Corrected entry: When first being introduced to Paulie Bleeker, he is shown putting on his running outfit including the wristbands. Before he puts both wristbands on, you can see an elastic mark on his right wrist where the wrist band was in a previous shot (as he's only waking up, he wasn't previously wearing one). This was obviously not the first take of such a shot.

Correction: It takes a fair bit of time to acquire a mark like that. Putting on and almost immediately removing the wristbands for the next take would not give them enough time to cause such a mark. More probably, and conveniently within the context of the film, the mark could come from a watch that was worn to bed, but removed before Bleeker began his morning exercise routine.

Corrected entry: In the scene at the mall, Leah says "Vanessa Loring as in the Pennysaver Lorings?" But, if you look at the ad in the paper earlier in the movie, the ad just says 'Mark and Vanessa'.

Correction: This simply means that Juno told her Vanessa's last name at some point earlier, and is not a mistake.

Corrected entry: The comic Mark gives Juno (Most Fruitful Yuki) is priced $2.95, despite the fact he tells Juno he picked it up in Japan while touring with his band. (01:04:05)

Correction: Unless Mark elaborates and explains that it was made in Japan as well, there is nothing wrong about his story. It might have been brought over by a collector in Japan, someone sold it to him while they were in Japan etc.

Corrected entry: In the beginning when Juno's father is identified as working in heating and air-conditioning and is shown walking past his work vehicle, the side indicates "MacGuff's HVAC". When Juno goes for her first ultrasound and then shows it to Mark (the adoptive father), the ultrasound says "Juno McGuff" at the top. (00:15:20)

Correction: The radiologist who entered the name "McGuff" into the system misspelled Juno's name. Happens all the time.

Corrected entry: At one part of the film, the Jason Bateman character shows Juno a VHS tape of a rare horror film. However, the tape somehow fills his widescreen plasma/LCD TV. Since when are VHS tapes capable of displaying in 16:9 enhanced widescreen? Yes, technically they could have been watching on zoom or 16:9 stretch, but the image on the screen looks unstretched and too good for zoom mode, especially for VHS.

Correction: Quite easily. Using my setup as an example I have my set top box connected to my VCR. The image is being presented like a DVD player in which if the channel being broadcast is in widescreen then the image being recorded on video will also be in widescreen.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Juno calls her friend to tell her she is pregnant, her friend asks "Juno?" to which Juno replies, "No, it's Morgan Freeman. Do you have some bones that need collecting?" This is a reference to the movie "The Bone Collector". However it was Denzel Washington, not Morgan Freeman, who starred in that movie.

Correction: That can be put down to a character mistake.

Corrected entry: Juno claims that she is named after the wife of Zeus, the chief God in Greek mythology. Juno was, however, the wife of Jupiter, the chief god in Roman mythology.

Correction: Juno said she doesn't know if it was right so it is a charcter mistake.


Corrected entry: In the scene when Juno and Paulie are making out by the track, Paulie's hand is in his sweatshirt pocket then the shot changes and his hand is now around Juno's waist without enough time for it to have moved that far.


Correction: No, in a close up shot on her waist you can see him doing it.

Continuity mistake: As Juno is walking into the abortion clinic, an exterior shot shows that there is only one entrance door. The shot of her entering from inside the clinic shows a double-door entrance. (00:17:50)

Trivia: The song that Juno and Bleeker sing at the end of the movie is called "Anyone Else" by the Moldy Peaches. The original song is played by a girl (Kimya Dawson) and a boy (Adam Green) but in the movie Bleeker sings the girl's part and Juno the guy's part.
