    Youth In Revolt is full of humor and some great one liners. I didn’t know what to expect with this movie going into it and to say the least i was greatly surprised by this movie. I didn’t find one boring moment in the whole movie at all. I would have to say one of the better humor movies i’ve seen in quite some time. I would highly recommend this movie and I give it a 8 out of 10.
