  1. 100
    A fresh, quirky, unusually intelligent comedy.
  2. 100
    Hollywood's Woman of the Year is a pregnant 16-year-old, the incredibly hip, smart-mouthed and totally endearing heroine of the wise and witty Juno.

    A confluence of perfection in every aspect of the film.

    With its original performances that can't be reduced to simplistic labels, Juno is charming, honest and terrifically acted.
  5. A blithe charmer balanced somewhere between a life-should-be-so-neat fairy tale and a life's-a-real-bitch tragicomedy, leaves political debate at the ticket counter and focuses solely on what it's like for Juno MacGuff to be Juno MacGuff.
  6. A witty little comic gem with a heart and a soul.
  7. At its best, Juno is about the messy things in life that are not so easily summarized.
  8. 90
    Juno respects the idiosyncrasies of its characters rather than exaggerating them or holding them up for ridicule.

    With a charismatic lead performance from Page and a plaintive score of indie-rock songs, many of them by Kimya Dawson of the Moldy Peaches, Juno seems poised to be the season's youth-culture hit.
  10. Not only gives us a superb new cast of believable characters, it transcends its own genre. Only superficially a teen comedy, the movie redounds with postmodern -- but emotionally genuine -- gravitas.
  11. 90
    Juno is a coming-of-age movie made with idiosyncratic charm and not a single false note.
  12. 88
    There's a special kick that comes in finding a new star. So step up, Ellen Page, and take your bows.
  13. Ellen Page is key to its success, as much as Cody, or director Jason Reitman.
  14. Like its heroine, the film's glib - and sometimes sidesplittingly funny - patter at first diverts viewers from its poignant insights. Happily, as Juno grows in experience and maturity, so does the film.

    That smart, hip, human comedy you've been waiting for all year.
  16. 88
    Juno has a great heroine and is blessed by a screenplay that doesn't try to do too much and finds the perfect ending.
  17. A funny and sincere indie about what happens when an acerbic teen finds herself "in a fat suit I can't take off."
  18. 83
    It comes off as calculatedly irreverent at times, and its Wes Anderson-isms are too precious by half, but its sweetness is genuine and next-to-impossible to resist.

Ellen Page is the only person who could have done this part. The movie shows how fun life can be, while blending that with the up and down rollercoaster of teenage life. I cried when she had the baby because I knewthat even though the baby was not going to be brought up by Juno, that she was still eternally, and forever the baby's mother Full Review »

    I don't think that the movie is so bad... you can sit there and just let everything go. but by no means is it the most brilliant show I don't think that the movie is so bad... you can sit there and just let everything go. but by no means is it the most brilliant show ever. and yes the script can get a little annoying!! however Genny T there is no need to call people who don't like it uneducated... i have a brilliant education and the movie only scored a 6 for me so.
