Michael Cera adopts a mischievous alter ego in an attempt to reunite with his dream girl in a familiarly peculiar story.

What Culture

Playing on feelings and impulses that I'm sure we all relate to, a witty and playful portrait of teen love emerges out of a less exciting teen comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Nick Twisp is no Scott Pilgrim, but this is another witty ensemble comedy that successfully reinvigorates that most benighted of genres, the teen film.

Story of "bad-boy" teen is funny, but also rough and raw.

Reel Film Reviews
July 25, 2010 engaging and faithful adaptation of Payne's admittedly superior novel.

Deviates from the teen comedy norm and becomes something darker, edgier, and more unexpectedly funny.

Makes early claims for the best comedy of 2010.

Cera's hilarious performance as a modern day Holden Caulfield makes Youth in Revolt a must-see for any fan of hipster comedies.

In an irreverent and adorable coming-to-maturity story, Michael Cera displays versatility in a dual role.
Andrew Male
Empire Magazine

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

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

February 5, 2010
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.

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.

Digital Spy
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Heat Magazine
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.

Jane Crowther
Total Film
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
Terry Staunton
Radio Times
February 5, 2010
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.
