Critic Reviews of "Youth in Revolt"Time OutFebruary 05, 2010
The tone throughout is moderately quirky rather than full-on teen-flick vulgarian, bolstered by indie-cred cameos.New York Magazine/VultureJanuary 11, 2010
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.Houston ChronicleJanuary 08, 2010
A clever and often riotous burst of cynicism that pushes, let's face it, some pretty questionable ideas.Globe and MailJanuary 08, 2010
Cera may be trapped in his unchanging persona, but no more than this picture is walled in by its sitcom conventions.Detroit NewsJanuary 08, 2010
Youth in Revolt is a teen fantasy filled with lust, imagination, frustration and lots of laughs, artfully made and superbly played.New York TimesJanuary 08, 2010
A sweet and slight and often charming coming-of-age tale.Critic's NotebookOctober 07, 2015
Miguel Arteta furnishes the film with fantasy sequences - such as one involving stop-motion miniature models - that are more contrived than inspired.Big HollywoodSeptember 17, 2012
An uneven story and crass comedy could leave viewers revolted.Film Journal InternationalAugust 15, 2011
Michael Cera adopts a mischievous alter ego in an attempt to reunite with his dream girl in a familiarly peculiar story.What CultureFebruary 03, 2011
Playing on feelings and impulses that I'm sure we all relate to, a witty and playful portrait of teen love emerges out of a less exciting teen comedy.Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)December 30, 2010
Nick Twisp is no Scott Pilgrim, but this is another witty ensemble comedy that successfully reinvigorates that most benighted of genres, the teen film.Common Sense MediaDecember 19, 2010
Story of "bad-boy" teen is funny, but also rough and raw.
