My Review:

I would say it is a cross between Knocked Up and Little Miss Sunshine. Ellen Page is very clever and fast spoke. Michael Cera pulls off the same award teen that has no clue on what’s going on. Best Comedy I have scene in a long time. I will pulling for Juno at the Oscars by the way it was that good.
