    Wow, Just wow. That movie was awesome.

    Go see it


    Wiki
    IMDB
    Fandango


    This movie, as funny as it is, scared me into having a talk about pregnancy with my GF. I am very pro abortion (at this point in my life), She is not... she would keep it.

    She wouldn't even consider adoption or an abortion, that scares me.

    Thoughts?

    Awesome movie. So funny.

    As for the talk with the girlfriend, we have talked about it a lot. We both agree we would like to have a kid together at some point, just not for a couple more years. Plus my brother just let us know on Christmas he will be having a 2nd kid. I am good looking after his for now.

    I saw Hard Candy late one night on HBO, definitely wasn't like any other movie I've seen.

    i wonder if this is going to be another michael cera film, where all of my friends say that i am the real life version of his character...

    it was scary how many similarities i could draw between my life and superbad, and i'm talking about major events in the plot, not just how they are awkward and all that.

    Next time have that talk before you **** the girl.

    I know your psuedo-libertarian ass would probably kill the girl instead of shelling out for 18 years of child support...so I think it's an important talk for you to have.

    Bwahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    I went and saw it tonight wasted on a whim with friends. I was pleasantly surprised, I liked it. Little much on the current-gen slang front, but the writing aside was pretty good. Approved, and will subsequently get my girlfriend's pants off.

    As far as teen movies go.......light years behind Dazed and Confused.

    I chuckled a little, but after listening to that girl talk for an hour and a half I was hoping she would die giving birth.

    I enjoyed it, but it was rather formulaic for "the independent film about quirky characters." Michael Cera's stuck in playing the same character every show/film, and in this movie, he was Michael Cera furniture.

    The writer and producer had a good interview on NPR...she's a former stripper, among other things...apparenly used to have a controversial blog about the sex industry.

    That's fair--keep the option open for you, but then potentially close the option once you get old and can complain about the irresponsibility of today's kids...

    (just giving you ****, but still...)

    He seemed to be cast as someone slightly more on top of things in this one, but his screentime was so limited there was almost no glimpse into who his character was.

    schpoiler:
    The relationship between Juno and the adoption dude was entertaining, given her previous movie.

    I saw the movie with my wife last week and was pleasantly surprised. I guess I'm getting old, but I was identifying more with the parents than the main character.

    Some Christian blog-hack picked up on that story and thought it was real--made a huge controversey and was very angry when someone pointed out that it was an extremely un-subtle satire.
