Youth in Revolt Reviews

It's chaotic and episodic, but this is Cera's star turn. Superbad meets Fight Club? That'll do it.

February 5, 2010
The tone throughout is moderately quirky rather than full-on teen-flick vulgarian, bolstered by indie-cred cameos.

A treat for Cera fans and an amusing diversion for the rest of us. Especially those of us happy to laugh at our inner pretentious teenager.

February 5, 2010
In a wickedly witty dual role in the funniest teen flick in a long time, Cera finally seems to loosen up and have some fun.

It is very silly, and it may take you some time to tune in to the giggle wavelength. Once you have, it's very funny.

February 5, 2010
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.
February 5, 2010
A regularly ribtickling but ultimately unsatisfying ride into the realms of teen angst - but one that showcases the undoubted talents of Michael Cera when he has the opportunity to play against type.

February 5, 2010
A fresh, funny take on the classic coming-of-age tale, and a chance for Cera to show us what he's made of.

If you're looking for constant chuckles, memorable scenes, quirky dialogue and hilarious characters then get youthful, get some sweeties and get involved.

February 5, 2010
Whimsical, saucy, funny and achingly embarrassing, this is a beguiling if derivative goodboy- spins-out farce. But Cera really should make this his dweeb swansong lest he outstay his welcome.

Gustin Nash's script takes several well-aimed pot shots at typical teen-movie conventions, but has the tendency to occasionally wallow in the crude humour of the American Pie films.

February 5, 2010
This is yet another of those Hollywood coming-of-age movies where no one grows up. I've seen worse, but that's my problem.
February 5, 2010
The whole thing's a terrible mess and Cera's star, once rapidly rising, is now almost in freefall.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 5, 2010
Funny in a casual way and charming in an oddball way.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 5, 2010
The characters and story drive the comedy; the dialogue brings the nuanced grace notes.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
February 5, 2010
The contrast between Nick and his bad angel whips up a pleasing comedy of delinquency, flavoured along the way by reliable character turns from Zach Galifianakis, Steve Buscemi, Jean Smart and Ray Liotta. But it's Cera who pulls the thing together.

February 5, 2010
The initial wit is replaced by youthful high jinks, animated interludes and some incredibly convoluted plotting. A shame really because for the first half hour this looked like comedy gold.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 5, 2010
Part teen sex romp, part dark indie comedy, Youth In Revolt is never quite sure of itself, but it is good fun.
February 5, 2010
[Cera's] a fresh enough performer to hold centre stage in comedies like this.

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