Free orange tic tacs and Ebert love!

"THE BEST PICTURE OF THE YEAR. How can I choose this warm-hearted comedy about a pregnant teenager, when the year was rich with serious drama? I tried out other titles in the No. 1 position, but my heart told me I had to be honest: This was my true love, and I could not be unfaithful. It is so hard to make a great comedy at all, and harder still to make one that is intelligent, quick, charming, moving and yes, very, very funny. It begins with the pacing of a screwball comedy and it ends as a portrait of characters we have come to love. It is so very rare to sit with an audience that leans forward with delight and is in step with every turn and surprise of an uncommonly intelligent screenplay. It is so rare to hear laughter that is surprised, unexpected and delighted. So rare to hear it coming during moments of recognition, when characters reflect exactly what we’d be thinking, just a moment before we get around to thinking it. So rare to feel the audience joined into one warm, shared enjoyment. So rare to hear a movie applauded."- Roger Ebert, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

To celebrate Roger's (and our) love of JUNO this week, Monday January 7 through Thursday January 10: the first 25 people seated at the late show of JUNO will receive a free package of orange Tic-Tacs. Trust us, you're REALLY going to want those orange Tic-Tacs! If you've already seen JUNO and you want to bring a friend, these are the shows to come to!
