After watching my first lunar eclipse tonight from the roof of my apartment building, I went with Nick Fitzer and his roommate Nick something-or-other to watch Juno. Many friends, including Plato and Jordan, told me that Juno was an excellent movie and so I have been anxious to see it for some time.
Plato repeatedly told me to take a date, but I grew impatient of waiting and I had a gift card to AMC burning a hole in my pocket.
Juno was a pretty great movie. It was my kind of romance; funny, satirical, gritty and poignant. Ellen Page was excellent as the character Juno, though I kept getting the impression that she was not five feet tall. Maybe Michael Cera is just an NBA player. I was not too impressed with Michael Cera’s acting performance, I think that Ellen Page definitely carried him.
Since I saw Juno with those guys, I made some pretty crude jokes on the way out. I think that it was really a pretty movie though.
Below is the hit song “Anyone Else But You” from Juno as sung by Michael Cera and Ellen Page. “Anyone Else But You” is not a technically amazing song, but something about it strikes a chord in me and apparently a lot of other people. Check it out.
One thought on “Juno Movie Review”
i assumed Juno was directed by the same guy that directed Knocked Up because it’s about an unexpected pregnancy, and Michael Cera stars as Juno’s boyfriend (he was one of the goofy kids from Superbad, a close relative of Knocked Up), but it turns out this is not the case
