Juno on DVD

Juno on DVD. A good script and a very strong cast, especially Ellen Page in the title role, make this an entertaining and enjoyable film. Its Oscar nomination for Best Picture might be going too far however. If there is such a thing as a serious comedy, then Juno is it. The main subject of teen pregnancy is treated seriously in an adult manner and, therefore, there is never the possibility that this will be an outrageous comedy. Instead, viewers see complex relationships, realistically depicted, that derive their humor from the quirkiness that resides in each of us. I especially liked the drama associated with prospective adoptive parents portrayed by Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner. The bonus features include some screen tests and a gag reel, but are not very special.
