Synopsis from DVD Cover:
Juno MacGuff (Ellen Page) is a cool, confident teenager who takes a nine-month detour into adulthood when she's faced with an unplanned pregnancy - and sets out to find the perfect parents for her baby. With the help of her charmingly unassuming boyfriend (Michael Cera), supportive dad (J.K. Simmons) and no-nonsense stepmom (Allison Janney), Juno sets her sights on an affluent couple (Jennifer Garner and Jason Bateman) longing to adopt their first child.

Quick Review:
By the time "Juno" made it to DVD, I'd seen it three times. Somewhere along the way, I went from adoring it to just sort of liking it. I stand by my original love for it, though, and attribute my waning affections to over-viewing. Plus, no matter what, I'll always love the soundtrack.

Juno MacGuff (Ellen Page) is a smart and cynical sixteen-year-old who winds up pregnant from a one-time encounter with her best friend and pseudo-boyfriend Paulie Bleeker (Michael Cera). After the initial shock wears off, our girl Juno takes matters into her own hands and decides to give the baby up for adoption to a seemingly perfect couple (Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner) in need of a child. Turns out, though, that Juno doesn't quite have all the answers, and in the end, she discovers more about herself and the people she loves than she ever expected.

Now, everyone raved about Page, and she even got an Oscar nod for her starring role. And she's good, don't get me wrong. But it's a shame that the supporting cast didn't get a little more attention. Cera is heartbreaking, Bateman is uber-creepy, and Garner is just good. Also of note are J.K. Simmons and Alison Janney as Juno father and stepmother-these two were probably my favorite in the film, and even though their reactions to Juno's impending motherhood may seem a tad unrealistic, they pull it off so well that it works. The major complaint and the major compliments for this film all seem to direct themselves at the dialogue-either it's too trendy or it's very clever. I get that-and it's both. Diablo Cody has crafted characters with their own language, and though the movie can almost get lost in its quirkiness, there's a heart under all the cool cleverness-just like Juno herself.

This little film that could actually boasts a substantial amount of Extra material. There's a pretty interesting commentary from director Jason Reitman and writer Cody that's got a lot more girth than one might expect. There are 11 Deleted Scenes, and really, whether it's just a longer version of a scene we've seen or a brand new bit, they're all good and worth a look. The Gag Reel is appropriately funny, and I loved the Gag Scene with Rainn Wilson just because, well, he's a hoot. Rounding out the funny is a short three-minute "Cast and Crew Jam," featuring said folks rocking out to "Do What You Want" by OK Go. Finally, there's about 20 minutes worth of Screen Tests. Exclusive to the two-disc edition there are four more featurettes that pretty well cover every aspect of the movie between them: "Way Beyond 'Our' Maturity Level: Juno-Leah-Bleeker," "Diablo Cody is Totally Boss," "Jason Reitman For Shizz," and "Honest to Blog!: Creating Juno."

In Conclusion:
OK, OK, I like it again. "Juno" really is good-it has its moments of too cool for schoolness, but again, there's a great big 'ol heart in there that makes it worth it, and for the fan who loved it in theatres, the Special Features warrant a purchase. Fo shizz.
