At 16, Nick Twisp is wry about his teen funk: he lives in Oakland with his sex-addled mother; his father’s child support is her meal ticket. While camping in Ukiah, Nick meets Sheeni: for him, it’s love at first sight. Nick has to figure out how to get his father a job in Ukiah, then how to get sent to live with his father, then how to get close to Sheeni, whose religious parents may want her sent away from temptation to a boarding school. There’s also Sheeni’s all-American boyfriend to contend with. Overwhelmed by the challenges, Nick’s about to give up when he conjures an alter ego who whispers revolt into his ear. Nick is not altogether hapless, but can this end well?

Film Review

I really wanted to like 'Youth in Revolt' since it began with a likable protagonist, Nick Twisp (in another typical Michael Cera 'insecure with woman' role) and his love interest, Sheeni Saunders (played by attractive newcomer, Portia Doubleday). Also in the mix is a quirky supporting cast including such luminaries as Steve Buscemi, Zach Galifianakis, Ray Liotta and Justin Long.One is immediately drawn to Nick and Sheeni with their intellectual discussions focusing particularly on film (Nick loves art house Japanese director Ozu and Sheeni is a committed Francophile, with a particular infatuation for the famed French actor Jean-Paul Belmondo). You would never guess that Nick and Sheeni were so cerebral and liberal minded, considering the background of their parents. Nick's mother Estelle has taken up with a low-life boyfriend, Jerry (Galifianakis) who has just sold a lemon of a car to three sailors who want their money back. Jerry and Estelle with Nick in tow,…

Like some previous reviewers have noted, if you don't enjoy Michael Cera, stay away from this one. I would also recommend that if you don't like some of John Hughes earlier films, you might also not enjoy this movie. I like both but Cera more than Hughes. However, I don't know how long that will be true. I first saw Michael in Arrested Development and I don't know if I have seen him play anything except for George Michael since. That is fine for awhile but I get the sense that I might grow tired of it eventually. This movie was enjoyable for its absurdest sensibilities and for some decent casting. Nothing really blew me away but I genuinely believed that everyone in it was who they were playing. I didn't appreciate the end message which seemed both disingenuous and heavy handed. Still, its nice to see a movie about unabashed love and teen awkwardness portrayed w/o a high degree of shock value. Maybe I am a little old fashioned but I can still appreciate a good…

When I saw the coming attractions for this movie, they only focused on the alter ego/split identity part of the story, and that seemed kind of goofy. Plus, I wasn't sure how far they could take that idea.Watching Youth In Revolt in all its glory, I was very impressed. In addition to Cera, who's always good, check out this supporting cast:Fred Willard. Steve Buscemi. Zach Galifinakis. Ray Liotta. Jean Smart. Justin Long. Eugene Roche. Mary Kay Place. The guy from Spring Awakening who was also in Nick & Nora's Infinite Playlist.Give it a shot. If you're looking for something offbeat & good you won't be disappointed. Even the music is good.
