Top Movies of the Decade #23

23. Juno

I’m kind of amazed “Juno” has held up as well as it has.   I would expect a movie this sarcastic and stylized (“This is one doodle that can’t be un-did, Homeskillet”) to growtiresome after a few viewings.   For instance, I used to love “Clerks.”

Perhaps it’s because Juno is more than snarky.   It’s actually warm, and honest, developing lovable characters at a comfortable pace and bringing them into real conflict and resolution.  In other words, “Juno” has a heart.  A real one, not one doodled on an etch-a-sketch.  And that’s what makes it one of the best films of the decade.
