"Screenwriter Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman make Juno the marvelously un-still center of a wistfull acerbic comedy that qualifies as a feminized version of Knocked Up." - NPR

"Fierce without being cruel, sweet without becoming saccharine, and never short of hilarious, it's not only the best comedy of the year, but one of the best films, period." - The New Republic

"Juno is the best movie of the year. It's the best screenplay of the year, and it features the best actress of the year working with the best acting ensemble of the year." - Detroit News

When a teenage girl is faced with an unexpected pregnancy, she enlists the aid of her best friend in finding the unborn child a suitable home in this coming-of-age comedy drama. Juno may seem wise beyond her years, but after sleeping with classmate Bleeker, the pregnant teen quickly realizes how little she really knows about life. With a little help, Juno soon comes into contact with an affluent suburban couple who are eager to adopt. Now, as adolescent Juno is faced with a series of very adult decisions, she will draw on the support of her family and friends in order to discover who she truly is, and discover that one bad choice can have a lifetime of consequences.
