Youth in Revolt Reviews

John Hanlon
Big Hollywood

An uneven story and crass comedy could leave viewers revolted.

It's very funny to be honest and most of the characters are perfectly cast, but Youth in Revolt is a movie in which literally nothing happens. At no point are any of the characters or plotlines developed and most of them are abandoned towards the end.

Michael Cera goes to the sweet-tempered high school persona well once (or twice) too often with, sigh, Nick Twisp, who lives in hormonal agony with his sex-obsessed divorced mother (Jean Smart) and her nasty boyfriend.

It's not that the film is fatally flawed, but the tone is uneven, the satire is blunt, the comedy rarely generates more than feeble laughs, and the lead character never comes fully to life.

Tries too hard to be quirky and fails.

But even apart from the film's vaguely insane endorsement of love at all costs, there's the fact that much of it is simply not very funny.

Arteta's faithfulness to Payne's text, themes and visions never gel as a wholly satisfying film.

The whole thing just seems as if it's trying too hard.

More of the same from Cera, and not terribly funny to boot.

Smug, dead-air-riddled adaptation of C.D. Payne's novel

Michael Cera, practically the poster-child for this strain of hip comedies, plays yet another awkward teen looking to win the girl, but like the film itself, he's spinning his wheels a bit.

NYC Movie Guru

Whimsical, mostly engaging and occasionally funny, but it's too uneven, pretentious, and lacks genuine poignancy as a coming of age story.

Peaches Geldof would probably love it. And film reviews don't get any more depressing than that.

Never quite as clever, quirky or funny as it thinks it is.

Lessons of Darkness

[Its] classic cinema shoutouts and gaggle of off-kilter characters feel like retreads.

Little White Lies

A little too manic for its own good, Youth in Revolt is restless and unruly. Too often forcibly mean-spirited, it only elicits a handful of genuine laughs.

As for Michael Cera's career? Look a falling star! Make a wish!

Youth in Revolt? Forget that! Let's focus on critic in revolt. Even a little [Michael] Cera is too much.

There's little to care about in Youth in Revolt, and even less to laugh with; the film lost in a stupor it never successfully navigates out of.
