At Last, ‘Juno’ Is Getting Its Own Video Game

Video-game blogs Gamespot and Joystiq are reporting today that $100 million teen-pregnancy comedy Juno could soon be making its way to your Nintendo Wii. While common sense tells us that the developers will eventually realize they've made a terrible mistake and call the whole thing off, we'd like to, for a moment, imagine the awful possibilities of such a game. Will it be the world's easiest Guitar Hero knockoff, in which players try to hit only off-key notes in Moldy Peaches songs? An action game that challenges you to fend off Jason Bateman's advances by throwing hamburger phones and calling people "homeskillet"? Or will gamers be asked to drink a gallon of Sunny Delight, then use their Wiimotes as a home pregnancy test? Man, we hope we never have to find out.
