From Back Cover:

"A Fresh, Unusually Intelligent Comedy."

Don't miss the outrageously offbeat comedy hit that has everyone talking - and laughing!

Juno MacGuff (Ellen Page) is a cool, confident teenager who takes a nine-month detour into adulthood when she's faced with an unplanned pregnancy - and sets out to find the perfect parents for her baby. With the help of her charmingly unassuming boyfriend (Michael Cera), supportive dad (J.K. Simmons) and no-nonsense stepmom (Allison Janney), Juno sets her sights on an affluent couple (Jennifer Garner and Jason Bateman) longing to adopt their first child.

My Comments:

Although it certainly has its moments, this movie is hampered quite a bit by its over-the-top attempts to be quirky - from the bizarre dialogue to the even more bizarre soundtrack. Fine performances all around make up for most of that, however.

Still, if you want to watch a great movie that deals with teenage pregnancy, a better choice would be Saved!
