Nice, intelligent comedy

Michael Cera is a great actor, and this movie is no different. Youth in Revolt is more subtle than you would think, given the title and premise. Nick is a 16 year old with not many friends, a screwed up family, and worst of all, he is a virgin. Upon meeting Sheeni, he falls in love with her instantly, and will do anything to be with her. This involves creating an alter ego, and becoming an outlaw. My only real complaint is that it seemed to me that they put just enough F-words in this to get it rated R. The swearing could have been cut down to make this PG-13, to appeal to a broader audience. This is a simple teen comedy, but adults will like it too, it's very well written with a good plot, good actors that fit their characters, and plenty of laughs. Check it out, you won't regret it.

Charming

Another film with Michael Cera as a somewhat odd and misfit teenager. Despite being 21 here, Cera still make you believe he's 16. With "Youth in Revolt", frequent TV series director Miguel Arteta - assisted by screenwriter Gustin Nash and C.D. Payne, author of the original novel - delivers a fun, weird and heart- warming little romantic comedy-drama. Appearances by Zach Galifianakis, Justin Long, Ray Liotta and Steve Buscemi add to the sense of strange humour, but the film really belongs to Cera and his special charm.

A quietly engaging tale of a boy who falls in love with a girl

Youth in Revolt The age-old tale of a young mans endless pursuit to lose his virginity with a decidedly sardonic twist. Michael Cera plays an exceptional character that instantaneously worships the perfect girl that he meets in the right setting. Portia Doubleday, the paramour to Cera, is a hapless young girl with notions of romance that can only come from the lonely teenage girl. The story rises and falls with the alter ego of Cera, Francois. Francois drives the movie with a cool intellect and bravado unmatched. It is quite interesting to see such a quiet and gangly hero portrayed, as opposed to the archetypal male running the show, it gives us unusual types something to hope for even though we know it is only a movie. The dialogue in particular, driven by Michael Cera, but carried throughout the cast drips with sarcasm and a quiet humor that I appreciate. It is much more preferable to the bombastic nature of the typical high school coming of age story. All in all Youth in Revolt was a mildly refreshing drink from a glass that has been passed around for decades.
