    So they’ve nixed the exclamation point, then?

    I actually kind of like this a little bit.

    That’s a bit edgier than the tone of the trailer suggests.

    I love Ellen Page so I’ll be seeing this.

    I think it could get into Best Picture now that there’s ten spots!

    “So they’ve nixed the exclamation point, then?”

    Thank god. I hate it when there is unnecessary punctuation on film titles. “(500) Days of Summer” and “The Informant!” are two extreme violators.

    This seems to bear too much of a resemblance to “Juno”, but it doesn’t look bad.

    I think the tone of this film seems like a good fit for both Barrymore and Page right now. Smart for Barrymore to make her first foray into directing with something fun, and smart for Page to follow Juno with something non-baity.

    I dig it except for the redundant title. Ellen Page is as cute as a button, which is to say not sexually attractive but very cute. And underrated, since she’s increasingly being asked for the same performance every time.

    Also a film isn’t going to cast her mother properly until they go with Janeane Garofalo.

    ***“(500) Days of Summer” and “The Informant!” are two extreme violators.***

    Except it works. And makes sense (at least in the case of the former, can’t vouch for “Informant!” yet).

    It’s quite cute. Love the purple and green.

    How does this share a resemblance to “Juno” outside of it starring Ellen Page as an outcast? Was there something in the trailer that I missed?
