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.
September 18, 2008
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.

Reitman has delivered a bundle of joy.

Juno may look like Knocked Up's kid sister, but it bests it on all fronts from jokes to emotional insight.

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.
December 14, 2007
The best thing about this movie is that for all its wiseacre badinage, it's utterly believable about the most basic of human situations.
December 14, 2007
Juno isn't a film made in the bell jar of unlikely reality that is, far too often, Hollywood: It's a film whose attention to real-life detail is so fine, audiences will be hopelessly and happily lost in its story from the first frame.

Juno is unerring, compassionate and funny as heck.
December 14, 2007
That smart, hip, human comedy you've been waiting for all year? The one with dialogue like a sugar rush and performances like grace notes? It's called Juno and it just arrived in theaters. Go forth and multiplex.
December 14, 2007
It takes Juno about 15 minutes to calm down and get its joke reflex in check. ... And by the end you've fallen in love with the thing.
December 14, 2007
The film's forced quirkiness constantly threatens to derail the entire enterprise. But it keeps being put back on track by the apparently effortless performance of a great young actress.
December 13, 2007
Juno, the second feature directed by Jason Reitman, is far from great but it has qualities of feeling that lift it far above the ordinary.
December 13, 2007
What kind of movie is Juno? The rarity that plucks your heartstrings while tickling them.
December 13, 2007
It transcends its own genre. Only superficially a teen comedy, the movie redounds with postmodern -- but emotionally genuine -- gravitas.
December 13, 2007
Once [Page] - and her character - move beyond the too-cool-for-school act, Juno becomes something special, and memorable.
December 13, 2007
The movie is distinctive for its complicated emotions.
