A Comedy About Growing Up...And The Bumps Along The Way.

After you've seen JUNO, listen to our spoiler-filled Cinebanter podcast here.

Second Viewing:
Since you know that Rainn Wilson's dialogue is going to ruin the first ten minutes, it's much easier to get through. The touching scenes are only more touching. And Jennifer Garner is better than I remember. As are Juno's parents. The theater was also more crowded since the Oscar nominations were announced.

First Viewing:
If you can get through the first 20 minutes, with all it's preciousness and look-at-me begging, you'll fall in love with it. Too much snarky dialogue threatens to sink it.

Oscar Nominations:
--Actress Ellen Page
--Director Jason Reitman
--Original Screenplay
