I hate to be that guy — no, I don’t — but, after seeing *Juno* over a dozen times, I feel I must draw attention to a “glaring” set of errors in “the script”:http://www.scribd.com/doc/2251012/Juno-Script and hence the movie, all in one phrase. I’ve repeated this quote several times with an admitted ignorance to the object:

bq. …and she always smells like methylmethacrylate…

  1. It is two words, methyl methacrylate.
  2. Methyl methacrylate is actually a compound used to make plastics like plexiglas and PVC pipe. (It would make more sense for her dad, Mac, to smell like methyl methacrylate.)
  3. The word she should have used is methyl acrylate which is “present in nail lacquer”.
  4. Juno pronounces it “methyl methacralyte”. My chemistry knowledge is limited, but I don’t think there is such a thing. (Any chemist who wants to correct me, please do.)

IMDb avenger to the rescue!

Now that my world is shattered, I have to decide if I should quote the movie directly or corrected for the sake of science.

Dear Diablo Cody- Shame, shame.
