Juno is the happy surprise every movie fan longs for. I saw this last night at a Fox Searchlight screening (t-shirts as swag, thank you very much) and I am smitten. A smart, relevant script, solid acting and laughs (did I mention the laughs?) makes for a very solid movie. The writing on this one is amazing, the delivery as well (did I mention the laughs?). Juno is 16, a junior in high school, and after a casual encounter with sex, pregnant by her best friend. Her decision to carry the baby, with all it's consequences, is an educational, honest ride. Juno, her family and friends won me over. See it, enjoy it! I will do so, as well, again ......
