Sort of. The dialogue's what I'd call heightened. If you removed all the "likes" "whatevers" and "y'knows" and upgraded the average wit and vocabulary quotient by about 20% you'd be getting pretty close to contemporary teenspeak.

You didn't want to 'adopt' her, then Malcolm?

I saw this the other night. An annoying part, which began early and remained throughout, was Page's character - I agree with some here that she just wasn't talking like a 16 year old. And it wasn't the sarcasm, nor the nature of it, it was her most elaborate use of language she was using when speaking to all types of people. It was constant and just not believable, and it took away from her humour. All the more frustrating was that amongst these high-brow comedic soliloquays, we had the scene where she visits the prospective adoptive couple for the first time and behaves like the aforementioned Beavis or Butthead at the sight of the house interior.

Aside from that, it's a fine movie. I loved how her boyfriend was scripted - all his conversations were cleverly conducted to highlight his insecurities, with them always being face-to-face and with no opportunity to escape the position he's been put in. The other main characters were well-scripted too - the stepmother and friend in particular. The father was excellent, but we didn't see enough of him.

Everyone in the movie spoke that way though. The kid in the corner store who sold her the pregnancy kit, her best friend. Even her parents spoke in slightly curlicued language just not quite the same kind as she did. It was delicious come to think of it I'd like to adopt her best friend too.

It should be noted that real people in Elizabethan times didn't talk the way Shakespeare wrote, and yet that doesn't mean his plays are annoying.

I enjoyed Juno - certainly a class above Knocked Up (since people are doing comparisons), and I didn't predict the ending, which can only be a good thing. I also didn't find any problem with her dialogue - whether strictly realistic or not, it certainly wasn't jarring, and that's all that matters. Oh, and Michael Cera is ace.

Because Michael Cera proves that Impossible is the Opposite of Possible (if you don't "get it," you probably haven't seen this).

those videos are pretty funny, but they don't have much to do with bleeker.

There was a remake of All the Young Dudes though, which may have come out in 1988.
