So so badly want a sequel with the original cast.

I wish that the scenario had been that she'd used a condom and it broke....especially since it was made clear that Juno initiated the sex with Paulie.

I look and talk a lot like a female version of Elliot Page and we're about the same age and this movie was an extremely uncomfortable watch for me when I saw it in the theater. I wonder how he feels about it now.

For me the most raw, iconic moment of this movie has always been this exchange:

Dad: “I thought you were the kind of girl who knew when to say when”

Juno: “I don’t know what kind of girl I am.”

So much vulnerability in that moment. It leaps off the screen.

I haven't seen this movie since it originally came out, but one scene I remember feeling was a little gross is when Juno goes to the abortion clinic, and all the other women there seemed to be portrayed as stereotypical damaged, dregs of society-type "losers." Does that scene still come across that way?

we don't see most of the women's faces and it seems like they're a mix of types....however the receptionist is a scary, sullen, unempathetic goth.

Iconic Rainn Wilson scenes, go Diablo. On rewatches I've felt like turning it off when Jason Bateman's character starts showing the signs of his creepiness. Douche-chills for sure.

I heard the name "Mankato" for the first time in this movie.

Saw it when it came out but the characters all became so tiresome and repellent I walked out before the end. What happened? She didn't give her baby to that awful couple, did she?
