Ellen Page and Michael Cera in ‘Juno’
Not since John Cusack and Ione Skye in ‘Say Anything’ has there been a cuter onscreen couple than Ellen Page and Michael Cera as Juno and Bleeker in indie hit ‘Juno.’ Orange Tic-Tac loving Bleeker gets Juno pregnant after they decide sex is more entertaining than watching the ‘The Blair Witch Project’ on Starz. We’ve all been there, right?
The two have a shaky relationship even before the pregnancy; Bleeker’s mom thinks Juno is no good for her son, and Bleeker is the epitome of awkward high school boy. There’s palpable tension between them throughout the movie, as Juno decides whether or not Bleeker is the right guy for her.
In the end, she can’t resist Bleeker’s color-safe bleached gold short shorts, and the two get together during track practice with an awkward yet endearing kiss. But the real ‘aww’ factor comes at the end, after Juno has her baby; Bleeker comes in and cuddles with a sweaty and post-baby delivering Juno.
Cera is, as always, charming in his self-conscious sort of way (though hopefully he won’t start getting typecasted), and Page is his perfect dynamic and outspoken compliment, or as Juno would say, ‘he is the cheese to my macaroni.’
