Amazon.co.uk Review
Somewhere between the sharp satire of Election and the rich human comedy of You Can Count On Me lies Juno, a sardonic but ultimately compassionate story of a pregnant teenage girl who wants to give her baby up for adoption. Social misfit Juno (Ellen Page, Hard Candy, X-Men: The Last Stand) protects herself with a caustic wit, but when she gets pregnant by her friend Paulie (Michael Cera, Superbad), Juno finds herself unwilling to terminate the pregnancy. When she chooses a couple who place a classified ad looking to adopt, Juno gets drawn further into their lives than she anticipated.

But Juno is much more than its plot; the stylised dialogue (by screenwriter Diablo Cody) seems forced at first, but soon creates a richly textured world, greatly aided by superb performances by Page, Cera, Jennifer Garner and Jason Bateman as the prospective parents, and J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man) and Allison Janney as Juno's father and stepmother. Director Jason Reitman (Thank You For Smoking) deftly keeps the movie from slipping into easy, shallow sarcasm or foundering in sentimentality. The result is smarter and funnier than you might expect from the subject matter, and warmer and more touching than you might expect from the cocky attitude. Page's performance is deceptively simple; she never asks the audience to love her, yet she effortlessly carries a movie in which she's in almost every scene. That's star power.

Silly me.. corrected now. Thanks for pointing

Seems to have some reasonable reviews and nice stocking filler price too!

Thanks you

Good film and great soundtrack.

Voted hot

Good deal Edi, anyone with Quidco HMV have it for £5.99 delivered.

I noticed that it was £5.99 in HMV too yesterday
In fact, some other newish titles at £5.99 there too

Couldn't stand this film. Ellen Page has the be one of the most annoying actresses of all time. The way she looks, the way she speaks. Instantly unlikeable.

I really liked the film - really sweet and a nice cute ending.
