Me vs that girl you think you know.

I have now had 3 people tell me that they can't believe that I didn't like Juno that much.
Fine, I'm a pretentious music listening, thrift store shopping, Michael Cera adorer, so maybe this should be right up my alley? I can buy that as reasoning. However this is NOT the proffered reasoning.

The reason that these people think I should love Juno is that I am just like her.
Worse than that, I have been told that maybe they liked the character Juno because she reminded them of me.

I know that being smart and spunky and full of music references should be complimentary... and yet I do not like it at all.

Not one little bit.

Don't get me wrong. I liked the movie. However, Juno was a pretentious nieve child. I also found her wit to be a little unbelievable. I could see where you would think being compared to her was unfavorabe.

Dude. Thank you.

Additionally, she had this weird standard that she held people to. An aesthetic standard.

I did not like that.
