There is an audio commentary by director Jason Reitman and screenwriter Diablo Cody. The first thing that you notice when listening to Cody talking is how well Ellen Page mimicked her way of speaking. Reitman tends to dominate the track and, not surprisingly, talks about filmmaking aspects like the casting of minor roles, the attention to details for the sets, how he shot certain scenes, and so on. This is pretty decent track filled with lots of anecdotal stories and production details.
Also included are 11 deleted scenes with optional commentary by Reitman and Cody. We meet Juno's crazy next-door neighbour. There's also a different introduction to Juno's family. We see Mark and Vanessa's first attempt to adopt. There's also an amusing bit where Juno has a solo gig and sings a song about getting pregnant. These are all good scenes and Reitman explains why there were cut.
There is the obligatory "Gag Reel," a hilarious collection of blown lines and goofs with Bateman making Page break character time and time again.Read more ›
Juno (Ellen Page) is sixteen and talks her best friend Bleek (Michael Cera) into having sex: the result is a surprise pregnancy that Juno shares with her girlfriend Leah (Olivia Thirley) and the store clerk Rollo (Rainn Wilson) even before informing Bleek, a likable kid who seems fairly flat about the situation. After discarding abortion as a viable solution, Juno informs her father (JK Simmons) and stepmother (Allison Janney) of her status, and tells them she is going to complete the pregnancy and give the baby to some loving and needy barren couple. Her parents are at first flustered by the news, but quickly become supportive in a way that tells us many things about the durability of successful families. With Leah's help, Juno answers an ad for 'wanted: baby' in PennySaver and visits the Lorings (Jennifer Garner and Jason Bateman) who desperately want a child and embrace Juno's gesture of adoption with eager excitement. The remainder of the film follows Juno as her abdomen increases in girth, finding new respect for her parents and for Bleek, and inadvertently walking in the troubled waters of the Loring's marital discord.Read more ›
The actor - Ellen Page is a tiny monotoned actor whose face delivers comedy or drama equally well. I mean, she has an interesting face. The story - putting an unwanted pregnancy up for adoption - this screen writer manages to keep it light and yet extract alittle empathy from the audience. Teenagers in trouble, everyone here is pithy and has a list of their own issues, equally as disturbing as Juno's. But Juno is new at it, and by the end of the film her innocence is not totally undone by her experience. That's upbeat.
Michael Cera is well cast, kind of self-serving humor and his innocent face lend him a very authentic note in the role of prom attending track running dad.
I like it a lot, and yet it's not the kind of film i like to watch very often. And so I take away a star, because some important films don't drill a whole in the day you saw them, and then you cant really watch them again with as much interest. I can watch the Godfather over and over but Juno, maybe not. I'm glad it's out there. I just don't want it in my house every night.
