Jenny & Juno is just a cute simple movie. There is a little bit of conflict between the couple as they come to terms with their decision they made (sleeping together) and the consequences of that decision. Other then seeing how they make it through and what they go through to have the baby there's not much else to the plot.

The acting was fine and the actors made thier characters believable. read more This movie wasn't that enjoyable to watch so i'm not sure if i'd watch it again or not.

I'm having a hard time with my thoughts regarding this movie. I'm really not sure how to rate it.
On the one hand this movie is a really sweet, young love, romance story. I liked that a lot. It was so cute and both main characters did a very good job portraying their age and love for each other.

Now, on the other hand, the love and story seems incongruent to what read more is actually happening. Jenny is 15?Korean years? and she becomes pregnant. This is where I had the problem with the story. When it ended I really was left wondering what the point of the whole movie was.
The pregnancy situation was EXTREMELY UNREALISTIC,IMO.There were no consequences to becoming a teen parent. No moral, physical, social, etc. consequences. The girl didn't even get morning sickness or lose her flat stomach. Having a baby is a beautiful thing, but it is also difficult and a huge responsibility. The movie showed none of that. Everything was sweet, rainbows, and roses.From what I could see. There was really no conflict, and the little conflict there was, was not presented strongly enough.
Were they promoting teen pregnancy? Sex education?.IDK Even the sound track was very childish. There was even a scene were they show a video on what happens in an abortion that was very one sided. I'm not saying that I agree or disagree with abortion, just that the scene was presented in what in the USA is called, ProLife, kind of way.

Anyway, it was sweet, but the topic was handled in very unrealistically.

    It's a good story to learn about loyalty, but it's a really BAD story to learn how teenagers or good peoples should life..

    I watched thisba while ago and I actually didn't like it. For me, it was not believeable. Maybe it is just the korean culture but I find it a little stupid when there was a teenage pregnancy but the main couple were still so awkward to even hold hands. Or kiss. I don't know, maybe it's just me.

    The ending totally ruined it for me. It was just so far from reality and it just wasn't even good. It didn't even make sense. It seemed like the writers had no idea how to end the movie so they just shot random scenes and put it together. I was disappointed tbh.

    it was cute at first and the soundtrack was cute , but then soon at the end there seemed to be no logic whats so ever , things happened that made you confused and question the whole point of the movie

    This was adorable. Something lighthearted to watch with a happy ending. I've read the comments about how people should take teen pregnancy seriously, and I agree. But sometimes you want to just see that Romeo & Juliet story play out and see the happy ending. This was obviously not a tragedy, it was a romantic comedy.

    It's true that they were reckless, and you do see some of the negative outcomes related to this issue. The anti-abortion video, and how they would have been against the adults 'killing' the unborn child if they told them about it. How they hadn't even decided what they wanted to be, and now they will have to raise a child.

    We will never see the real outcome of them raising a child and continuing to go to school. But there are single parents that do that everyday. Juno stepped up and supported her, took care of her needs, and realized that he would have to take responsibility.

    I think it has plenty of life lessons, while still remaining lighthearted and loveable to watch. You should also remember, it's a movie, not true life :P

    Yes, let's make a movie about two 15 year olds getting pregnant and how great that is and how supportive the entire world is about that. God forbid a dose of reality might raise it's head. The couple were definitely cute and very sweet together. But the overall message of the movie was a fail for me. Teenage pregnancy isn't really what I call something to celebrate. I understand it's just a comedy/romance, but 15? It was just a bit too much for me. Still...it was sweet in it's own way...the two leads pretty much saved it. It is the one time I will say that the American version, Juno, was much better. Funny yet realistic, it was what I wish this one had been. Just me. Still, I recommend watching it. Definitely a pleasant couple hours.

    It was cute, but something felt missing. Maybe I expected too much knowing that this is from the same maker of the super cute "My Little Bride". But anyway, still a worth watching movie.

    it was hard to keep watching... this movie has nothing to proud with... Acting is very bad, Story is interesting by itself but they can't develop it normaly in the movie so it's bad too, music not blows out,... I'll never rewatch this ..

    Overall 4 /10

    i like this movie.well, this story focuses on two youths who really love each other. it doesn`t have a complicated story plot but it gives a morale lesson that tackles on youth premarital pregnancy.

    it was a cute movie. I loved that they main characters decision but I did not like that it made it too simple for them to keep the baby. I did not portray realistically what it really is like to have a bay

    There were times I was so bored that I literally thought. "Oh I'll go do some dishes and than watch the rest later." I'm not joking I'm pretty sure if I had gotten up during any of the boring moments I would have never returned. Other times it was cute and funny.

    I liked it a lot!! The father of the child (juno) was really sweet!! But it was kind of weird that she didn't get a huge pregnancy belly...
