Juno - Movie mini-review

Just went and saw Juno on the weekend, and I must say, I was very suprised and HIGHLY enjoyed the movie.

It was a welcome change to the teeny movies of late that are flat and pointless. I havent seen Ellen Page in much, but she has done a brilliant job, and is a breath of fresh air in a world full of Britanys, and Paris's...

The movie is based around the pregnancy of Juno to Paul Bleeker (played by Michael Cera of Superbad fame). Out of an unspoken love and sheer boredom the two have sex, which begins the story. Juno is faced with many choices in regards to the pregnancy, and decides that she will put the baby up for adoption once it is born.

This movie is absolutely hilarious, mostly due to the part played by Page, and her amazing wit and personality. However the movie also portrays well the difficulties and realities faced with teenage pregnancies.

Combined with the brilliant supporting roles by J. K. Simmons and Alison Janney as Juno's parents, Juno is a laugh a minute classic-to-be.

A movie that makes you laugh one minute, and want to cry the next, Juno is for anyone, and I mean anyone. A must see this year. You can bet there will be a new spate of repeatable one-liners to come from this movie to rival even the most hardcore Borat fan.

Best part: Any and all of the witty one liners that emerge from Page's mouth.

Worst part: The runners and their bouncing 'junk' (even though it was hilarious).
