Juno( Fox Searchlight )
This years indie film that could, Juno has won comparisons to Little Miss Sunshine and Ghost World. It scored 81 out of 100 on Metacritic and a 93% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. But New York magazines David Edelstein didnt bite:
[Junos] a screwball heroine, but its the writer, Diablo Cody, and the director, Jason Reitman, who have screws loose.... Or maybe theyre just desperate to make their film a chick 'Rushmore' or 'Garden State' a movie that confers hipness on teens, that makes kids want to use the same slang and snap up the soundtrack and buy the vintage Japanese comics and rent the hack-em-up DVDs it references.
