i know this is going to start a huge argument about "haters" and probably encourage some accusations of sexism as well (which fall kind of flat when your entire angle on fame is that you were once a stripper-note NYT article), but purely based on the content they produce, these people are horrible and should never make films/write music again. i can't wait for this wave of interest to die in about, oh, two weeks.

what a huge argument you started, huh?

Yeah well you may get your wish Anon 7:02pm. While i loved Juno and thought the script was awesome, I have a copy of Diablo's next script which she is directing. It is called Jennifer's Body and it is ok but nowhere near as good as Juno.

Kimya Dawson is not a new artist.

do people really talk like Juno in real life? some of the dialogue i found to be very unrealistic.

Posted by Anonymous | January 10, 2008 9:16 AM

that's what they said about dawson's creek...

I think Juno put a much needed positive spin on teen pregnancy. Getting knocked up in high school can be cute and funny, as long as you're shite, middle class and from a solid suburban nuclear family. Any teenies out there wanna do the horizontal bop?

Posted by Anonymous | January 10, 2008 9:36 AM

I agree, Anon 9:16, it was ridiculous. I've never known movies to be unrealistic in the past. Hey did anybody catch Aliens Vs. Predator?

No wonder this woman became a writer. How the fuck did she ever earn a living as a stripper? She's got a face that's a cross between Tela Tequila and a Bratz doll, and quite a set of cankles. I wouldn't bother converting my bar mitzvah money into singles to "make it rain" on her.

oh bv, this was my one refuge from the diablo cody pr onslaught.

i'm so glad to find other people who thought that movie was kind of bad. irritating dialogue, self-concious art direction(check out my bottle of sunny d!), napoleon dynamite ripping. i liked the second half tho.

there are certainly worse movies, but it's getting way too much love. michael cera and kimya were the best things about it.

I sort-of liked teh message is sent on teen pregnancy, but I found the dialogue abismal. It was beyond irritating... and yes, no one I know speaks like that. No wonder this girl used to be a blogger. The film's dialogue sounded like it was culled from all the Gawker & Perez commenters. One of my contenders for worst film of the year.

The movie was pretty good. I would rent it rather see it in the theater. Nothing earth-shattering, just a cute/sweet movie. There are far worse movies out there to complain about.

The only bad part of the movie was that talentless hack singing the songs.

i don't care what you all say, i am so pumped to see kimya live!!

five alive would have been a much better pop-culture reference as prop.

I would fuck the Juno girl, Kimya and what's her face that wrote the thing. I LIKE FUCKING!

^^^^You have bruised my fragile no sex getting internet loser ego. Would you like to fuck?

Posted by Anonymous | January 10, 2008 3:50 PM

i would bang her with a stolen dick, that somehow attached near my dick so i could fuck her. no, not really. if she asked me to fuck i would do it in a heartbeat, i love michael cera.

Kimya Dawson is one of my favorite lyricists. Most of these posters don't seem to have a sense of humor to appreciate her wit.

Posted by Anonymous | January 13, 2008 4:27 PM

Kimya was completely awesome, the place was packed, and good feelings flowed. Great day at Southpaw.

Posted by nyctaper | January 13, 2008 10:01 PM

what are you criticizing the dialogue for? its quick and witty but it is by no means meant to be a real life situation. youre not meant to walk out of the theater saying "wow thats exactly what my highschool experience was like". its meant to be a social critique in a tangent world where superbad never existed, all track team members do is run, and jennifer garner is just a name in a person's head, instead of a celebrity. if we are going to compare this movie to real life, why dont we pull "world of the worlds" and "the others" into this conversation too?
comparing movie life to real life is like mixing oil and water. there are plenty of similarities between the two but they are never going to mix.

Real life is free. Movies cost about $9.50. That said, Ellen Page is about as charming as flossing with barbed wire and anything that's come out of her mouth since "Hard Candy" is a cringeworthy paper cut. The only reason she was any good in "X-Men 3" was because half the time she was invisible.
