    I've seen it, and I enjoyed it very much. Ellen Page is practically flawless in her role; she delivers each line with such a sharp wittiness.

    I just got home from seeing this. I think that I would have to classify it as a perfect movie.

    The casting was impecable. Every single actor in it came across as having been born to play his or her role. Ellen Page was outstanding, but so was everyone else. Several of the actors in it - including Jason Bateman, Jennifer Garner, and Allison Janney really brought something extra to the movie because of the perceptions that the public has of each of them away from this film. Those perceptions were somehow woven into the characters they played to add some extra depth to the characters.

    From a writing standpoint, this is one of those movies that makes you really appreciate what a great screen play is. It should be used in film schools as an example of what it takes. The characters are all developed in a way that you just know that the writer felt she knew each of them personally. Each behaves, responds, and talks in exactly the way you'd expect. The story takes twists and turns that are a little expected, but in a surprising way. It keeps you interested and emotionally invested throughout. And the dialogue is simply brillant. It is written so true to life, and so true to character that you almost sit there in awe of the fact that one person came up with all those words.

    Both the music and direction of the movie add an extra special umph. Some of the style choices made make it feel a little more timeless than it may actually be. In some of the props used, shooting style, etc, I think that most anyone can totally relate to the high school experience regardless of what decade they were in school. And somehow, mixed in there in a way that is not obvious but has just enough little hints to make you smile, there's a little homage to several "pregnant teenager" movies of the past including For Keeps and Immediate Family.

    Oh ... it's just a brillant, brillant movie. I can't say I love it enough. It irritates me to know that I either have to pay another $13 to see it, or have to wait the endless waiting time to get it on DVD.

    I brought my tween-age son and daughter kids to see this movie last night. This was a great movie that we all enjoyed and were able to have a great discussion about. I agree that the characters wre very well developed. While I was surprised at some of the twists, our discussions afterword left us believing that really made sense. I would truly recommend any parent of a teen to see this with your child...

    One of my favorite movies that I've seen. Ellen Page was great in this movie. I like the fact they picked an actress who can actually pass for 16 rather than someone who is so obviously in their late 20s, like they do on most shows with supposed teens.

    Saw it with my mom and loved it. The only (minor) problem I had with it was some of the dialogue. Teenagers sometimes use regular words too.

    I enjoyed the dialogue in the movie, not so much from a "Yes! That's how teenagers talk" standpoint, but just because it was fun. While all teens don't talk like that, nor do those who do talk likethat all the time, almost all of us as teens had some sort of unique vernacular with our friends. The way they talked took you back to those bonds of friendship in those years, whether they were true to life with regards to specific or not.
