From iSteve commenter Seth Largo, who gets what I was trying to say in my brief review of the movie Tully with Charlize Theron, which was written by Diablo Cody and directed by Jason Reitman:
Cody and Reitman are producing some of the most slyly conservative films in Hollywood. It’s a wonder they can make traditionalist themes so relevant to contemporary audiences.
Juno (have the baby, you won’t regret it)
Young Adult (not having a baby sucks; suburban life > urban striving)
Up in the Air (being alone sucks, get married)
Paradise (small-town Christian values really aren’t so bad after all)
Labor Day (fathers are really important)

She comes across just as Steve has described her: a libertine id coupled to conservative wisdom.
By the way, Jason Reitman’s dad Ivan Reitman directed a bunch of right of center Bill Murray and Arnold Schwarzenegger comedies, such as Ghostbusters and Twins.
