Philippians 4:8, "Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things."

An anonymous reader told me that I should reconsider Juno as a virtuous movie. Reason: it's one redeeming virtue is that the protagonist decides to have her baby, but there is little virtue elsewhere. I agree. Furthermore, there is not a single good male role model in the film. Again I agree. Although this may work as a warning about watching movies on trans-Atlantic flights (when I watched Juno), because I tend to rate movies higher when I'm flying... hmm... still, I think there is value in the example set by the young woman. I'll trust everyone to figure out the rest about the males who lack a sense of responsibility and leadership.
