Went to see Juno with a couple of friends yesterday evening, and we all enjoyed it. It has some hilarious dialogue (off the top of my head, I remember The Cautionary Whale as the heavily-pregant teenager's description of herself) but also some surprisingly moving scenes.

It was an involving film to watch since the characters didn't act according to movie conventions, so it was always interesting to see what would happen. I liked Juno's parents (father and step-mother), and loved their response to her telling them she was pregnant.Did you see that coming? / Yeah, but I was hoping she was expelled or into hard drugs.

Ellen Page who plays Juno is excellent, but I also thought that Jennifer Garner, as the potential adopter mother, gave a wonderful performance.
