Life lessonBy yulbrynner (49 reviews) from Uckfield , 16 Feb 2008
[Highly rated reviewer]This is something guys should take there girlfriends to see. A chick flick I would say. Although there isnt much to the whole thing and it didnt make me laugh out, it still kept me watching without allowing me to dose of like most do. The only downside to me is that although its dealt with in calm, civilised manner the message sent out is that its ok to do this type of thing as if its the norm and someone will take care of it. The real world is totally opposite.
Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!
Rule 2 : The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.
Rule 3 : You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.
Rule 4 : If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.
Rule 5 : Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.
Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.
Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.
Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.
Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.
Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
If you agree, show your friend

nice!! :O)By Ryman (17 reviews) from Bristol UK , 11 May 2013nice film, great acting, great casting and characters. not much else to say. easy to watch and worth it. will make you laugh and smile the whole way through.. apart from the odd sad bit.
Ju no this film is quite good.By TheKitchenSlave (21 reviews) , 17 Mar 2013Quirky and funny, without out the usual American High School nonsense. Juno's dad and step-mum were excellent, very hard to keep a straight face when they were on screen. Watch it, it's funny and light hearted, even with tight shorts and vests.

Quirky to the point of irksomeBy Paxton (29 reviews) , 26 Jan 2013I maybe a miserable git but this movie and its characters were just too quirky and cool in that nerdy way which is all too common in this sub genre of American teenage stories. The film may have some important points to make about teenage pregnancy and life choices but it feels forced and too many of the characters reactions seem idealised in a sort of liberal fantasy land. The eponymous Juno is so intelligent, articulate and wise that I struggled to believe she would end up pregnant to her dreary boyfriend. If you want a truly quirky small town Americana treat I would advise you to watch 'Napoleon Dynamite', its funnier and truer to the awkwardness of teenage life in an odd way.
Fresh and funnyBy a customer , 18 Nov 2012
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideFunny take on a problem many teens face. Good movie and the acting was good. Sadly tho' makes it seem like it's quite easy to move on from giving a child up in adoption
