Youth in Revolt

This weekend movie selection was Youth in Revolt.

The movie is about an awkward teenage boy who finds the girl of his dreams while on vacation. When he is forced to leave her behind, he devises a plan to reunite with her. Part of that plan involves him getting into as much trouble as possible and to do that, he adopts a secondary persona he calls Francois.

While Michael Cera does a fine job of acting, part of me wonders how long he'll be able to pull off these cutesy teenage love stories that seem to have become his thing. I mean, the man is 22.

Other stars gracing this DVD include: Ray Liota, Jean Smart, Steve Buscemi, Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover), Justin Long and Fred Willard.

Youth in Revolt is very quirky and funny. There were a couple of very weird animation sequences, which worked okay in this movie. I give it a B+.

Also, Michael Cera looks a bit like a triCERAtops. Hmmm, is the name intentional? I think so.

  1. OMG. You are totally right. Michael Cera is a total dinosaur. Related: Umacorn. Think about it.
