- ↑ Roger Ebert "Juno's Reitman on Ellen Page: She's the real thing. Fearless" 12/8/07Jason Reitman says: "I spent summers in the editing room, watching how films come together. I was very fortunate. I made a lot of shorts and commercials in my 20s, and I was offered a lot of movies, but my career would have gone in the wrong direction. 'Dude, Where's My Car?' was offered to me twice. It was a sexy idea, being a professional director, but I didn't do it. Making that decision time and time again, I got the career I have now."
