Juno

A comedy about growing up... and the bumps along the way.


Juno
A happy-go-lucky 16 year old has a one-night stand with her friend, and ends up pregnant. When she decides on adoption instead of abortion, she is thrilled to find a seemingly-suitable couple wanting to adopt. However, as she gets to know them better, especially the husband, she begins to have doubts. Complicating matters further, she and her friend find themselves drifting from casual friendship into something more serious, all of which makes her dubious about the decisions she has made. The script won an Oscar.

Megan Kakora quote iconA quirky, heartwarming story that's so touching in its simplicity and weirdness you can forgive the odd boom mic popping into scenes.

Stella Papamichael quote iconReitman has delivered a bundle of joy.

Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconJason Reitman's Juno is just about the best movie of the year. It is very smart, very funny and very touching; it begins with the pacing of a screwball comedy and ends as a portrait of characters we have come to love.

eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconBarring any unforeseen late-trimester complications, it looks as if nothing can go wrong for this holiday’s best (and only) feel-good teen-pregnancy comedy.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconJuno is the kind of the film where a viewer almost needs to look for a reason to dislike it for it not to work. It's charming without being saccharine. It's funny without being rude or dishonest. It's smart without being smart-assed. And it's got enough heart to keep the comedic elements in check.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconThe devil in Cody's script lets in wit, anger, distress and the pain of romantic longing. Juno is more than a few smiles — it makes you laugh deeply. It's one from the bruised heart.

ScreenIt
quote iconAn enjoyable, highly entertaining, and even occasionally touching offering that takes a unique approach to telling the tale of a pregnant teen.
