Thankfully, Juno has been blessed with parents (J.K. Simmons and Allison Janney) who

Screenwriter Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman make Juno the marvelously un-still center of a wistfully acerbic comedy that qualifies as a feminized version of Knocked Up.

Fierce without being cruel, sweet without becoming saccharine, and never short of hilarious, it's not only the best comedy of the year, but one of the best films, period.

Juno comes on all wisecracking and aren't-we-clever, but don't be surprised if you find yourself getting choked up -- with happy tears -- by the end.

Juno is the best movie of the year. It's the best screenplay of the year, and it features the best actress of the year working with the best acting ensemble of the year.

By its end, Juno, in its guilelessly chatty way, touches the heart -- and yes, I had tears in my eyes. This movie works, on its own terms.

The best thing about this movie is that for all its wiseacre badinage, it's utterly believable about the most basic of human situations.

Sadly, while Juno may be able to carry a big bun in her oven, this film can't quite bear the heavy burden of expectation so well.

Indie film has the same success rate as Hollywood spectacle and for the same reason--reliance on well worn stereotypes and cliché--but it's the good stuff that comes along that makes all the dreck worth sitting through. Juno is the good stuff.

'Juno' is on some counts unrealistic and does not probe deeply, but it has undeniable charm.

Ellen Page's performance is the key to Juno's journey, and she unerringly nuances her character's blithe self-assuredness with just the right notes of uncertainty and innocence.

Juno is the best kind of comedy: one that makes you laugh, but not at the expense of your emotions.

Jason Reitman directs Juno with just the light touch it needs, and Page is surrounded by terrific supporting performances all around. This could be the sleeper hit of the year.

Even if you knew nothing of Juno going in, it's easy to pick up on the fact that the movie's voice is unlike any you've heard in a while -- it's totally fresh, in every sense of the word.

The fact that the film deals with teenage pregnancy - and doesn't preach at all - is a feat of filmmaking.

Juno is a great little movie, and its quirky, intelligent approach to teenage characters could teach a thing or two to the makers of teen horror flicks.

Being the hipster movie of the year presents a couple of problems. One is that hipsters are kind of annoying.

Don't tell this to Jamie Lynn Spears, but there can be some humor behind a 16-year-old getting pregnant.

There were many great films that came out around 2007 and 2008, and this one proved to be in the top tier.

After a fling with her longtime pal leaves her pregnant, snarky, witty, and smart 16 year-old Juno MacGuff decides to do the right thing and give her baby up for adoption to a seemingly perfect yuppie couple unable to have kids of their own.

It's a coming-of-age romantic comedy, that might be the best entry in either of those two categories I've seen. This is a very sharply written, finely observed film that is irresistibly heartwarming, charming, and moving. Though Juno is more of a stylized ideal than anything else, she represents the kind of teenage girl we need to see more of in real life. She's a good belng of being smart, yet far from perfect.

This was the "indie darling" of its year, but I don't see that as a bad thing. This movie is a great example of why I love indies from time to time. There's excellent writing (and thankfully the 'teen speak' isn't overdone), lots of heart, depth, and humor, and some great performances to boot.

I mean, you get top notch work from EVERYONE here, but especially Page, Garner, Thirlby, and Janney.

I know I'm praising this film a lot, and, while it is justified, part of why I love this film is that I have a personal and emotional connection to it. A little pain is involved, but despite some bitter-sweetness, this film is tied to an important part of my life, and I would be a worse off person without this film.

I highly recommend this, because, even though my connection to it can't be shared by everyone, this film is still brilliant without having such a deep meaning for me.

"Juno" is one of the most loveable teen films in the past decade. Filled with tons of heart and tons of light comedy, this film takes a simple story of a 16-year-old girl getting pregnant and makes it into this beautiful story revolving around character development, character chemistry, and learning lessons between right and wrong. This is not only a nice teen/dramedy flick, but it also serves as a school lesson for young teens and what problems could arise in these situations. Definitely one of my favourite films of 2007. I loved the unique direction and the script is very very well written. There is just so much to love about this little film!
