Wow, is it sad that I'm a film major and I've seen less than half of those movies? I suck.

Really? Juno didn't make the cut? Well, I can see it _is_ a bit straight-froward. And witty dialogue can't carry the film alone.. But I would like to add that I've experienced a tremendous after-effect... I've been saying "fo' shizz" and "totes" ever since christmas, the day I saw the movie. And for that, I thank Diablo Cody.

Juno was #21. I think I need to see it again, because it's highly possible that I'm just sick of people professing it to be the funniest movie, like, EVERS. You know, like Napoleon Dynamite.
