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.
