Movie Reviews

Village Voice - 8.0/10 by J. Hoberman Young Adult might be brushed off as curdled rom-com were it not for two things. The first is the depth of Theron's performance...The second, less predictable aspect is the utter absence of the corny rehabilitation found in "Juno" and Reitman's glib, downsizing dramedy "Up in the Air."
USA Today - 6.3/10 by Claudia Puig While on sardonic turf, it's scathingly funny. Then it veers from biting wit to pitiful. At one juncture, the story threatens to spin off into "Fatal Attraction" territory.
Portland Oregonian - 6.7/10 by Shawn Levy "Juno" was accused (wrongly, in my view) of having things both ways: being cute and cynical, edgy and sentimental. Young Adult, despite the fun afforded by Theron and Oswalt, seems content to have things neither.
The New York Times - 9.0/10 by A.O. Scott Shorter than a bad blind date and as sour as a vinegar Popsicle, Young Adult shrouds its brilliant, brave and breathtakingly cynical heart in the superficial blandness of commercial comedy.
New Orleans Times-Picayune - 7.5/10 by Mike Scott In reality, in this age of cookie-cutter entertainment, the movie's success probably is because of Cody's unconventional script. This isn't a silly, disposable, rom-com -- and thank goodness for that.
New York Post - 7.5/10 by Lou Lumenick It also boasts a killer breakout performance by comic Patton Oswalt as a former classmate who becomes Theron's unlikely co-dependent and sometimes co-conspirator.
indieWIRE - 7.5/10 by Eric Kohn With self destruction as destiny, Reitman has made the equivalent of a Roland Emmerich disaster movie writ small, an apocalyptic scenario internalized by a single person.
Rolling Stone - 7.5/10 by Peter Travers In this tale of stunted development, Theron is a comic force of nature, giving her character considerable density and humanity despite her monstrous aspects.

Juno

Juno (2007) The word 'quirky' has become the quick and easy way to describe films such as 'Little Miss Sunshine' and 'Lars and the Real Girl' that straddle the lines between indie and studio films and comedy and drama. While 'Juno' fits into that same category, this distinctive dramedy is in a class all its own. Ellen Page ('Hard Candy') stars as Juno, a witty teenage girl whose boredom doesn't lead her to the mall. Instead, she makes a one-time trip into the arms of her best friend Paulie Bleeker (Michael Cera, 'Superbad'). When Juno discovers that she's pregnant, she's forced to grow up fast as she tries to find adoptive parents for her quickly growing child. 'Juno' might have a lot of strengths - Page's award-worthy performance, a pitch-perfect soundtrack, excellent direction from Jason Reitman - but it's the screenwriting debut of writer Cody Diablo that makes this such a winning film. Famous for her blog and her book 'Candy Girl - A Year in the Life of an Unlikely Stripper', Diablo has a unique voice and an incredible ear for dialogue that led to her winning a Bafta and an Academy Award for 'Juno's script. But even the nearly perfect script wouldn't sound so good if it weren't for the talents of these actors, particularly Page. She won rave reviews for her first major role in 'Hard Candy', but this performance proves it wasn't a fluke. The rest of the cast, especially J.K. Simmons as Juno's dad, is just as worthy of attention. 'Juno' continues Cera's cinematic ascent after his success with the hit comedy 'Superbad', and his 'Arrested Development' co-star Jason Bateman uses his dry delivery to great effect as a potential parent for Juno's baby.
