Youth In Revolt Trailer Features Double the Cera Action

That's double the Michael Cera action, the undisputed king of the geeky, awkward yet somehow cool and funny teenage males who manage to get the hot, sometimes equally geeky and funny teenage girl.

In Youth in Revolt, based on the novel by C.D Payne, Cera continues to play the geeky, awkward teen he is known for. This time round it is Nick Twisp a teen who enjoys Sinatra and Fellini while everyone around him, including his divorced, seem to be getting some action. Nick, as it usually goes, finds the girl of his dreams in the free-spirited Sheeni Saunders played by Portia Doubleday who is making her biggest appearance in a film to date. Thing is Sheeni has a boyfriend and among other complications which keep the two apart. To win Sheeni over Nick creates a rebellious alter ego called Francios who sports a moustache, cigarette and penchant for mayhem along with a desire to do anything to make Sheeni his girl. The film has a great accompanying cast including Justin Long, Zac Galifianakis, Steve Buscemi and Ray Liotta.

I liked seeing Cera as Francois because it is something different for him, he's able to act differently and show that he's not just the awkward, funny teen. Personally I love all these coming of age comedy/romance films. They are good for a few laughs, you don't have to think about anything, they usually have an amazing soundtrack and are generally just enjoyable to watch. Youth in Revolt looks to fit this formula and it will certainly be a film I'll end up seeing. It's released January 15, 2010.
