    I saw this. I thought the movie was ok, but it went out of it's way to be "quirky" and that bugged me. It was like, "Oh look, I have a hamburger phone? See How different I am??". I don't mind a little bit of stuff like that, but sometimes they hit you over the head with it. I really hated when she referenced "Soupy Sales" as if any 16 year old girl would know who that was. I thought Justin Bateman and Jennifer Garner were very good though.

    I went to see "The Notebook" with my friend(male) when it was in the theatres. I guess I don't care what the movie is classified as, I will see it if It looks good.

    The question I have is, is it more of a chick flick then a movie you could see with a bunch of guys? Because if it is then I'll have to call people.

    Rule Number 1 In Movie Viewing: Do not ever listen to critics. 98% of the time they hate everything they review, and the other 2% they are more off-base than Michael Bay's "Pearl Harbor."

    It's not funny... It has funny parts....about 4 or 5....but it is not ground-breaking, it's not hilarious...it's not innovative. Someone already said it was "Napoleon-Dynomite-esque" That alone is not a good discription you want to be associated with your film because Dynomite sucked.

    The main character was ridiculous. LIke I said in my review, I can't stand when young people act like they lived through a time-period and then try to tell those that did that they don't know jack about what they're talking about. If you weren't alive to see or hear the band come to fruition...you automatically don't have any credibility.

    Also, I don't know any school that trains and practices year round for spring track. Sure there is cross country in the fall....but even then, the team doesn't train every single day and practice every day after school. What freakin' high school did the writers go to?

    Sure it had a message of pro-life and knowing that you're not mature enough to handle that kind of life-changing situation...but again...the film fails miserabley at getting it's message successfully portrayed.

    The music was just an attempt to align with the main character's taste, which again is phoney and only there to create an argument for the writer's taste's sake.

    But....I can understand why the average movie-goer can like something like this. "Oh it was so cute and funny...blah blah blah...."

    no. it wasn't.

    To sum it up: Juno tried too hard.

    Michael Cera makes me laugh though, he makes things awkward and is dryly sarcastic.

    But yeah....ridiculous attempt to succeed at being "hip."

    Well the soundtrack is amazing, so i'm assuming the movie will be just as good.

    Oh yeah?!? was your second favorite line this:

    (talking about why they had sex) "I know you weren't bored that day because there was a bunch of great stuff on TV. The Blair Witch Project was on Starz...."(I couldn't hear what he said right here because I was laughing so hard).
