YMMV: Juno

  • Alternative Character Interpretation / Base Breaker: Vanessa is either a Woobie who wants to be a mother or a reckless, self-centered Jerkass who doesn't have the emotional fortitude or the know-how to do so. There's seemingly no gray area; people who see the film are either with her or against her.
  • Awesome Music: The soundtrack. The Moldy Peaches' "Anyone Else But You" is now inseparable from the movie.
  • Brain Bleach: Oh, GOD. Those PORK SWORDS!!!
  • Esoteric Happy Ending: Some viewers have a very dark interpretation of Vanessa's future relationship with Juno's son and where it might lead. Though the movie paints her in a sympathetic light for choosing to go ahead with the adoption after Mark leaves, one can't help but wonder how she'll cope with being a single parent while still reeling from her painful split with Mark. Let's not forget that she still has a very demanding job that will eat up any time she intends to spend with the child.
  • Genius Bonus: While the movie mentions that Juno's named after the Roman goddess Juno, it doesn't mention that one of the main domains of the goddess is childbirth.
  • Love It or Hate It: Less the movie so much as the dialogue. It's quirkiness is either a huge part of it's charm or deeply obnoxious.
  • Misaimed Fandom: Not by a whole lot, but pregnancy fetishists have a great admiration for this movie, especially the scene in which Juno enthusiastically rolls up her shirt for Vanessa at the mall.
  • No Yay: Mark and Juno, when they dance together.
    • Mark and Juno in general. More than one viewer might have thought this movie was about to take a turn into much creepier adulterous May-December Romance territory with the way Mark kept being so friendly to Juno and the way she kept spending time alone with him, but no, that's not what happens.
  • Ron the Death Eater / The Scrappy: Vanessa is subject to this by haters of the film.
