Overview

Meet Juno MacGuff (Ellen Page), a confidently frank teenage girl who calls the shots with a nonchalant cool and an effortless attitude as she journeys through an emotional nine-month adventure into adulthood. Quick-witted and distinctively unique, Juno walks Dancing Elk High's halls to her own tune—preferably anything by The Stooges—but underneath her tough, no-nonsense exterior is just a teenage girl trying to figure it all out.

While most girls at Dancing Elk are updating their MySpace page or shopping at the mall, Juno is a whip-smart Minnesota teen living by her own rules. A typically boring afternoon becomes anything but when Juno decides to have sex with the charmingly unassuming Bleeker (Michael Cera). Faced with an unplanned pregnancy, she and best friend Leah (Olivia Thirlby) hatch a plan to find Juno's unborn baby the perfect set of parents courtesy of the local Penny Saver.They set their sights on Mark and Vanessa Loring (Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner), an affluent suburban couple longing to adopt their first child. Luckily, Juno has the support of her dad and stepmother (J. K. Simmons and Allison Janney). Juno's physical changes mirror her personal growth while the veneer of Mark and Vanessa's idyllic life starts to show signs of cracking. With a fearless intellect far removed from the usual teenage angst, Juno conquers her problems head-on, displaying a youthful exuberance both smart and unexpected.

To start off the review, I will agree that YES, the pregnancy situation that Juno is in is definitely NOT real-life. It's actually far from what real teen pregnancy is like. There was a review that was saying it was making fun of a serious issue, IT WASN'T MAKING FUN OF TEEN PREGNANCY. It was comical, that's all. The 'lil sayings they put in there like, "This ain't no etch-a-sketch, this is one doodle that can't be un-did, home skillet." is supposed to make you laugh, plus Juno's humour. I wouldn't reccomend this to anyone younger than a teen, and if you're stupid enough to believe that real teen pregnancy is like this then you shouldn't have ANYTHING to do with movies or books about pregnancy. Simple as that. It's for people who like a good laugh, and again, I repeat, IT'S NOT MAKING FUN OF TEEN PREGNANCY!

I am one of the very fiew teens that seem to hate this movie. I could give it zero stars if I could. It glorifys teen prgnancy and its trying to make it a cool thing which its not. Some people think this movie is funny which it really isn't supposed to be a comedy if its about teen prgnancy. I remember watching this last year in health and before I watched this movie I knew I wasn't going to like it which I was right.Its also to similar to Jamie Lynns situation. I recently watched the news and because of Jamie Lynn and that movie Juno teenagers are getting pregnant on purpose. If you really want to watch something about teen pregnancy or life watch, 'The Secret Life of the American Teenager.' It is a good show and it shows how awful teen pregnancy is and its not stupid like Juno. It also talks about other issues which arent to be laughed at.
