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

I love this new breed of dirty movie. It goes beyond leering, beyond sexism, to the core tension of a culture that ricochets between Puritanism and promiscuity. And it has in Michael Cera a sterling mascot.

A clever and often riotous burst of cynicism that pushes, let's face it, some pretty questionable ideas.

Cera may be trapped in his unchanging persona, but no more than this picture is walled in by its sitcom conventions.

Youth in Revolt is a teen fantasy filled with lust, imagination, frustration and lots of laughs, artfully made and superbly played.

Some may find such elements desperate or calculated in their quirky-cuteness, but I think they add to the movie's efforts to evoke the surrealism and excruciating intensity of, as the title puts it, youth in revolt.

Mildly diverting rather than uproarious, the film still stands out among teen sex comedies for its low-key approach to antic material.

From The Catcher in the Rye to Rushmore, it's a story we've seen in better versions before.
