I like to think I’m not shallow, that I don’t judge a book by its cover, but I guess I do. And if anything has proven me wrong, it’s Juno.
I must have watched the trailer for Juno five or six times and never been enticed to see it. Why did I watch the trailer so many times then? Well everyone was raving about the movie, so I figured there was something I missed in it, and so I watched the trailer again.
Last night I bit the bullet, turned on Front Row on the G5 connected to the TV and settled in to watch Juno and it was awesome.
Juno is a beautiful but wacky movie. There are so many great one-liners in it you find yourself chuckling all they way through. Sure you already know the storyline, 16-year old girl gets pregnant after “some time in the chair” and decides to have the bab, but to adopt it out to a couple she found in the penny-save magazine.
So if you’ve been avoiding the movie, as I did, go and rent it, it’s actually a great movie.
