Summary: A miniature Janine Garofalo gets pregnant and decides to give her baby to a woman who is probably the sister of Charlotte from Sex & the City (middle-class uptightness personified).
The Bottom Line: Some great moments, some killer lines, a decent story with a few nicely fleshed-out characters. Obnoxious soundtrack. In no way representative of actual pregnant teenagers, who are generally moody ditzes complaining unceasingly about the limited fashion range of maternity clothes. I would know - I'm from Minnesota, and plenty of my classmates were "Junos". I worry a little bit that some girls will see this film and think it's fun and easy to have a baby in grade 11.
And speaking of pregnant teenagers, this is total b.s. Shit, in high school my girlfriends and I couldn't even agree on which movie to see. No way could more than 3-4 girls be in on this, unless it was some kinda online thing like those wacky Japanese kids with their suicide pacts. This is just a convenient way to blame your peers and maybe get a reduction in your grounding time.
