A sweet and surprisingly clean comedy about the pitfalls of teen pregnancy, Juno is so smart and cleverly written that it risks being too cute for its own good. Thankfully, the performances—especially from the startling Ellen Page and the always welcome Michael Cera—rescue the movie from its own self-conscious trappings. The result is perhaps the best comedy of the year: cynical yet heartfelt, funny yet kinked by a hint of sadness. (See movie times at www.thestranger.com for details.)
