The most overrated film of the year isn't bad, it's just trying too hard.

An obnoxious fantasy vision of teendom slathered in self-satisfied snark.

The artificiality of this beast is suffocating, choking itself into a stupor of unlikable characters, synthetic emotions, and overtly precious direction. "Juno" is pregnant alright: with overwrought execution and pedestrian intentions.

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

That Juno has been heralded for its realistic portrayal of a teen girl's point of view demonstrates how poorly the demographic has been represented on screen.

If this is where Indie comedy is headed, I guess I should find some other shenanigans to get into. Right, homeskillet?

Yes, I'll say it: this film is overrated.

You can't spend this much time being too cool for school and earn a sentimental rimshot--it's the boy who cried "human."

Too much of it is like a subpar episode of Freaks and Geeks, padded out to 92 minutes with pseudo-witty dialogue.

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.

A sweet-and-sour look at the traumas of teen life, and the way that sometimes, improbably, they can be transformed into small miracles.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Don't tell this to Jamie Lynn Spears, but there can be some humor behind a 16-year-old getting pregnant.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

It seems to be, at least to me, that Reitman has found a very distinct formula for successfully entertaining us with sharp-witted, off-the-cuff comedies.

...a smart and snappy antidote to the cretinous teensex movies that have become a staple of American cinema.

A bouncing baby that seems destined to grow into a classic.

A fresh, quirky, unusually intelligent comedy about a 16-year-old girl who wins our hearts in the first scene.
