Becky and I went to see Juno
Keith dvd at the Kerasotes theater in Castle Rock, Colorado this past weekend. The Yahoo website at Juno describes the movie as follows:
“Juno is a whip-smart teen confronting an unplanned pregnancy by her classmate Bleeker. With the help of her hot best friend Leah, Juno finds her unborn child a “perfect” set of parents: an affluent suburban couple, Mark and Vanessa, longing to adopt. Luckily, Juno has the total support of her parents as she faces some tough decisions, flirts with adulthood and ultimately figures out where she belongs.”
Juno is a great little independent film with plenty of laughs and emotion from start to finish. Sure, it’s very unrealistic that this girl would actually respond to life the way she does, but who cares, the situations and the way the imaginary world that has been created unfolds in this movie is fantastic.
We went with our friends Rod and Kimberly and we all enjoyed it. It’s one of those movies that will have you talking about it at the end of the film and making comments about how clever it was done. Kind of like a “Meet The Parents’ movie where nothing is very realistic, but it’s hilarious because of the way the characters respond to one another.
The writer of this script deserves an award because there wasn’t one character in this movie that you couldn’t relate to in some way. From the desperate yuppie couple wanting to adopt a child, to the dysfunctional family Juno comes from, to her “get a clue” cheerleader girlfriend, and her nerdy boyfriend, these people are a riot.
Juno is definitely one of the best films of the year in my opinion. At least, it’s the best Independent film I’ve seen this year and I would say it’s a don’t miss it. However, there are some people that won’t relate to the humor or the story and others who will stick up their nose at it. Nevertheless, I think most people will get a kick out of this flick.
