Juno!

Katie got the Juno DVD last week, so we all watched it togeth­er Fri­day night. She’s been gush­ing about it since see­ing it in the the­ater, and adores the sound­track, so we were cer­tain­ly curi­ous.

It was an odd movie, fair­ly qui­et – no car crash­es, big tragedies, etc. It was real­ly well-done, and I was pleased with how real­is­ti­cal­ly it depict­ed a teen preg­nan­cy.

I’m more than slight­ly annoyed with what feels like a lit­tle puri­tan­i­cal “gotcha,” with the girl get­ting preg­nant the first and only time she had sex. Yes, of course I know it can hap­pen, but it still feels a lit­tle like the hor­ror movies in which any female who has had sex dies.

The music was real­ly, real­ly cute, and very Katie-ish. She’s a quirky girl, my kid.

I was a lit­tle dis­tract­ed every time Jason Bate­man was on the screen, because he loooks so much like Nathan Fil­lion.1 I won­der if they’re relat­ed at all? If they are, IMDB doesn’t men­tion it.


1 I didn’t real­ize how young Fil­lion is, either – five years younger than I am!
