for some girls... because it makes it all seem like no big deal. but it was still really good. i would recomend this to anyone with taste!

I LOVED this little movie. Ellen Page was adorable and witty as Juno. I loved her best friend, by her side through everything. I think so many teenage films portray a harsh, combative relationship between teen girls and their parents, but this one showed a supportive bond between them. The movie both warmed my heart and broke it. Beautiful.

Although this story has its moments of angst and sadness, it peels back a layer of vulnerability on a 16-year-old girl who is forced to grow up too fast in a world that can be largely unkind, unfair and uncaring. You can't help but worry about her and hope she will eventually find her way - which she eventually does. Two thumbs up for the ending!

This film knocks the ball out of the park. It is exceptionally funny and also keeps its heart. A portrait of a real family and young love. The soundtrack is perfect and compliments the film perfectly. A must see!

Get past the few opening minutes with admittedly terrible dialogue and you'll find a humorous and heartfelt story that makes you appreciate what you have in life. One of the best films of the year. Highly reccommended for anyone.

This movie is definitely good for a single sit through if for nothing else than to laugh at the humorous displays of teenage pregnancies portrayed in this film. The lead "JUNO" gets pregnant and finds herself in a situation where she doesn't want to keep the kid. So she auditions for a couple to adopt her unborn child so she can make sure the new life being brought into this world can grow up in a stable family environment. What happens next is filled with a roller coaster ride of "Murphys' Law" "What can go wrong will go wrong" scenarios. I absolutely recommend this movie for anybody who really should think twice about getting knocked up before they're ready for the world of parenthood. Two thumbs up. GWATT
