Juno is an extremely quirky, funny, and sweet movie about a girl who ends up pregnant at 16 and is searching for the perfect parents for her unborn baby. Juno is a very independent and strong girl. This movie does not glamourize teen pregnancy and is not overly dramatic or fake which is refreshing. It portrays life the way it really is: imperfect, unpredictable, confusing, but nevertheless wonderful. I think that this is an important movie for teenagers to watch even though it may not end up being an absolute favourite.

If you can look past the quirkiness and kitsch, there is a lot of heart at the core of this movie. And if, like me, you happen to enjoy the quirkiness and kitsch, even better. Juno is set in Minnesota, but was filmed--where else--in British Columbia. The movie is rated PG-13 for mature thematic material, sexual content and language.

It was going good until they had the couple split up. It could not have had a happy ending. They had to destroy it. The movie is about a young girl who makes a mistake and tries to fix it. Has good morals all the way through until they, again, broke up the family.

The 2007 Academy Award winning film "Juno" follows the story of Juno MacGuff (Ellen Page), a sixteen-year-old girl who is in search of the perfect parents for her and her on-and-off boyfriend, Paulie Bleeker's (Michael Cera) unborn baby. With the help of her best friend, Leah (Olivia Thirlby), her supportive father (J.K. Simmons), and her tough-as-nails stepmom (Allison Janney), Juno finds the perfect parents in suburban thirty-somethings, Vanessa (Jennifer Garner) and Mark (Jason Bateman), who are trying to adopt their first child. Juno's quick wit and confidence may help her through the ups and downs of pregnancy. From raging hormones to changes between relationships, Juno faces more issues in nine months than some face in a lifetime. Diablo Cody's ear-to-the-ground slang used in her screenwriting gives "Juno" a more realistic dialogue that truly makes the film come to life. The strong and effective performances by all the cast help, too. Ellen Page is stunning with her delivery of each and every line she's given. She brings such raw emotion that no actress could tap into. Michael Cera channeled his sensitive side for his role, which definitely shows off his amazing acting ability. Olivia Thirlby's fun and adventurous as Juno's bestie, and J.K. Simmons and Allison Janney thrive in the roles of Mac and Bren, Juno's incredibly understanding parents. Jennifer Garner's performance is realistic and displays the anxiety of every first-time mom. Last but not least, Jason Bateman is on fire as Mark Loring, one of the characters that I believe goes through the greatest transformation as he becomes a father-to-be. Overall, I sincerely believe that the casting directors did a bang-up job, choosing actors and actresses that truly interpreted the characters they played. The film's offbeat score suits the style of the film entirely with songs like "Loose Lips," "So Nice So Smart," "Sea of Love," and "Tire Swing." In my opinion, "Juno"'s powerful writing, solid performances, and sturdy score make it one of the best, if not the best movie of 2007.

Good movie with a not so perfect ending. I liked the main characters edge. And I liked that it showed life the way it is: unpredictable.

I was expecting so much more. I guess all the hype ruined it for me and how unrealistic this movie turned out. Overall nothing special here but there are some funny moments.

That cutesy dialog and cutesy music almost made me bail in the first ten minutes. Still, I either got used to it, or they toned it down, because, the movie seemed more bearable (and even a tad insightful) by the end.
