  • 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.
  • Credits
    Michael Cera, Portia Doubleday, Steve Buscemi, Ray Liotta, Justin Long, Jean Smart, Ari Graynor, Fred Willard, Zach Galifianakis, Mary Kay Place
  • Critic Reviews
    "[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..."
    New York Times

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

    "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."
    USA Today

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

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

    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..."
    Box Office

    "[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..."

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

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

    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."

    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."

    "[T]he material makes a good fit for the mordant gaze of director Miguel Arteta....Arteta stages some uproariously funny set pieces..."
