Oh man. This movie was amazing. I even loved the soundtrack!

Wiki page. Warning - This page contains the plot, but it is labeled so you can skip it.

I have been dieing to see this film but dont have anyone to go with. I don't feel much like being someone who goes to see a movie by my own self. Looks like a wait for DVD it is for me.

By far one of my favorite movies! It is hilarious, the music was great, and it actually had a good theme with good actors/actresses! I am going to buy it!

I thought it was really good, too.  Friend took me to it, and I was expecting some kind of goofy teen comedy (trailers seemed a little misleading to me).  Only thing I could say against it is that the supporting characters could've been fleshed out a little more, but that probably would've made the movie drag a bit.

My friend bought the soundtrack in NYC and loaned it to me to put it on my iPod! ;D

I liked it, but it had a forced quirkiness to it. You could feel Fox restraining what could have been an amazing movie. Ellen Page is a lot better in Hard Candy(quite a different movie!). I liked the adoptee husband though.

But what was up with the hype? They way they portrayed it the plot was going to be the most original thing ever, but it was pretty normal. I've seen it in TV shows before.

This movie was ridiculous.

Take a generic, predictable plot that ends in happily-ever-after love. Then, you add a bit of psuedo-indie-colloquialism, terrible dialogue, grating music, and... shazam. Juno. Oh wait, don't forget the false insightfulness. Can't have a movie struggling to be controversial without false insightfulness.

Yeah. I didn't like this movie.

A bit more of things and we can make it into a Monkey Island fight scene.

I wouldn't know, I think there was not much to start with. The movie was not indie, it was a movie marketed to people who like indie movies. It was very PC when it all came down to it, and that made it fail. The editing room pretty much nails it.
