December 10, 2007
Juno is a coming-of-age movie made with idiosyncratic charm and not a single false note.
December 7, 2007
Juno is not a great movie; it does not have aspirations in that direction. But it is, in its little way, a truthful, engaging and welcome entertainment.
December 7, 2007
A fresh, quirky, unusually intelligent comedy about a 16-year-old girl who wins our hearts in the first scene.
December 6, 2007
Strikingly written by newcomer Diablo Cody, Juno will get a lot of attention for its colorful dialogue, which is at times too ostentatious for its own good, but the film's sincerity is what ultimately carries it across.
December 6, 2007
With a charismatic lead performance from Page and a plaintive score of indie-rock songs, Juno seems poised to be the season's youth-culture hit.
December 6, 2007
A movie already reputed to be hipper than tomorrow night, Jason Reitman's follow-up to Thank You for Smoking is actually sweet, romantic and irony-free.
December 6, 2007
Tart of tongue and sweet of disposition, Juno offers living proof that crisp writing, graceful directing and an abundantly poised young lead can perk up a premise that's been bludgeoned to death.
December 5, 2007
It is certainly the feel-good movie of the season, and credit for that goes to the gifted [director] Reitman, novice screenwriter Diablo Cody and the film's sensational lead actress, Ellen Page.
December 5, 2007
Juno is hilarious and sweet-tempered, perceptive and surprisingly grounded. It's also a gust of fresh air, perspective-wise.
December 5, 2007
Juno, directed by Jason Reitman, is smart, witty, and engaging -- three ingredients that, when applied to any film, comprise a recipe for success.
December 5, 2007
The engaging story, coupled with the character's likable quirkiness, makes for a film bristling with vitality and heart, without resorting to glibness or sentimentality.
December 5, 2007
Hollywood's Woman of the Year is a pregnant 16-year-old, the incredibly hip, smart-mouthed and totally endearing heroine of the wise and witty Juno.
December 5, 2007
Juno respects the idiosyncrasies of its characters rather than exaggerating them or holding them up for ridicule.
December 5, 2007
Juno represents an almost magical configuration of very talented people with very much the same brand of whipsaw humor.
December 4, 2007
By the end, it's unexpectedly moving without ever once trolling for crocodile tears. It's a sneak attack.
December 3, 2007
Juno is the kind of movie all indie comedies wish they could be: light and lovable, perhaps a bit too pleased with the cleverness of its dialogue, but a small charmer nonetheless.
December 3, 2007
Prepare yourself for the Juno generation.
December 3, 2007
There is such a powerfully endearing spirit to Juno that I embraced this film from the opening credits, right to the end.
November 28, 2007
A blithe charmer balanced somewhere between a life-should-be-so-neat fairy tale and a life's-a-real-bitch tragicomedy.

November 28, 2007
The snappy, new wave dialogue and a sprightly cast that considers suburban insanity as normal as an addiction to nasal spray and one-calorie breath mints turns Juno into an incendiary comic spree.
