Youth in Revolt - Review


Michael Cera plays a very Michael Cera kind of fellow in Youth in Revolt. The go-to guy for funny-nerdy-cute hoodie roles after his memorable work in Superbad, Juno, and Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist, Cera stars as Nick Twisp, a virginal but sexually inflamed, maturely sardonic but immaturely squid-bodied teen with a crush on a girl named Sheeni Saunders (Portia Doubleday). Sheeni is a cool customer whose boyfriend is a smug, poetry-writing Mr. Perfect in a country-club sweater (Jonathan B. Wright) and whose own fantasies of sexual sophistication involve marrying a Frenchman. So to win Sheeni's love (and to impress her with his willingness to be bad, the way she claims to like her men), Nick adopts the alter ego of a Gallic troublemaker, François Dillinger. It's an understatement to call François, with his tight Euro pants and dirty mustache, a bad influence on the otherwise mild-mannered suburban American kid whose divorced, self-involved parents have no time for their son. Let's just say that at one point François inspires Nick to torch half of Oakland. With a nod to The Parent Trap, Cera plays both Nice Nick and Felonious François.
