This movie stars Ellen Paige, Michael Cera, Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner.  It is rated PG-13 for sexual situation and language, and is an hour and 31 minutes long.

This movie is about a sixteen year old girl who gets pregnant after her first time of having sex.  She tells her family and decides to find a couple to adopt her baby, because she knows she is not ready to raise a kid being a kid herself.

This movie was really funny, which was surprising because the topic was so very serious, teenage pregnancy.  It could have been a dark movie but at just about every turn there were sarcastic quips and humerous remarks.  The father even says to his daughter when she comes home upset, “What’s a matter bloated, larger version of June-bug?”  This is what I mean by humerous remarks.  They go throughout the movie.

I can’t say I have a lot of negative comments about this movie.  It was fun, and the characters were all great and well developed.  The only thing I felt needed work was towards the end of the movie, we strated to focus a little too much on the feelings of all of the characters, instead of staying with out main character, Juno.  I felt that some of the end of the movie went a little off track and could have been reined in a little and still gotten the point across.

If you are looking for a smart comedy that is great fun and a little serious, go see this movie.  It reminded me a little of a movie I saw earlier titled Wristcutters: a love story.  If you like comedies that don’t rely on crude humor and fart jokes, this is the movie for you.
