MONDAY MOVIE MEME
Molly looked around for a weekly meme about movies and did not have any luck. So therefore she decided to start her own! Andy will play along as well - hopefully you will too. Go to your blog and create your own post on the topic, linking back to us in your post, then come back and leave a link to your post here in our Comments section.

This week's movie topic is all about Favorites...
A while ago, Sandy @ You've GOTTA Read This suggested we do a post about our favorite movie viewed year-to-date. She has one in particular that she wanted to gush about and I promised her I would get to this topic. I meant to do it right at the end of June at the halfway point and then forgot. So without further ado, here is our favorite movie that we have watched so far in 2011. Share on your blog your favorite YTD movie - not necessarily one released this year, just a new-to-you film viewed this year, and link back here so that others can find you. And don't forget to visit your fellow participants!
- Juno (2007) - We are constantly behind the times here with our movie viewing. We watch a lot of movies, don't get me wrong. But we usually don't get to them until a couple of years after they come out. I put new releases on our Netflix queue so that when they get come out on DVD they will automatically get added to our viewing list so I don't forget about them. And then they get buried at the bottom. Which is why four years after its highly acclaimed release, we finally got around to watching this terrific little film.
The cast was great. The story was quirky and funny, even for such a topic as teen pregnancy. In fact, it was quite touching without being sappy. And we both really enjoyed the entire movie. I can see why it got so much hype. And I'm glad it lived up to it. Expectations tend to balloon pretty high when you give a movie four years of build up before watching it ;0)
