    It's a bitch telling a coming-of-age story minus clichés and sappiness. So Youth in Revolt, with Michael Cera in his best performance yet, is a small miracle. show more

    Youth's screenplay, by Gustin Nash, is generally witty. show more

    This film is witty and charming, with quite a few laughs. Sadly, I believe an intellect similar in scope to that of the characters within may be needed for proper viewing. Its more quip and ************, not a fart joke vulgarity feast.

    One of the most underrated and original comedies in recent years.

    The film has great potential but just seems to like there were too many industry folks tinkering with it and could never agree on a single strong focus. Pity since Cera and Justin Long are always appealing - but this movie was also kept on the shelf for 18 months and then released in January which is usually quite telling.
