While critics and pundits have made much of the fact that a slew of movies this year have had a seemingly pro-life bent ("Waitress," "Bella," "Knocked Up"), I think it is a disservice to lump the quirky comedy "Juno" into that category (not to mention that I don't know that I would truly classify all of those films as pro-life in intent). I believe the sleeper hit "Juno," for all of its sarcastic one liners, is about much more than a teen pregnancy. Yes, "Juno" is an inspirational movie because of its delicate treatment of a serious life decision, but it is my pick for the most inspirational movie of the year because of the clever but gentle way it gives voice to the other moral questions that plague an entire generation.
