I'm a movie-a-holic, and I got the perfect fix last night with 92-minutes of near flawless storytelling. Juno, Jason Reitman's follow-up to Thank you for not smoking, is smart, hip and so very quirky. Ellen Page plays teenager, Juno MacGuff, who ends up pregnant after she and her geeky friend Paulie Bleeker (Michael Cera) discover sex on a basement recliner. Novice screenwriter Diablo Cody hit it out of the park with off-beat dialogue and great one-liners. And the Juno soundtrack is just as quirky and fun. It's a feel-good, laugh-out-loud, don't-miss-movie. Juno easily makes my Top 5 of 2007.
