Juno MacGuff is sixteen years-old who after a one-time sexual encounter with her best friend Paulie, learns that she's pregnant. Juno and Paulie like each other, but not enough to start a family, complete with a child. Paulie leaves all the decisions about the baby to Juno. Initially she decides to have an abortion, but can't go through with it. So she decides to have the baby and give it up for adoption. The next step is to find prospective parents for the yet unborn child. In the Pennysaver ad section, Juno finds Mark and Vanessa Loring, a yuppie couple living in the suburbs. Juno likes the Lorings and of her own choosing, she enters into a closed adoption contract with the Lorings. During the second and third trimesters of Juno's pregnancy, which she treats with care but detachment, her relationships with her family, with Paulie, and with the Lorings develop.

Unique

I really enjoyed this movie. The soundtrack is original and the characters of Juno's family are great.

Overrated

Not funny with an unsympathetic and grating main character. The plotline with the adoptive father is skeevy. One of those strange films that captured everyone's attention for a while and now is no longer talked about.

Great!

Ellen Page did a wonderful job with the role. She played it perfectly. I absolutely adore this film.

Funny

It made me buy a hamburger phone.

awesome

different and funny

Great comedy

I love this film it is pitch prefect in its comedic timing. Ellen page is absolute perfect as Juno and she deserved the oscar nomination she got for this film. This fiml is a must watch.

Great

This was a very unique movie about the life a pregnant teen. Not groundbreaking but it was really fun to watch.

Okay

It was cool.

good...but not great

This wasn't the best movie i've ever seen

Gag me

This film is so overrated its not even funny.

Great Movie

I think that "Juno" is one movie that really lives up to the hype: it is a touching comedy about a teenager in a difficult situation, with a huge heart and the kind of rapid-fire dialogue we only wish we were cool enough to spout during high school. What I appreciate most about the film is the way that it engages extremely difficult issues without becoming overly preachy or trying to convince anyone of a particular point of view; indeed, I think this is an extremely genuine movie that has a chance to actually engage teenagers. It's important that movies like this get made, movies that can interest and talk to teens on their own level without becoming preachy or condescending. Being in high school is hard enough, and being pregnant is (I have to expect) infinitely more difficult, and to have a realistic, but positive, story like Juno's is really important. Sure, the dialogue was unrealistic, but I think that adds to the effectiveness of the film: don't we all want to think we were that person? I think this movie is absolutely worth its Academy Award nominations, and that it will remain a teen classic for quite a while.

Really enjoyed it

I watched it yesterday (election day! :D) and it's definitly one of the best movies I've ever seen, plus, Ellen Page is in it and and thats a HUGE plus ;)

5/5 stars

produce

subject matter suitable for after school special it's, an odd study sorting through scripts it might have been chosen, but as much is highlighted! Very post modern staging & shooting center piece production as watchable, but at a dating quality of writing belonging to previous well worn path perhaps it's quality of crew that produces this artifact! But, if muscle memory were visual?

It’s about growing up…and doing what you have to do!

Life isn’t the same for everyone, and in many ways Juno isn’t for the mainstream… so it’s a bit of a surprise that it was so popular, that it got the attention that it did, and that people so readily embraced it. I tend to think of the phenomenon as what I like to call the Duckie Effect (named for Pretty in Pinks Duckie Dale)… which is to say that Juno is everything that people want to believe that they like, that they are attracted to… but you give them the real life version of Juno and they run as far away as possible, or act like a bunch of judgmental Nazis.

The film is whimsical, it’s fun, it’s filled with the odd ball kind of underground/outsider cynicism that a small pocket of people in every community exhibit. It’s the story of a pregnant teen and how SHE steps up to deal with her situation. She is smart enough to know that she is still a kid, has enough heart to know that she wants the baby to end up with a good family, and has enough of a sense of humor (some time’s dark humor) to know that she has do some pretty grow up things while navigating a world that, let’s face it… doesn’t know what to do with a girl who isn’t falling into the places that she is supposed to.

Also I have to add, that having lived in Minnesota for a couple of years, that this film struck a cord with me in the way that local culture, expectations, and regional madness are all talked about and covered in this film….. plus who doesn’t love a spunky girl who thinks Sonic Youth Sucks (which they do) and listens to Mott The Hoople?

Juno - how did it ever get nominated for Best Picture

Juno, directed by Jason Reitman, is, more or less, a female-center imitation of Knocked Up. If you like unnecessarily crude and coarse language by 16 year old, then this movie is for you. I've seen all of the Oscar Nominated Best Picture nominees, and this is, by far, the worst. Sweeney Todd, Eastern Promises and Across the Universe have either better acting, better plots or are higher quality movies. Referring to breasts as "fun bags" is not humor, in my estimation. Referring to an "in utero" baby as the "bastard" by her best friend in a jaded tone of voice is not funny. And, as if this wasn't bad enough, her parents also spoke the same way. The jacket on the film called the film hilarious. Most of the "humor" is of the sort shown above. I would NEVER recommend this film to anyone.
