    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.
  2. 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.

    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.
  4. It's a comedy of crisp, mordant wit and quietly radiating warmth, as well as a coming-of-age story with a lovely twist -- you can't always spot the best candidates for maturity.

    An ultra-smart-mouthed comedy about a planned adoption that goes weirdly awry.
  6. As with "Sunshine," I'd call Juno a family film if only it didn't make teen pregnancy look so sporting. Instead, we'll settle for that rare bird, an indie comedy that uplifts – funny and smart, totally trying to be cool and succeeding, and heartfelt to boot.

    The movie has been hailed and marketed as this year's Little Miss Sunshine, but it has none of that movie's empathy and comic surprise. Too much of it is like a subpar episode of Freaks and Geeks, padded out to 92 minutes with pseudo-witty dialogue.

    A non-sterotypical movie, with realistic and appealing characters.

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.

    The surprise hit of the season has been conveniently tagged as this year's Little Miss Sunshine, which is both inaccurate and unfair. The surprise hit of the season has been conveniently tagged as this year's Little Miss Sunshine, which is both inaccurate and unfair. Not just because Sunshine is the superior movie but Juno has more going for it than just another indie film. Having said that, the reliance on one-liners can become tiresome. Only in Juno's relationship with the adoptive parents and the father of her child does the film come to life and show some true heart. Expand

    There was a total of 3 believable characters in this film. Juno MacGruff was not one of them. The dialog seems very forced and awkward.

If it weren't for the constant embarrassment I felt every time Juno opened her mouth, I could probably find this film more enjoyable. Expand

    All the hype around Diablo Cody and this movie had me dying to see it. First day - I'm there. Wow. What a disappointment. It is just All the hype around Diablo Cody and this movie had me dying to see it. First day - I'm there. Wow. What a disappointment. It is just dreadful. The characters all sound the same, none of it is the least bit convincing (not even as a funhouse mirror reflection of reality) and the humor has no snap. Terrible acting and soundtrack. It's just wall to wall bad. I can only assume all the glowing reviews are a byproduct of the feel-good-girl-power-breakout-screenwriter bandwagon. It happens sometimes. Remember how Nia Vardalos was going to take over Hollywood? Sorry... but the emperess has no clothes. Which kind of makes sense... Cody used to be a stripper. Maybe she shouldn't quit her night job.
