JUNO: Bad Movie

JUNO was clever and well acted but...

our arrogant, un-shut-up-able heroine never regrets getting knocked up at age 16--

and no one ever tells her what a dumb thing she did-

in fact, when she announces to her parents that she's pregnant, she says that she's suffering a lot of pain--meaning: that's my punishment--

but everything apparently turns out to be hunky-dory--

she and her nerdy boyfriend swear their love for each other--

a loving woman adopts the baby (although her own husband is leaving her)

her father is tolerant throughout--

in addition, an abortion clinic is portrayed contemptuously--as are condoms--

MESSAGE: Becoming pregnant at age 16, and unmarried, is just swell--
