Juno Juno = Pretty In Pink?

I realize this opinion might not be favorably viewed by the regulars here, but I think these two movies are REALLY similar and don't understand why Juno got so much more critical acclaim.

I don't want to bog down this board with all my reasons why. If anyone cares, you can read about it on my blog at link.

Comments and dissenting opinions are certainly welcome. :)

Although they are both very similar in genre, and have similar themes, Juno touches on more controversial issues like abortion and teen pregnancy. The plot of pretty in pink is more simply boy meets girl. Juno arguably is easier to connect with as well from a modern day stand point, Andie is particularly harsh to Duckie and isn't that relatable as she doesn't grow as a character. She just conforms to social pressure going to prom and stereo typically falling in love with the rich kid.
