Youth in Revolt was a terrible disappointment. I'm a fan of Michael Cera, the rest of the cast looked great, and the concept seemed reasonably novel: a sort of teenage Fight Club. But there was so much going on and the movie never seemed to settle on what kind of movie it wanted to be. Was it a quirky, languid first-love story? The aforementioned alternate personalities adventure? A teen sex comedy? In the end, the whole thing was muddled and unsatisfying.
