When Trailers Strike Gold – Part 2 Juno

“This is one doodle that can’t be undid, homeskillet.”

There’s a level of charm in this movie, however unintentional or however much the filmmakers may like to say otherwise, that captures the sanctity of life with better aplomb than a Sunday sermon.

That, and it’s funny.

Juno might be overstuffed with wise-acre snark, but underneath it, I caught the folds of some deftly woven material too risky for many comedies to touch—like the rewards of faithfulness (Juno’s mom and dad), and the challenge of masculinity (the juxtaposition between Mark and Bleeker; i.e. Jason Bateman and Michael Cera).
