The movies that stay in your head are not necessarily the most dramatic or violent movies. They are movies that take you back in time, teen movies have always done well in box office, well most of the time. Who doesn’t remember Ferris Bueller and the John Hughes trilogy of Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, and Breakfast Club? The latest entry into this genre is Juno and it has been getting fantastic reviews. Is the movie worth the hype?

While Juno is a funny, amusing movie I don’t think it is the greatest movie ever made. The dialogue was witty although I don’t think most high school kids really talk that way in real life. I enjoyed all the acting, particularly Allison Janney and Jk Simmons as Juno’s parents. I really loved the scene where Juno’s step mom tells off the ultrasound tech. I was touched when Juno’s dad was telling Juno to find someone who loves her for exactly who she is. Her parents were making the best out of a tough situation.

 I loved seeing the relationship between Jennifer Garner and Jason Bateman. You could see there were some issues right from the beginning and I liked how their relationship was portrayed honestly, adopting a baby was not going to fix their marriage. In the end, the dad left the marriage.

Overall, I do think Juno is worth the $10 admission fee. It is a slightly new twist on the teen movie.
