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.

Youth in Revolt was such a funny comedy Michel Cera did a great job playing " Nick Twisp". and this got to be one of my favorite comedys

Variety
Cera and his gifted comic co-stars elevate the mediocre source material into a semi-iconic coming-of-age story. Full Review
Amy Biancolli
San Francisco Chronicle
A clever and often riotous burst of cynicism that pushes some pretty questionable ideas. Full Review
Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
A movie that feels written rather than lived; from "The Catcher in the Rye" to "Rushmore," it's a story we've seen in better versions before. Full Review

USA Today
Youth's screenplay, by Gustin Nash, is generally witty. Full Review

From the beginning, it's apparent that there's something "off" about Youth in Revolt. It's not that the film is fatally flawed, but the tone is uneven, the satire is blunt, the comedy rarely generates more than feeble laughs, and the lead character never comes fully to life. Full Review
