(de) wrote: Moraleja: No le cuides el hijo de una drogadicta a tu amiga lesbiana que se lo quita a su madre porque lo maltrata... te meteras en broncas. "La Otra Familia" (Loza, 2011) vale la pena porque aborda con candidez un tema social de importancia y del que se platica mucho, pero se actua poco: la adopcion en Mexico. Es una novela contada en casi dos horas, e incluye una excelente actuacion de Nailea Norvind (como siempre), y Bruno Loza, como el pequeno Hendrik, que se roba cada escena en la que aparece. Episodica, concreta (aunque con algunas lagunas en el guion), pero efectiva en sus partes dramaticas y comicas, estas ultimas gracias a Silverio Palacios y Carmen Salinas. (texto intencionalmente sin acentos).
(es) wrote: Yes, the plot is horribly predicable, convenient and unremarkable. But in the end, Music and Lyrics gets the job done by being both cute and crucially, funny.
(au) wrote: Must have been in a bad mood when I wrote my original review 5 years ago. Juno is excellent and a refreshing take on teenage pregnancy from the female perspective. Ellen Page shines as does the rest of the cast. The music and settings are a little too quirky, but I felt Reitman adapted Diablo Cody's screenplay onto the screen very well.
