Juno (Ellen Page) may seem wise beyond her years, but after sleeping with classmate Bleeker (Michael Cera), the pregnant teen quickly realizes how little she really knows about life. Thankfully, Juno has been blessed with parents (J.K. Simmons and Allison Janney) who trust their daughter's judgment, and a best friend named Leah (Olivia Thirlby), who's always… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Screenwriter Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman make Juno the marvelously un-still center of a wistfully acerbic comedy that qualifies as a feminized version of Knocked Up."
‑ Bob Mondello, NPR.org
"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."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"A bouncing baby that seems destined to grow into a classic."
‑ Ali Gray, TheShiznit.co.uk
"'Juno' is on some counts unrealistic and does not probe deeply, but it has undeniable charm."
‑ Donald J. Levit, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"Juno is the best kind of comedy: one that makes you laugh, but not at the expense of your emotions."
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"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."
‑ Christopher Orr, The New Republic
"By its end, Juno, in its guilelessly chatty way, touches the heart -- and yes, I had tears in my eyes. This movie works, on its own terms."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"Sadly, while Juno may be able to carry a big bun in her oven, this film can't quite bear the heavy burden of expectation so well."
‑ Ben Rawson-Jones, Digital Spy
"Little Miss Rain Clouds"
‑ Thomas Peyser, Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)
"One of the best films of the year."
‑ Jason Zingale, Bullz-Eye.com
"Juno comes on all wisecracking and aren't-we-clever, but don't be surprised if you find yourself getting choked up -- with happy tears -- by the end."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"The best thing about this movie is that for all its wiseacre badinage, it's utterly believable about the most basic of human situations."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Indie film has the same success rate as Hollywood spectacle and for the same reason--reliance on well worn stereotypes and cliché--but it's the good stuff that comes along that makes all the dreck worth sitting through. Juno is the good stuff."
‑ Joshua Starnes, ComingSoon.net
"Ellen Page's performance is the key to Juno's journey, and she unerringly nuances her character's blithe self-assuredness with just the right notes of uncertainty and innocence."
‑ Steven D. Greydanus, Decent Films Guide
"Jason Reitman directs Juno with just the light touch it needs, and Page is surrounded by terrific supporting performances all around. This could be the sleeper hit of the year."
‑ Jean Lowerison, San Diego Metropolitan
