Juno

This is a movie from last year, the big 'break through' movie for Ellen Page. I think she got an Oscar nomination and the movie got a Best Picture nomination. IMHO it did not deserve either. It reminded me somewhat of Knocked Up in it's subject matter and the resolution was just as unbelievable here as in that movie. And I didn't find either of them all that funny. Ellen Page was good, but her character lacked definition and she wasn't as 'offbeat' as the ads make her out to be.

Having said all that, the movie was not bad. It was enjoyable and sweet, especially the relationship between Juno and her dad. It was just that I was expecting more.
