  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Wiitty and wise-cracking Juno (Page) is not a typical high school student. One afternoon she sleeps with her guy friend and classmate Paulie (Cera) out of boredom and curiosity. When Juno discovers she is pregnant, she enlists the help of her best friend Leah (Thirlby) to find the perfect adopted parents for her unborn baby. Juno and Leah find a classified ad in the local Penny Saver with the ideal prospective parents

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.82:1 DVD shows a decent picture quality, with good black levels and acceptable shadow delineation. Colors are generally nicely saturated, although the contrast is slightly off balance, which causes the picture to look washed out. Fleshtones look natural for the most part, but there are times when they look too orange. Resolution is somewhat lacking, occasionally looking soft, and compression artifacts are recognized from time to time. Edge enhancement is also noticeable. (Danny Richelieu)
