Directed by Jason Reitman, Juno is a movie about mature and intelligent 16-year-old Juno MacGuff (Ellen Page) who gets “knocked up” on a Lazyboy in her parent's basement with her band-mate, Paulie Bleeker (Michael Cera).
When she discovers she is pregnant she initially wants to have an abortion, but a protestor outside the clinic tells her the baby already has fingernails, which makes Juno think twice. Her friend Leah (Olivia Thirlby) suggests putting it up for adoption and the two sift through the local Pennysaver looking for wannabe parents.
Juno then decides to adopt the baby out to Mark and Vanessa (Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner) who have not been able to have a baby of their own. Vanessa wants nothing more than to be a mother.
After she has all the details worked out in her mind, she finally tells her parents (J.K. Simmons and Allison Janey) about her predicament. Unexpectedly, when she sits them down and they learn she is pregnant they take it much easier than she imagined.
During her pregnancy, Juno finds herself in several circumstances that end up maturing her as she grows into her own self. She is an unusual girl with a quirky nature, but is also very endearing.
The film is a cute story with plenty of laughs as Juno's unconventional outlook on life takes her through several unexpected situations. This is a fun film filled with heart and it's very enjoyable.
