Saved! vs. Juno

Maybe it’s my Catholic upbringing, maybe it’s the fact that Susan Sarandon’s daughter Eva Amurri is so blindingly hot, maybe it’s how cute Jena Malone and Patrick Fugit are together, or maybe it’s the completely unnecessary way Diablo Cody turned the Jason Bateman character into a villain when the movie didn’t need a villain, but after watching the movie Saved! again the other day, I realized I much prefer that movie to Juno.

I mean, I liked Juno, but if I had to choose one teenage pregnancy comedy to watch right now, I’d have to go with Saved!.


  1. I love both movies, in toooootally different ways.
    I didn't see Bateman as a vilain. He was just a guy, opting out. A large part of Juno was Juno figuring out that grownups are you know, people.

  2. He was a jerk. He was completely 1 dimensional and unlikeable. If he'd been more sympathetic and his reasons for leaving more justified, the movie would have been far richer.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
