Friday Night: Let’s Get Weird!!!!!!
Out now in theaters, The Spectacular Now tells the story of two teenagers falling in love — and growing up in the process. Here are 25 other coming-of-age romance films that left a lasting impression, presented in chronological order.
Regardless of what you think about the “Juno” scribe, her next collaboration with director Jason Reitman has produced a pretty rad poster. The film stars Charlize Theron as a washed up author of young adult novels who decides to aggressively stalk her high school sweetheart, now happily married and with child. Oh, and Patton Oswalt is going to be in it. This might make up for “Jennifer’s Body.” No it won’t. View Image ›
He also prefers you email him at his Juno account. View Image ›
From the director of The Dark Knight. Your womb is the scene of the crime.
The NYT profiles Diablo Cody’s band of lady screenwriter friends. The story is basically about how they work in their pajamas and go to premieres together and then get paid seven figures. Oh, and men are scared of them. Their life sounds pretty fun though. Read More ›
Tavi is a twelve-year-old blogger whose tragically hip musings, iconic sense of style, and actually funny sense of humor (her favorite foods are “raspberries and hipsters”) somehow make us even more embarrassed when we remember how we behaved at that age (although fart jokes still count as funny…right?). It’s as if Angela Chase and Juno had a baby that was outfitted by Amelie and tutored by Amy Sedaris and Miranda July. Hipster mindf*ck! Read More ›
What’s up with all the babies making babies? While some blame President Bush’s insistent promotion of abstinence (or its medical term “Genitalia Imaginaris”), others think that old sleeper hit Juno is to blame. Between Jamie Lynn Spears, the Gloucester girls, and The Baby Borrowers, don’t be surprised if our next President gives an official government job to [my favorite] creepy baby photog Anne Geddes.

She may have just been the sidekick in Juno, but her star is quickly on the rise. With a slew of movies being released this year, the young ingenue may be Hollywood’s next big (but not pregnant) thing. Read More ›
It was just a matter of time, right? Actually, all these photos are really old, are only topless, and given that she actually posted all of them herself (on a blog she used to write for the Minneapolis/St. Paul City Pages), have to count as the least shocking “leaked” celebrity pictures of all time.

New York sketch group Olde English pairs with comedienne Jackie Clarke to take us “behind the scenes” of surprise hit Juno with its attention-grabbing screenwriter. Hey, did you know Diablo Cody used to be a stripper? Seriously, she was a real, live stripper - naked and everything! Read More ›
With Juno a huge box office success and now a multiple Oscar nominee, the haters are out in full force. Among their chief complaints: the film’s treatment of pregnancy, its “horribly precious” soundtrack, and especially its arch lexicon. Seriously, honest to blog! But never fear, the backlash-to-the-backlash has already begun. Read More ›
The new script from Juno scribe Diablo Cody heads into production. Transformers’ Megan Fox will star as a cheerleader who is possessed by a demon and starts eating all the boys in town. Sounds sort of like Heathers meets The Exorcist—or Juno, if Juno was a cannibal. Read More ›
The Juno screenwriter who got her start as a stripper is getting almost as much attention as her movie. Cody’s gone from a blogger to an author to a screenwriter who promises to keep making work about complex female characters. Also, her blog is pretty hilarious. Read More ›
The star of Juno has been receiving a lot of sudden attention. Must not get hopes up…must not get hopes up. But the incoming reviews of Juno seem to claim the movie lives up to the expectations. We’d be content with just staring at our favorite tomboy, Ellen Page, and our favorite tomgirl, Michael Cera for an hour and a half. Read More ›
Michael Cera from Arrested Development becomes web celebrity. George Michael from one of your (hopefully) favorite shows of all time, Arrested Development has finally come of age! And he’s an endearing scruffy little indie rocker to boot. This cradle is ready to be robbed…. Read More ›
