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 looks so much like Nathan Fil­lion.1I did­n’t real­ize how young Fil­lion is, either—five years younger than I am! I won­der if they’re relat­ed at all? If they are, IMDB does­n’t men­tion it.

Cyn is Katie's mom, Esther's Mémé, and a Support Engineer. She lives in the Atlanta area with her life partner, Rick, and their critters. She knits, does counted-thread needlework, reads, makes music, plays TTRPGs, and spends too much time online.
