Boring archetypes. Good acting plus intimate coming of age story does not always equals good movie. The ambience was right, as was the background, but it just was...not interesting enough, as much as I love watching Juno onscreen, it dind't work very well.
"You only get a little time between a cut and knowing how deep it is. If it's only going to be nicked, or disfigured forever. All you can do is try to stretch out that moment for as long as you possibly can. 'Cause once you know, there ain't no coming back."
Quite predictable but still enjoyabe, mostly thanks to Temple's really good acting. I only wish they focused more on the characters issues thatn getting lost in the predictable journey the kids take.
The soundtrack was a good one as well.
