Youth in Revolt was definitely not a great movie, but to me it was just a little better than 'okay'. The two main characters were interesting enough that it could have been a really good movie, I just felt it didn't end up using those strong characters effectively. If you like movies that can at least hold your interest and attention for 90 minutes, this is worth giving a shot.

An OK coming of age movie about young love. The alter Ego was the best character of all.

Enjoyable enough, but folks should read the book, which is sharper, more poignant and funnier.

The first 10 minutes were promising, but then I got bored to death!

I liked this movie much more than I had thought I would. It has a fun storyline, great scripting, and all the actors have wonderful chemistry. Now while I don't think this movie is for everyone I would have to say its worth at least giving it a chance. I would recommend this to fans of darker comedies.

I love Cera and hence love this movie which utilizes his acting the only way you can: let Cera be Cera. The twist(p) here is that he also plays his evil alter ego, which is hilarious. The story is fun and funny. Pretty much all Cera, though, so if you don't like him in his various incarnations from Arrested Development to Scott Pilgrim, you probably won't like this either.
