Where did you watch this movie?

This contemporary coming-of-age drama explores the tremendous complications and decisions faced by Juno, a whip-smart teen confronting an unplanned pregnancy by her classmate Bleeker (Michael Cera). With the help of her hot best friend Leah (Olivia Thirlby), Juno finds her unborn child a “perfect” set of parents: an affluent suburban couple, Mark and Vanessa (Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner), longing to adopt. Luckily, Juno has the total support of her parents (JK Simmons and Allison Janney) as she faces some tough decisions, flirts with adulthood and ultimately figures out where she belongs.

A comedy about growing up... and the bumps along the way.
Crew/Equipment Visible
When Juno is laying on her front windscreen at night, the reflection of the camera is visible in the window as it pans down to her in shot.

Errors in Geography
In the scene where Juno pulls the van off the highway, mountains can be seen in the background of the long shot. There are no substantial mountain ranges in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.

Errors in Geography
The bottle of Sunny D Juno is drinking in the opening is the type of bottle found in Canada with a rectangular shape rather than the circular shaped bottles found in the US, and the size is marked on the bottle in liters instead of ounces like the US bottles.

When Juno goes to see Paulie at night and mentions how hard he's studying, when the camera changes angles there is nothing on the paper when he was clearly writing when she entered the room.

The mailbox in front of Bleeker's house in which Juno and Leah put the Tic Tacs, is missing from the final shot where Juno and Bleeker are playing guitars while sitting on the steps.

As Juno and Leah sit in the trophy case talking, the amount of food on Juno's shirt changes.

When Vanessa is feeling Juno's belly at the mall, Juno's hair changes (tucked behind her ear from the front, free from behind).

When Juno turns out of the way to cry, there's a freight train moving along the highway at the beginning of the scene. And in the end of it, when Juno drives off, the box-freight cars keep showing up. But in-between, during the shots inside Juno's car, the train is gone, and you can only see the field through the driver's window.

Audio/Video Mismatch
When Juno encounters Vanessa outside in an elevator the mall scene, Juno states Vanessa's name in surprise but she mouths Jennifer (the actress' name rather than the character's name). The "J" can still be heard.

Audio/Video Mismatch
The CD of "Mott the Hoople" that Juno brings to play for Mark actually doesn't have the song "All the Young Dudes" on it, which she proceeds to play.

Character Error
Juno explains that her name comes from the wife of the Greek god Zeus. In fact, the Greek team were Zeus & Hera, the Roman team were Jupiter & Juno.

Character Error
When Juno enters labor, she shouts "Thundercats are go!", an error or more likely a mixed reference to both the American cartoon series "Thundercats ho!" and the British Supermarionation series "Thunderbirds are go!".

Character Error
When Juno is talking to Leah on the phone, she sarcastically says she is Morgan Freeman and asks if Leah has any bones that need collecting. Morgan Freeman wasn't in The Bone Collector.

Character Error
In one scene when the track team is running on the track they're running the wrong way.

Character Error
During the chromatography scene, the formula to work out the RF value is correct but an incorrect answer is given with 2 shown instead of 0.5.

Character Error
Juno says that she has heard that Snow Peak Peach flavored Boone's Farm is the best type, yet there is no such thing. There is Snow Creek Berry and Sun Peak Peach, but not Snow Peak Peach.

Factual Mistake
When Juno goes for her abortion, Su-Chin informs her that her baby has fingernails. However, it is revealed Juno is only in her second trimester and babies don't develop fingernails until 32 weeks.
It was the highest-grossing film of all five Best Picture Oscar nominees (2008).

According to Jason Reitman, in the final scene where Vanessa is drinking, it was real wine. When they finish shooting the scene, Jennifer Garner was a little bit drunk.

Michael Cera discovered that he could not successfully take a mouthful of tic-tacs and then say his lines. So he simply put the box up to his mouth but didn't ingest any of the candy.

This movie was the first movie released by Fox Searchlight Pictures to gross the $100 million mark at the box office.

J.K. Simmons said that he was so impressed with the script that he would have been happy just to play the teacher who has no spoken dialogue - anything to appear in the film.

The hamburger phone in the movie is owned by the writer, Diablo Cody.

Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day enjoyed Bren's line "You didn't have to drive out to east Jesus nowhere" so much that on Green Day's album 21st Century Breakdown he wrote a song called "East Jesus Nowhere".

This movie was shot in just 31 days.

Jennifer Garner dropped her A-list salary to a percentage point agreement for Juno when it was expected to be a small, low-grossing indie film, but the decision paid off when Juno became a breakout smash at the box office - giving Garner her best payday yet.

Juno's handwritten message in Bleeker's yearbook was actually written by Diablo Cody.

It was challenging to show all four seasons within a 30-day filming schedule. Solutions included digitally darkening spring cherry blossoms to look like summer flowers and having crew members off camera throw falling silk leaves for autumn. There was a fluke snowstorm (unusual for March in Vancouver) and three different shots were coordinated that day before the snow could melt. Since fake snow can be expensive to put in a shot, this saved the film considerable money for the winter scenes.

The original title of the film was going to be "Junebug", but was changed so it would not be confused with Amy Adams' Junebug (2005).

Ellen Page came up with Juno's hairstyle of the ponytail with long bangs on the sides of her face and did her own hair every day.

The comic book "Most Fruitful Yuki" is not real. It was dreamed up by screenwriter Diablo Cody.

No cell phones are used in the entire movie.

The animated opening title sequence was created by a company called Shadowplay and the shots of Ellen Page walking were achieved by having her walk on a treadmill which was later removed.

Jason Reitman used the different seasons to frame the story in because he thought they mirrored the three trimesters of Juno's pregnancy.
