Youth In Revolt is an American film about a teenage boy who falls in love with a girl that he meets at a caravan park on holiday, however after she leaves the place, he does everything possible to try and get her back once again.

This was a pretty good film. It had a surprisingly intriguing story, and it definitely had some good comedy in it, although a lot of the jokes were relatively predictable. Also, it had an extremely weird concept, as the main character Nick created an alter ego for himself in the form of the womanising Frenchman, François.

It actually took me a while to get what was going on with this alter ego, and whether other people could see him, or Nick was just being delusional, but I got it in the end.

I was laughing a lot at certain points in this film, as some parts were absolutely hilarious, however some parts were a little boring and overly romantic, but the film still had a good story to follow, and was overall enjoyable to watch, so that’s why I’ll give it 7.2.
