I’m not going to review Juno, as it has been in the theatres for weeks. It’s a fun movie, well worth seeing. But my favourite line comes not three minutes in: “I’ve wanted this for a long time,” says an extremely young male voice, as Juno makes her move. You’ve wanted to have sex for a long time? Really? Like ever since your large slurpee this afternoon, right after training for track and field?
On a different note, having seen the movie, I now understand why the pro-choice crowd doesn’t like it. They’ve complained it is unrealistic. I’ll believe that when the complaints roll in over Gray’s Anatomy. Is anyone’s doctor that good looking? No, I’d say they don’t like it because Juno draws a straight line from sex, to pregnancy, to a baby. In that regard it is very–what’s the word I’m looking for–realistic.
