Juno

Question: What is the (store) name on the slushie cup? It was in the extras on the DVD but I can't find it anywhere on the net. I was thinking it was something like 'Lick & Gulp', 'Slurp & Gulp' or something like that.

Answer: Slurp & Slush - it's on this picture: http://www.axelmusic.com/resources/covers/back/024543506874.jpg.

Question: What does the note Juno writes to Vanessa say? I could never read it.

Answer: Juno tells Vanessa that she's still willing to go through with the adoption if Vanessa is also willing ("If you're still in, I'm still in") - knowing that Vanessa will be a divorced single mom. She knows how much the baby means to Vanessa.

Question: One of the questions about this movie pertains to why Vanessa was shocked when Juno said she saw their adoption ad in The Pennysaver. My question is: is it possible that Mark submitted the ad to the Pennysaver thinking no one would see it so he could avoid becoming a father? Because obviously Vanessa had difficulty conceiving a child for whatever reason and at the end of the movie Mark (finally) expresses his disinterest and "not feeling ready".

Answer: Mark probably submitted it without telling Vanessa. They have been trying to adopt for a while but he didn't think that it would happen right away (some couples wait years to find a birth mother), hence his feeling unprepared.

Question: Why did it appear that Juno and Mark Loring were sweet on each other? What's the deal with that?

Answer: His wife was over-bearing- a control freak. She wouldn't let him have interests or hobbies that didn't fit her view of a proper, professional life and home. Juno reminded him of his time before marriage, when he could be fun, weird, artistic- whatever he wanted to be and do was possible. Naturally, Juno's free spirit appealed to him and he was drawn to her.

Question: This is more of a question about adoption, but if Juno decided later that she wanted to know how the baby was doing, could she just ask Vanessa, or does she have to go through a procedure to receive updates on the baby?

Answer: That would depend on how far Vanessa was going to go to keep the adoption closed. She would obviously be PHYSICALLY able to ask questions, but if it is truly closed, Vanessa would be under no obligation to give info. But since she had welcomed Juno into her home, and gave personal info, I would think she would be willing to offer some information in the future. We never did see the outcome of the final adoption documents, it is possible it was partially open, since Juno developed a relationship with Vanessa eventually. Usually a closed adoption blocks the birth mother from knowing any personal info of the adoptive parents, but she knows the name and address, so this case is obviously different than the norm.

Question: When Juno first meets the Lorings, she mentions that she saw them in the Pennysaver, and, suddenly, Vanessa looks very shocked. Why?

Brad Premium member

Chosen answer: Because she is wealthy and she considers the Pennysaver to be "beneath" her. Their adoption request was submitted to a syndicate and that syndicate printed the request in all of its publications, the Pennysaver being one of them; Vanessa did not choose to appear in the Pennysaver.

Question: Why was the garment Bleeker pulls away from his head, in the scene with the yearbook, bloody? (I am making the assumption that the reason it was red was because of blood.)

Answer: He was holding Juno's underwear from the night she got pregnant.

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.
