“The way the torrents of archly amusing, vocabulary-bending dialogue trip off the tongues of the characters here, you know you’re in the hands of some manner of distinctive writer, and she would be Diablo Cody — a young scribe very handy at shotgunning bright teen quips, as well as catching the attitudes of two distinct types of adults. In fact, the voluminous ruminations of precocious sprite Juno MacGuff (Ellen Page) cascade so thick and fast at the outset that they almost weigh things down, so heavy are they with self-conscious cleverness.” — from Todd McCarthy‘s mostly positive review of Jason Reitman‘s Juno, filed yesterday afternoon from the Telluride Film Festival.
