Another Post About “Juno”

I saw Juno again last night.

And I went from liking it to loving it. It really is something special… and I’m not going to complain about Paste magazine picking it as their #1 movie of the year. It’s not my #1 movie of the year, but it deserves a big audience and a heap of praise. It’s the best thing showing at the multiplex this weekend. It’s not for kids, but for discerning adults, it’s a surprisingly tender-hearted comedy about teen pregnancy, family, true love, and orange Tic-Tacs.

Here’s the review I posted yesterday.

    I hope it gets a wide release soon because it’s not showing anywhere near me…

    The whole concept of limited release ticks me off many times during the holiday movie season.
