yeah, that was also bothersome with me...My other main reason for not liking the movie was the fact that i didn`t think it was realistic. The girl is pregnant, and when she tells her parents for the first time they just kinda have this "eh" feeling about it. No screaming and shouting at her for getting knocked up, no freaking out, just kinda "you`re pregnant...that sucks." Same thing when she tells her boyfriend, he doesn`t freak out or anything, he just has this feeling of " Okay, that`s not good." But no real sense of urgency about it.

Memento- 8.5/10

This was a real WTF movie...It makes you think alot as you watch it, and if you are following along correctly, you`ll think it was great, as I did. If not, then i imagine you`ll hate it.

That's the sad commentary on our country. There are a lot of people in this country who are so disconnected from their parents or vice versa that there is no emotional investment from one to the other. Trust me, I have friends who are emotionally screwed up now that they are in their mid-20's and have never had a real relationship with either of their parents.
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...

Hitman - 6.5/10 I love unnecessary violence in movies, but I feel this one could have been better. Acting wasn't great and plot had some holes in it. Action was great, though, and that's the whole reason I got it. Worth a renting, but I would have regretted seeing it in the theater.

I actually think the reaction of the parents was more realistic than if they would have had some huge explosion and been yelling and screaming. I think (or hope, at least) that most parents would have a better way of dealing with a situation like that than by yelling and screaming. And the boyfriend's reaction rang true with me as well, at least from my personal experience. Also, I thought the film did a pretty good job of showing that, although becoming pregnant while still in high school is going to have a profound impact on your life, it doesn't necessarily have to ruin your life, cause you to drop out of school, give up on college, etc. I also thought they did a decent job of, while not vilifying abortion, also not presenting it as something to be taken lightly without considering its impact.

Totally. They way her parents reacted is exactly how my parents would have reacted if I had come home and told them I knocked my girlfriend up. I would have gotten a little more "you should have been smarter than that" but they wouldn't have raged on me. Not all parents "scream and yell" when they hear their kid has made a mistake. And I agree with you about the boyfriends reaction too, in fact when she tells him he instantly looks like he's had the life sucked out of him, that's exactly how I would have looked...and then asked what she wanted to do. Freaking out isn't going to help anything. Now I may have freaked out in private, and he may have to, but he wasn't the focus of the film. Maybe he cried into his pillow at night before bed who knows.

Anyway I really like Juno, not enough to buy the soundtrack but I like the film a lot. I really like Jason Bateman, he's a very underrated actor.

Are there little illegitimate Vandelays running around this country? God I hope so.
