Huge inspration!! 5 Aug. 2011
By Debra K. Walker - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm striking out on a screen writer's quest and this has been a huge inspiration! It's a superb example of a script (judging by what the manuals say) with an awesome intro by the writer.

I'm guessing that one of the hardest parts of writing is sticking with it. "Juno: The Shooting Script" is the fire under my rocket and I plan to ride it to the end.

It's also just a fun read because the dialogue is so unique and quirky. Fabulous....

Laughing out Loud 17 Mar. 2008

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you loved the movie, you're going to love this book. Diablo Cody's script had audiences howling with laughter in theaters across the country, and no doubt some of that laughter caused you to miss some of the ensuing dialogue. This book enables you to relive the movie, catch the lines you missed, and relive the great feeling you had while watching the film enfold.

Recommended! Especially if you listen to the Juno Soundtrack while reading.

Wished for more 16 Nov. 2008
By K. Wade - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the second book in this series that I've purchased, the first being the script of Little Miss Sunshine. While Juno was a great read--from the standpoint of the author's skill as a screenwriter, I was disappointed that Diablo did not involve herself in the production of this book in the same way that Michael Arndt did in the production of the LMS book.

Arndt shared many lessons he had learned as the script was revised in the shooting process, including explanations of why some scenes were cut. In the Juno book, however, Ms. Cody seems absent, except in the original script and a biographical/thank-you-to-those-who-helped type introduction. There are places where 3-5 scenes are simply marked as eliminated, but with no explanation of what they were, or why they were cut.

Since scripts of screenplays without writer comments are widely available on the Internet, it seems to me the people at Newmarket Press need to try harder for screenwriter involvement in this series.
"Yeah, I'm a Legend. You Know, They Call Me the Cautionary Whale." 19 Jun. 2008
By Kenneth M. Gelwasser - Published on
Format: Paperback
Yes, I think I can admit it. I'm a "Juno" fanatic. I think I might be just one step away from going on eBay and buying one of those crummy hamburger phones, from Taiwan. "Juno" is one of those movies that you either absolutely love or absolutely hate. Judging, from the Amazon DVD reviews, there dosn't seem to be much of a middle ground.

Juno is the story of a percocious, cocky teenager, who gets herself pregnant, while sexually experimenting with her best friend Paulie. She makes arrangements to have the child adopted by a childless, yuppie couple named the Lorings. The film follows the nine months of her pregnancy and her relationships with her understanding parents, Paulie and the Lorings. What starts out as screwball-like, alternative comedy eventually morphs into an emotional drama about growing up and learning about the true power of love.

From the above description it sounds like you could make a really 'baaaaadd' version of an 'ABC Afterschool Special'. What made the difference? What kept it from becoming the usual Hollywood drool? That answer comes in the form of a brilliant script written by first time screenwriter, Diablo Cody.

Miss Cody has created an imaginative, smart, well-written story, which is both funny and moving at the same time. I love the fact that her script dosn't treat it's characters or the audience like they were a bunch of dummies. When was the last time a Hollywood film had a story about teen pregnancy, that didn't make the parents out as a bunch of clueless, overeacting, screaming idiots or the teen father-to-be as an absolute jerk? When did any movie (besides "Ordinary People") treat a yuppie character as anything more than one dimensional? What I like about this script is that we meet these characters and peel away all the layers and find out what makes these people tick. Furthermore, the script is delightful in it's use of language. Diablo Cody seems to have this wonderful ear for it and a way with humourous dialogue. This is one of those films (like "The Big Lebowski" or "Pulp Fiction") that is endlessly qoutable.

So, its only natural that one of the byproducts of this well recieved film would be "Juno: The Shooting Script". I keep it as reader in my bathr-eerrrr-library and often take a peek at a page or two at a time. I love the fact, that every once in awhile, I come across small amounts of dialogue, that never made the film or were changed. Very cool! Also included is a short forward from "Juno" Director, Jason Reitman and an introduction from Diablo Cody about the creation of the script. A small amount of photos are also included along with qoutes from the actors and the production credits.

If your really as nuts about this film, as I am, than I think you'll enjoy reading and owning, this very funny, moving, well written script from a new writer with an original vision. It's "the cheese to my macaronie"! Highly recommended!
The script for a witty and poignant movie 16 Feb. 2008

I love movies. I love to read and write. It's rare when I want to read a script for a great movie. Juno is one of them. When I first saw it, I admit I was skeptical. The plot was about a pregnant teen deciding on which couple will be best to give her baby to. Sounds like something off of a Lifetime movie. Trust me, Juno turns and twists the typical plot lines.
At the beginning, it is full of witty sayings not just by Juno but even the adults. And may I say that Juno is the first movie about this situation I've seen where they don't depict the parents as one-note or clueless.
This is the shooting script of the movie which means it does have some extra lines and scenes that they couldn't fit in the movie, and many are a welcome surprise. Those of you who have seen Juno 4+ times will also note they added to the script off the record. I found myself saying those missing lines while reading it.
Since I've seen Juno, I've wanted to read the dialogue to this wonderful story, and here it is.
You could take it the next time you see Juno and read along.
"WHOA! Dream big!"
