Youth in Revolt Reviews

May 17, 2010
Deviates from the teen comedy norm and becomes something darker, edgier, and more unexpectedly funny.
April 15, 2010
Makes early claims for the best comedy of 2010.
April 6, 2010
Cera's hilarious performance as a modern day Holden Caulfield makes Youth in Revolt a must-see for any fan of hipster comedies.
March 25, 2010
In an irreverent and adorable coming-to-maturity story, Michael Cera displays versatility in a dual role.
March 20, 2010
When Francois Dillinger is on screen, the movie comes alive...the rest of the time it's that post-Napoleon Dynamite sort of plodding study of eccentricity.
March 19, 2010
Michael Cera's act got old awful fast, didn't it?
March 12, 2010
I'm now officially done caring whether Michael Cera loses his virginity. So, it seems in this hit-and-miss comedy, is Cera.
February 28, 2010
Smug, dead-air-riddled adaptation of C.D. Payne's novel
February 19, 2010
The whole thing just seems as if it's trying too hard.
February 5, 2010
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.
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.
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.
February 5, 2010
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.
February 5, 2010
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.
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.
