Movie Review

So.... my little brother was just gonna be home last nite doing home work, so I asked him if he'd like to do his homework at our house while Taj and Livie slept. He said sure and Sei and I went to a movie. We saw the movie "Juno." I hadn't heard of it until a few weeks ago. It was a totally cute, fun movie. It's about a 16 yr old who gets knocked up and decides to put her baby up for adoption. I totally recommend it- but I don't think the subject matter is for 13 yr olds even though it's rated PG-13. It was just an easy movie to watch. Here's the trailer:

This movie was really funny. It's like Napolean Dynamite meets She's Having a Baby. You are right, though, I wouldn't want my teenagers to see it. I want them to be horrified by sex and think it's dirty-dirty. I want them to cry on their wedding day at the thought of being alone and neked with a man.

My older kids who saw it said it was a great movie. I've heard lots of great recommendations. Thanks.

Lauren said...

LOL at Annie!!!! I might just be that girl she wants her kids to be...

Anyway, I have been DYING to see this! So, if I went with Ted would I feel awkward? Should I just go with girls?

i absolutely loved this movie and saw it twice in one week. but, i'm with you. i don't want my kids to see it and think everything turns out all right in the end, so do what you want.

Lauren- I don't know if you'd feel awkward with Ted... but it would definitely be fun with the girls!

I've really been wanting to go and see this...I'll just take Lauren with me! ;)

I've heard great reviews, too. I think I'd better go see this one. I love that it promotes adoption.

It was written by a chick named Diablo Cody. How can you go wrong with a movie scriptwriter with a name like that?

lauren, i don't know what ted is like, but i took some ladies from my ward. like a ladies night..and two of them thought it was a little too much for them. there's definitely a little bit of alluding to the sex that got her pregnant. just fyi for ted's sake.
