Juno is a true masterpiece, an epitome of perfection from simplicity. Right from the Sunny D animative gif imaged start to the 'Part time lover, full time friend' duet, the movie is uniquely clear cut. Ellen had done a wonder of a job with her acting. Emotions best shown when she fights with Cera with the prom war. Even if you hate Jennifer Garner, I'd admit that she has done an excellent performance showing the true emotion of a much awaiting mother (best scene - painting the room). Though a step mom is assumed to be cocky (Ultrasound scene), Janney made a perfect caring step mom (allergic dog scene). If Janney was impressive, then I'd definitely applaud on Simmons whom I've always considered to be fit only in roles like the Spiderman editor he did. But he made more sense than any other character as the wonderful father of an observantly cynical teen daughter. Jason Bateman was not of the Scrubs type this time and did a good job with his simple day today character.

Though the credit is mostly given to the director Reitman for his second masterpiece next to Thank you for smoking, I'd rather say the true credit has to be given to Diablo Cody the writer. Oh man! Simply superb commonly used American lifed dialogues. Her way of pulling things off the scene in such a complex situation oriented movie made the 'issue of the life' look uniquely acceptable. Hats off to her work. And finally the scores: If I was a flower, I took the Polaroid were just the perfect last pieces of the puzzle. Vampire was fun at the ending.

Overall I give it a perfect 10 for an overall performance. PS Nothing I mentioned above shall ruin you watching the movie. Just go on, put that green paper in the screen and enjoy the simplicity of complex movies. And don’t forget to check the memorable quotes of the movie once you finish seeing it. There is no way you can forget the name Diablo after watching this movie.

Some dialogues to note for:

That ain’t no Etch a Sketch. This is one doodle that can’t be undone Home skillet.

What other kinda shenanigans could I get into?

Woah! Dream Big. Go fly a kite.

I hear they give away babies like free iPods.

Thunder cats are GO.

They can hear us even though it’s all like ten thousand leagues under the sea.

Doctors are like sadists who like to play God and laugh at the lesser peoples pain.

And finally: ‘Ph U K E T, Thailand’

I liked the movie a lot too.. especially because it was not a socio-moral commentary on teenage pregnance and what should be done and what should be avoided- was rotfl at "I hear they give away babies like free iPods" ..:D
