Or just another whimsical, quirky rom-com?
Anyone have thoughts they’d like to share?
Here are mine:
I really really enjoyed it. To be honest, I was moved by it… Almost to tears. And I’m not a sap.
There’s nothing more fem than pregnancy. It’s an experience that a man will never be able to drag his way through. And being that Juno was written by a woman, there’s a tenderness to it.
That said, critics have said that it takes teen pregnancy too lightly – that the movie was unrealistic.
To me, though, what those critics perceived as ‘too lightly’ was an inspiring take. Juno’s parents did not freak out when she told them. They supported her choice to adopt, and helped her along the way by meeting the adopting parents, taking her to doctors’ appointments and getting her prenatal vitamins.
I thought it was a very honest take on the situation – and it portrayed a way of how teen pregnancy doesn’t have to ruin lives.
I also liked how everyone acted responsibly, and made mature decisions – once you overlook the basic premise of the movie, which is rooted in irresponsibility.
What do you think of the movie? Am I way romanticizing it, falling for the snappy dialogue and cool soundtrack? Or am I right on?
