Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

ELEVEN, Sun­day, 8.30pm, M ( 2007)

con­tin­ued with this smart- mouthed bun­dle of cin­e­matic joy from di­rec­tor Ja­son Reit­man ( Up in the Air). When 16- year- old Juno McGuff ( Ellen Page, pic­tured) en­lists her best friend Paulie ( Ar­rested De­vel­op­ment’s Michael Cera) to be­come her first sex­ual part­ner, lit­tle does she con­sider the out­come. Preg­nant, Juno de­cides to of­fer the baby up for adop­tion – the prospec­tive par­ents are the Lor­ings, won­der­fully por­trayed by Jen­nifer Gar­ner and Cera’s Ar­rested dad Ja­son Bate­man. The script, burst­ing with wit, earned Diablo Cody Os­car gold. A class act all the way. The trend of preg­nancy- themed come­dies ( Knocked Up, Wait­ress)
