You know The Moldy Peaches’ song Anyone Else But You ? Kiiiinda monotonous. And it totally sounds like The Surrey with a fringe on top. Chicks and ducks and geese better scurry, when I take you out in my surrey, when I take you out in my surrey with a fringe on top, You’re a part time lover and a full time friend, the monkey on your back is the latest trend, I don’t see what anyone could see in anyone else … See what I mean?
That’s not to say the song sucks. It’s just drives me a bit batty.
So I finally saw Juno. And I liked it, just like I thought I would. Oh and hey, Moondance Alexander went straight to DVD. Saw that one coming from miles away! But back to Juno: I actually cried. (Cried! I’ve officially turned into my mother.) Juno is what creepy old men would call a “firecracker”. She’s got a hamburger phone! And she loves obscure punk rock! She also fires out witty one liners with a fury! Actually that was pretty much everyone. It most cases it worked, but in some it didn’t…mostly when Rainn Wilson was blurting them out. Felt a little too Gilmore Girls at some point, no one’s on the ball that often. It was also reminiscent of Clueless and Heathers, it felt like one of those movies that really tries to break out new slang among the teenage masses. As if. Diet Cokeheads. It’ll be very! <– sooo bad. Will Home Skillet reeeally make a comeback though? For reals?
Juno, of course, has a quirky little posse and a quirky little family: J.K. Simmons aka Schillinger aka the racist ass rapist (say that 3 times real fast!) is her wise cracking supportive father. We’re not in Oz anymore Toto! And after watching Michael Cera’s performance I have come to the conclusion that he plays the same character in every movie/show. But strangely enough…I like it every time! He does this stammer/lisp thing that turns every sentence that he utters into a punchline.
Juno: Your little girlfriend gave me the stinkeye in art class yesterday.
Bleeker: Katrina’s n-not my girlfriend alright? A-and I doubt she gave you the ssstinkeye t-that’s just how her face looksss, you know? T-That’s jussst her face.
Oh the hilarity!
So yeah…watch it if you haven’t yet.
