Opening Films 

by INLANDER STAFF & r & & r & JUNO & r & & r & Offbeat and surprising, Jason Reitman's (Thank You for Smoking) second film is about perky, outspoken, wisecracking Juno MacGuff (Ellen Page), a 16-year-old with the kind of curiosity that leads her to have sex with her best pal Paulie (Michael Cera), just because it's something to do. That leads to a pregnancy test, the results, her breaking the news to Paulie, a confession to her parents (J.K. Simmons and Allison Janney) and a trip to the abortion clinic. But something happens -- suffice to say it has to do with fingernails -- that changes her mind. That's only the beginning of this sweet, funny, heartfelt film, filled with snappy dialogue and spot-on delivery. (ES) Rated PG-13





ONE MISSED CALL


One more film based on a paranoid Japanese anti-technologist horror flick that seems just about identical in form to all other paranoid Japanese horror flicks of the last decade, One Missed Call is about some sort of malevolence that tells you you're going to die by leaving -- get this -- voice mail messages of your own death rattle! Of course, the only way to stop the carnage is to trace it back to the source, which is probably some dead demon baby or something. (LB) Rated PG-13
