Quick Movie Review: Juno

So the wife and I spent some quality time in front of the ol’ TV last night.  Our viewing preference?  The Oscar-nominated movie, Juno.  You know what?  It was pretty good.  “Good”, mind you — not great.  We laughed quite a bit and generally enjoyed a few of the characters in the film.  Was it Oscar-worthy?  Not in my opinion.  I also take exception to the PG-13 rating of this movie.  Call me a prude (really… go ahead… call me a prude… I *dare* you!), but this movie definitely has some “adult themes” that 13-year-olds should not be subjected to, in my opinion.  It’s really up to you, though.  Just my $.02.

Anyhow, the movie Juno has a quirky, Napoleon-Dynamite-esque humor to it.  Dry humor, wacky songs, and a low-budget feel to the whole production.  They pull it off well enough, though.  The movie moves along at a decent clip and the characters are all likable enough.  The end of the movie (without giving anything away) took a slight turn that I didn’t necessarily see coming.  ‘Twas alright, though.

  • My take:  7 out of 10

As always, your mileage may vary.
