Random musings on all things cinematical, and otherwise, by Joe Leydon.
Terrible film, and a snotty, juvenile screenplay to boot. To think it stole nominations from Into the Wild--disgusting.
Bzzzzzzt! Wrong, Johnny. But thanks for playing.
I liked Juno so I mostly agree with you, Joe, but I can see how someone could hold the opposing point of view. The screenplay was engaging and touching. The slangtastic dialog was mostly a hoot, but even I have to admit that were a couple scenes where it became cringe-worthy. There's one scene in a market where the conversation between the clerk and Juno literally made me wince. I think it was just a case of trying too hard to be clever and going a little too far. On the whole, though, I think Diablo's effort was quite Oscar-worthy.
