Youth In Revolt Movie Review

Youth In Revolt 7/10
For wacky and weird, just add Steve Buscemi. Michael Cera, Zach Galifianakis, Justin Long, and Steve Buscemi = winner for awkward, offbeat ensemble cast. I must admit that I had pigeonholed this earlier in the year after seeing the ridiculous trailer, but I gave it a chance after seeing the cast and directing credits. I am pleased to report that it is nothing like the dime-a-dozen crap that opens most other weekends. Youth In Revolt is part Zwigoff, part Godard, and maybe a smidge of Woody Allen and Wes Anderson. It is a clever mix of coming-of-age tale, farce, screwball comedy, and teen romance based on the C.D. Payne novel.
