"Every ""Revolution"" Needs A Leader!"|Every "Revolution" Needs A Leader!
While his trailer trash parents teeter on the edge of divorce, nick twisp sets his sights on dream girl sheeni saunders, hoping that she'll be the one to take away his virginity.

"...a clever and often riotous burst of cynicism that pushes some pretty questionable ideas.  Amy Biancolli, San Francisco Chronicle
"...Michael Cera in his best performance yet...  Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Editor's Note
Teenage antihero Nick Twisp moves from the pages of the beloved novel YOUTH IN REVOLT to the screen with this film directed by Miguel Arteta (THE GOOD GIRL). Michael Cera (JUNO) stars as Nick, a teenager who may be wise beyond his years, but that doesn't stop him from getting in all sorts of trouble.

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"[S]weet...often charming....What counts is how Mr. Cera's face, much like that of a silent-screen actor, conveys sincerity and a sense of wonder..." 01/08/2010

Los Angeles Times
"Cera's casual-seeming skill and paradoxically reticent showmanship is routinely taken for granted." 01/08/2010

USA Today
"Nick is played with intellectual vigor and youthful angst by Michael Cera....It's a pleasant surprise to see the engaging, soft-spoken star of SUPERBAD and JUNO stretch and play a devil-may-care slimeball." 01/07/2010

Chicago Sun-Times
3 stars out of 4 -- "[It's Cera's] self-abasing modesty that makes the movie work." 01/06/2010

Wall Street Journal
"[A]n endearing coming-of-age comedy....[Mr. Cera's] inhibitions are translucent, rather than opaque; directly behind them, intelligence seethes and passion smolders." 01/08/2010

Box Office
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his is a fun piece....Fred Willard's reliably great as an ultra-leftist neighbor and Justin Long stands out..." 01/04/2010

Movieline
"[T]he casting is a perfect fit: Cera's expertise in playing the moon-faced aspirant is largely derived from the bewilderment he seems to radiate at being caught out of his time..." 01/07/2010

A.V. Club
"[A] broad, ambitious, agreeably wordy satire in the vein of Terry Southern or A CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES." -- Grade: B- 01/07/2010

Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "Cera manages to bring the extra something that makes this an unexpectedly appealing movie for both genders." 01/20/2009

Uncut
4 stars out of 5 -- "Director Miguel Arteta punches the plot -- essentially, a series of increasingly absurd sketches -- along, and there's excellent, if brief, turns from Steve Buscemi, Ray Liotta, M Emmet Walsh and Fred Willard." 02/08/2010

Empire
4 stars out of 5 -- "Cera gives his most nuanced performance to date, casually slipping from trademark nervy cuteness into a rather delicious, new thin-lipped misanthropy." 01/29/2010

Sight and Sound
"[T]he material makes a good fit for the mordant gaze of director Miguel Arteta....Arteta stages some uproariously funny set pieces..." 03/01/2010

Chicago Sun-Times 7 of 10
Michael Cera is not a sissy. It's more like he's unusual... diffident. Laid-back to a point approaching the horizontal. Yet he yearns. He's so filled with desire, it slops over. I speak not of the real Cera, unknown to me, but of the persona he has perfected in such movies as Superbad, Juno, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and most recently, Paper Heart...That was the comedy that pretended to be a documentary about his romance with Charlyne Yi, which was also going on in real life. That made for some ambivalent scenes, particularly since Yi herself is so far laid-back, the two could star in a movie based on Flatland...Cera's style lends itself to one note, and the movie wisely gives him another character to play, an imaginary alter ego named Francois Dillinger, inspired by Jean-Paul Belmondo. Of course Nick would know who Belmondo is. I'd believe him even if he were inspired by Jean Gabin. In this role, he has a mustache and smokes, but true to character, his mustache is wispy, and he always smokes like it's his first cigarette...It's often observed that comedy never works if an actor signals that he's just said something funny. I don't know if Michael Cera can do that. It requires such bold assertion. You'd get suicidal trying to get him to laugh at a joke. This passiveness is why he's funnier than Jack Black, for example, in their movie Year One. One of the secrets of Youth in Revolt is that Nick seems bewildered by his own desires and strategies. He knows how he feels, he knows what he wants, but he'd need a map to get from A to B. It's his self-abasing modesty that makes the movie work. Here, you feel, is a movie character who would find more peace on the radio. - Roger Ebert
